Low oil breakfast

As a kid, I loved taking bread rolls to my school but they were deep fried in oil, I stopped eating them as I grew older. That was till I bought the Philips Airfryer, things changed. I started making bread rolls in airfryer and indulged in guilty free pleasures of eating this yummy breakfast dish once again.

Crunchy from outside and oh so soft and delicious potato filling with every bite, this is an ideal dish to make for your child for his school lunch or eat them yourself for breakfast with ginger tea.


Instead of potatoes, you can stuff any filling inside the bread roll and it will taste just as good.

Airfryer – how it works

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that works by using high-speed hot air circulation. When the fryer is working, it begins to produce hot air and a mechanical fan begins to circulate it very fast around the food, which fry the food and produces a crispy layer. By circulating air up to 200 Celsius degrees, this appliance fry several foods like potato chips, chicken, fish or pastries and it uses no oil.

Boil the potatoes with a spoon full of salt, peel and thoroughly mash them.

Step 2

In a pan, heat a Tsp of oil and add mustard seeds. After the seeds sputter, add onions, fry till they are translucent and add turmeric and curry leaves. Fry for a few seconds, add the mashed potatoes, salt and mix well. Cool this mixture.

Make 8 equal portions of the mixture, shape them in your palm in an oval shape. Keep aside.

Step 4

Trim the bread from the sides and wet it completely with water, press the bread with your palm and remove excess water.

Step 5

Keep the wet bread in your palm, place the oval shaped potato and roll the bread in a spindle shape and seal the edges such that the potato filling is completely inside the bread.

    Hi, which option to use in the airfryer? Roast, grill, toast or pizza?
    Also which plate to use? Baking plate or the fries baskets?

      I have a Philips airfryer and it does not have these options, but you can use the fries basket and roast it.

    I tried this in my Philips Viva Collection HD9220 Air Fryer. The Bread rolls are very crispy outside and tender on the inside with all the potato stuffing. Yummy 🙂 Keep posting more recipes.

    Excellent recipe. The photo looks really awesome and delicious. Love the simple step by step instructions. And yup, cooking fried dishes with air fryers is really a healthy alternative to using deep fryers or cooking in oil with traditional pots and pans.

    I am so happy I bumped into your web site and this recipe. I have recently acquired the Philips Air Fryer and was experimenting with different recipes. Bread rolls used to be the favourite afternoon snacks when my kids came back from school and they just used to love them. They have grown older and I have grown old and fried stuffs are almost out of our menu these days. Your recipe gives all of us a chance to relive the old days.
    We add a bit of red chilli powder and half a teaspoonof Amchoor to the filling and it gives a bit of pep. My wife suggests we add finely chopped green chillies instead of red chilli powder.
    Thank you very much for the nice web site too!

    The Airfryer idea is a fantastic machine for a quick, easy 2 person meal and plus cooking was much healthier.
    I own a Philips AirFryer and use it often to enjoy French Fries, Fried Plantains, Chicken Wings, Chicken Fried Steak, Homemade Sweet Potato Tater Tots. Everybody should have one!
