Years flew like minutes... We had lovely 10 years of companionship and we wish many more like that. Now, what has this statement got to do with bombshell? This was my dear husband's favorite snack. He invented(sounds so scientific!! take it in a lighter note) and christianed it 10 years ago. Anytime of the day he was ready for it and never got satisfied even after sending down 6 of them! Alas! all sinfully rich and delicious things are unhealthy :-( .
Oh ya!..this was a tasty alternative for samosas for us, as we never got crispy outercovering..ehehee..
To sum up bombshell, is a spicy potato stuffed in bread and deep fried to make it rich and sinfull :D
What you need :
Your style potato stuffing. It can be as simple as potato palya stuffing you make for dosa. You can consider adding garam masala powder to make it fragrant. Spice it up as you like.
Bread slices few with edges trimmed.
Dip: Plain flour slurry (1 tbsp of maida/plainflour mixed with 1/8 cup of water, a runny batter just to coat the bread)
How to make:
1.Dip your hands in water and press the bread by placing it between two palms. Repeat till bread is slightly wet from all sides.
2.Make small oval shaped balls of the stuffing and place it in the middle of the wet bread slice.
3. Seal the edges in oval shape. You can consider shaping it in your own way.
4. Coat this seal bread with maida slurry.
5. Deep fry in hot oil till you get golden brown bomb shells.
6. Serve hot with Tomato Ketchup.
