For the filling of the Mexican Bread Rolls:

  1. To make the filling for the Mexican Bread Rolls, heat the butter in a broad non stick pan.
  2. Add the plain flour into the pan and cook on a medium flame for about 1 minute. Keep stirring continuously to avoid the formation of lumps. This mixture is called roux and is used as a thickening agent for most sauces and soups. When the roux is cookes it will release a beautiful aroma.
  3. Now, add the milk. It is very important to keep stirring the mixture continuously. Cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes till no lumps remain or till the sauce is thick. You can also use a whisk to stir the mixture.
  4. Add the corn to the thick mixture. Mexicans eat a lot of corn or maize in different forms. It is a key ingredient of most of the dishes in Mexican cuisine.
  5. Now, add the capsicum to perk up the flavours.
  6.  Add the cheese to enhance the texture and mouthfeel.
  7. Add the chilli flakes for the desired amount of spice in the Mexican Bread Rolls.
  8. Finally, add the salt to taste.
  9. Mix the mixture well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring continuously to avoid burning.
  10. After the mixture has thickened, transfer it into a bowl and keep aside to cool the mixture down slightly.

How to proceed for the Mexican Bread Rolls:

  1. Take a bread slice and remove the crust with the help of a sharp knife.
  2. Roll each slice with help of a rolling pin. Make sure that you use fresh bread slices. Stale or dry bread slices will break when you roll them.
  3. Apply some water at the edges of a bread slice.
  4. Put ½ tbsp of the filling in the centre of a bread slice.
  5. Press the edges to seal the stuffing. Keep a small bowl filled with water right next to your bread slice so that the process of rolling and sealing the Mexican Bread Rolls becomes easier.
  6. Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 10 more Mexican Bread Rolls.
  7. Heat the oil in a deep kadhai. Make sure that the oil is heated up well or else the bread will absorb too much of oil.

   Dear Reemanshuk, you can increase the amount of flour a little or decrease the amount of milk to get a thick stuffing. After cooling a while, the stuffing would thicken further.

Just finished making these bread rolls. This was really easy to make and was finger licking good to eat. My family appreciated this very much and according to my mother this was the best evening snack recipe I ever tried! I had one concern.... while the outer coat was crispy and crunchy, it didn't get a very uniform colour. However it didn't compromise the taste in any possible way. I made a few even without the cheese in the filling, which came out equally good.
