Spinach Masala Bread Rolls


        Wow!! Guess what? This is my 1000th post. What an amazing journey it was since I started blogging from August 2014. I take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and each and everyone of you all for being there with me in this culinary journey of mine. Thanks again for all the support in helping me reach this milestone, without which it would not have been possible.  

          Now coming to the recipe. This is just a simple homemade freshly baked Masala Bread Rolls with some spinach puree (that was leftover from making spinach naan the other day).  Relish this as an evening tea-time snack. You can also have these bread rolls with soup, with some cheese in between, as a vada pav or burger. So check for an easy step by step method with pictures to prepare it.







          I must confess that this blogging journey was simply awesome. It was sometimes hectic and time consuming, but nevertheless, I enjoyed every bit of it. Absolutely no regrets and I kept learning on the way. Am still learning something new every other day and trying to improve in every sense possible. 

          The most challenging part was in the presentation. I try to give an artistic touch to the dish and make it more appealing as well as appetizing. I promise to keep this flow of easy, simple and interesting (healthy too) recipes coming your way. Hoping to have your support in my future endeavours in the blogging world.
