this dish is one dish that does not limit your creativity. the stuffing can be your own choice of veggies and you can also spice it according to your taste buds. be creative and have fun. also this recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.

lets start step by step bread tartlets recipe:

1: first of all you need to cook the potato. prick the potato with a fork all over and microwave it for 4-5 minutes in the oven.

remove the crusts from the sides of the bread. cut the bread into squares if the bread is large. if small bread then don’t need to cut into squares. flatten each square piece of the bread with a rolling pin. arrange each bread in a muffin tin. brush with sunflower oil or olive oil. place a piece of crumpled aluminium foil in each bread to keep the bread pieces secured in the muffin tin.

2: bake in a preheated oven for 190 degree C for about 10-12 minutes or until the bread is crisp and browned. remove the muffin tin from the oven. throw away the foil. chop the boiled potato, onion and tomatoes. grate or chop the cheese. i kept the bread a little soft in the center as hubby prefers it that way.

    I tried these and came out really well. but the bread was a bit loose. It is the way it should be or did I do something wrong?

    hi Dassana, this dish is amazing!!! and its so easy that my 6 year old could do most of the things! its pics in your blog are so mouthwatering that i wanted to try it at once… but the problm was i don’t have an oven at home.. but that couldn’t stop me :-) .. i did it in an “appa maker” on a gas burner and it came out beautifully!! thanks a lot!

      thanks prajakta. glad to know that you tried the dish without an oven and happily made it in the appe maker. plus the recipe is easy to assemble by kids too. seeing your enthusiasm i feel i should add some recipes which do not require an oven.

    This is a good one Dassana. I will surely try it. Lovely tempting pics. As I told you earlier I enjoy each and every recipe of yours. Looking forward for more!

    They r really cute! I love the idea of using them as finger foods and there are so many options we can try with the stuffings. I have made many tartlets using puff pastry but bread is a better and healthy option!

      i had two disasters making puff pastry at home from scratch. when i saw this recipe i was like… so easy and quick… so given puff pastry and the puffs a break for some time.

      but still not given up to make the perfect puff pastry.

      thanks anamika for making the bread tartlets and also sharing your experience. you can make this with a variety of fillings spiced with indian, asian or even continental spices.

        Agree Dassana, I did try these again with boiled white chana’s (added chopped tomatoes, onions, salt, black pepper and tamarind mint chutney). They tasted too good, infact can do lots of variations. Planning to make some with sprouts ! Thanks for introducing me to these tartlets… :).
