Bread patties recipe with step by step pics. These are easy and tasty patties made with bread and savory spiced mashed potatoes stuffing. They make for a good tea time snack.

potato bread pattice served on a white platter with a small bowl of sweet date-tamarind chutney kept on the left side and text layovers.

The recipe is similar to Bread pakoda but the taste is different. This crispy tasty bread snack is also known as bread pattice.

In bread pakoda, the potato mixture is stuffed between two bread slices. In bread patties the potato mixture is placed only on one bread slice and then coated with besan (gram flour) batter and shallow fried.

So from one slice you get to taste the crisp besan coated bread and from the other side the potato mixture covered with a crisp besan coating.

I came across this bread pattice snack at a Parsi acquaintance’s place. She had served us these scrumptious bread patties with ginger tea as an evening snack.

Later I made this recipe many times as it a favorite with the family. These can also be served as finger food for parties or small get together.

In the stepwise pics, I have illustrated with pictures on cooking the potatoes in a pressure cooker, but if you know the method of cooking potatoes, then you can cook the potatoes a day before. Refrigerate them and then use next day.

For the stuffing of Bread Patties, I have used the same stuffing that is made for batata vada.

But you can always change or alter the stuffing as per your taste requirements. Also some grated cheddar cheese can also be added.

You can check these similar snacks recipes with bread that are made with different variations and stuffings:

  1. Paneer bread roll
  2. Bread roll – soft spiced mashed potato filling.
  3. Cheese roll – with a cheesy spiced potato stuffing.
  4. Bread cutlet – made with mixed veggies in the filling.

Making bread pattice is easy and you can even make these as an after-school snack for kids. For the bread you can use any type of bread like wheat flour bread, multi-grain bread or brown bread or white bread or sandwich bread.

Serve bread patties hot with mint coriander chutney or saunth chutney or mint chutney or tomato ketchup.
