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. You can use any bread like Whole wheat bread, Brown bread or White 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.

  1. thnku I’ll must try it now

    • happy baking aman 🙂

  2. hey dassana I have again same problem. I love ur dishes but I don’t have oven so I can’t make it if u can help me to cook these tartles without oven then plz do it

    • aman, do you have an appe pan/paniyaram pan. then you can make these tartlets in it. just toast the bread first very lighty in the pan. and then add the toppings and cheese. cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low flame till the cheese melts. or you can use small steel bowls and place them in the pressure cooker. keep the bowls in a pan that fits inside the cooker. you can see the method of baking in a pressure cooker here –

  3. Hi dassana,
    Love this recipe.. Wanted to try for a snack party but I have a doubt.. Will it become soggy if it’s prepared ahead of time ??

    • these do not become soggy. but the cripsness will go away. what you can do is bake the bread tartlets till light golden without any filling. when they cool down, remove and store them in an air tight container. just before serving, remove and place the filling and bake till the cheese melts.

  4. awesome recipe………………!!!! :* <3 ^_^

  5. Wanted to make these ever since I read the recipe and laid my eyes on them! Finally made them today, and they have won me over……. Yummy and a no oil preparation. What more can u ask for?

    • welcome anu and thanks for this lovely feedback.

  6. Just tried this out today with minor changes ! Came out pretty good ! Have also bookmarked ur bhatura recipe (wth overnight fermenting stuff ) , will try that n let u know

    • thanks kalyani. will like to hear your feedback on bhatura. one of my favorite recipe.

  7. 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?

    • it is a bit loose.

  8. 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.

      • that would be great! thanks!!!

  9. 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!

    • do try chitra and let me know….. thanks for commenting positively on the posts.

  10. 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.

  11. Amazing I will soon try them Dassana 🙂

  12. Really very tasty and beautiful snack, I like it.

  13. Such a great idea… It can be a great party starter with variety of fillings! Will make this soon!

    • yes chinmayie, its a great party starter that can be made with a variety of fillings. i forgot to mention this in the post, though.

  14. Dassana…I tried these bread tartlets for Sunday Breakfast, was too tempted to make them as soon as saw ur recipe…they came out too good! Kids and Hubby loved these tartlets, I served them along with the vegetable cutlets….made them for the first time! Thank you…..

    • 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… :).

        • welcome anamika. i have also begun to make it often now. just now made with mushroom and herbs filling. simply awesome.

  15. These tartlets look fantastic!
