Kolkata’s kathi rolls

I have never been to Kolkata. I heard it is called the “City of Joy”.  But what brings the joy to a true foodie like me? Of course the food! Kolkata is also known for its mouthwatering street food and lip smacking sweets. In today’s post I am going to tell you all about the famous kathi rolls which you get in Kolkata’s every nook and corner. It is available both in veg and non veg variety. I am using egg and vegetables but if you are non vegetarian then use chicken or any meat of your choice.

So let’s begin!

Method:

For rolls, I have used ready-made kerala parottas. If you want you can make fresh parathas and use them.

Slice the onion and dip the sliced onion in the vinegar.

Chop the cucumber and green chilies, and keep these vegetables aside.

In a bowl, make the batter of two eggs.

In a flat pan, put oil and fry the parotta from one side till it is nice and golden.

Before you flip the side, spread the egg batter on top of the parotta and now flip.

Fry the flipped side as well till it becomes golden. Similarly prepare other parottas based on your requirement.

Now to make the rolls, on the egg side of the parotta, sprinkle the chat masala.

Spread the vinegar dipped onions, cucumber, and green chilies.

Put the chings schezwan chutney on top and make the roll.

Kathi roll is ready!
