Egg Chicken Kathi Roll: A Famous Street Food From Kolkata

I think among all foods we all love street foods the most, because there are so many varieties in street foods. India is famous for street food, form north to south and east to west there are different variety of street foods. Mumbai is famous for juhu chopati where people actually go to have different street foods, so as Kolkata where you will get the good street food and that too in very cheap rate. I am Bengali and belong to Kolkata just for that I am not saying that because I came across so many people who asked me about the food of Kolkata streets. 

Among all the street foods my all-time favorite is CHICKEN ROLL; there are few shops near my home where people just come to have the various rolls like EGG ROLL, CHICKEN ROLL, MUTTON ROLL, PANEER ROLL, VEG ROLL, PRAWN ROLL etc. And if you order for your roll I think before 30 mints you will never get your order. What I love about chicken roll is the crispness off the paratha and the yummy chicken bites. Tried to make something like that to cherish my old evenings, but I made EGG CHICKEN ROLL so at a time you will able to have EGG ROLL+ CHICKEN ROLL.

Preparation time: 10 mint.
Cooking time: 20 mint.

For paratha:
1.All-purpose flour: one cup. (for four egg chicken rolls)
2.Pinch of baking powder.
3.Pinch of salt.
4.Pinch of sugar.
5.Three tea spoon sunflower oil.

For roll stuffing:
1.Boneless chicken bites: 200 gm.
2.One large red onion sliced.
3.One green bell pepper sliced.
4.One pieces of lemon.
5.Four chopped green chilies.
6.Chaat Masala, Red chili powder, Black pepper powder (half tea spoon of each item.
7.One tea spoon ginger garlic paste.
8.One tea spoon curd.
9.Salt and sugar as per taste.
10.Four eggs.


Wash and clean the chicken bites, now marinate them with curd, some black pepper powder, some red chili powder, salt, some oil and lemon juice for 10 mints.

Now grill the chicken bites in high temperature of your oven for 10 mints or till the chicken bites are cooked properly. (You can skewer the chicken pieces or just leave them in a greased pan and try to place them separately don’t overlap).

Now add some oil in a vessel and slowly add the sliced onions and sliced green peppers and fry in high flame for some time.

Now reduce the heat and add the ginger garlic paste and fry for some time.

Next add rest of the red chili powder, black pepper powder, the chaat masala with some salt and sugar and mix well.

Now add the grilled chicken bites and cook for another 5 mints, your roll stuffing is ready

Make dough with all the paratha ingredients, the dough need to look smooth and shiny. Make four equal size balls with the dough.

Roll a round shape big size paratha with help of a rolling pin, Now fry each paratha with some oil.

Now take an egg to be beaten with some salt, add some oil in a pan and slowly add the beaten egg to make a round shape omelette. When the lower portion is cooked properly place a fried paratha on the top of the uncooked side of the omelette and fry slowly. 

Now turn the paratha you can see that in one side of the paratha the omelette got attached so nicely, and you can also eat this as EGG PARATHA which is really yummy with some salads and sauce.

Now do the same with rest of the parathas, now place the paratha in a butter paper  and the side on which you have put the egg should be on the top. In the middle of each paratha add the chicken stuffing; now sprinkle some green chilies and some lemon juice on top of the stuffing. 

Now roll the parathas with the paper and wrap the lower portion.

The yummy EGG CHICKEN KATHI ROLL is ready serve hot otherwise the test will become light.
