The only time it takes to prepare is the filling, which is prepared using broccoli, red and yellow bell pepper, capsicum, potato, onion, tomato, and a melange of spices.
1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 handful chopped coriander leaves
1/4 cup refined oil
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 capsicum (green pepper)
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic paste
salt as required
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1 medium onion
To prepare this delicious kathi roll, put a large pan over medium flame and boil water in it mixed with a little salt. Meanwhile, cut the broccoli in florets and wash them in running water. Once the water is boiled, add these broccoli florets in it and keep it inside for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the flame and strain the extra water from the broccoli. Transfer to a bowl and pat dry these florets. Keep aside in a bowl until required.
Now, peel the onion and thinly slice in a bowl. Afterwards, wash the red and yellow bell pepper along with capsicum, and thinly slice them as well. Wash the tomato and finely chop in a small bowl.
Now, put a saucepan over medium flame and heat a little oil in it. One the oil is hot enough, add cumin seeds in it and let them crackle for a few seconds. Then, add ginger-garlic paste in it along with chopped onion. Once the raw smell of garlic goes away, add tomato along with sliced bell peppers in the pan. Cook them for 2-3 minutes and then add all the masalas in the pan. Stir and let the veggies cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Finally, add mashed potatoes in the pan along with broccoli florets and stir fry for another 2 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves and turn off the flame. The filling for kathi roll is ready.
Then, warm the chapatis on tawa or you can also use a microwave for the same. Place a chapati on flat surface, and add the 2-3 tablespoons of filling in it. Roll the chapati tightly and use a foil paper to hold the filling. Serve with mint chutney.
