Recipe Notes

Notes:

  • You can use kalonji seeds and lemon juice, but if your dahi is sour then skip lemon juice.
  • Soya chunks will absorb all the marinade and the potatoes will give a good texture, you can also add paneer if you want too.
  • If you want to make small kathi rolls then you can make 6-8 lacha paratha from the dough.
  • The restaurant use Dalda instead of oil for laminating the lacha parathas. You can use ghee as well.
  • You can use eggs for the omelette, if you are non-vegetarian.
  • Kathi means sticks in Bengali, hence the name Kathi Rolls. They are also known as stick kebabs.

Tips:

  • You can make all the items much in advance; all you need to do is assemble it before serving.
