  • 250 gm boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup finely sliced onions
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced ginger
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 1-2 chopped green chillies
  • 5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp green coriander and mint chutney


  • 3 tbsp curd
  • 3 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

For the wraps/rotis

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
  • Salt to taste


  • To begin, take about 250 gms of boneless chicken thighs. You can use any kind of meat for this recipe, but red meat works best. Cut the chicken thighs into small pieces.
  • In a large bowl, marinate the chicken with curd, ginger garlic paste, salt, Kashmiri red chilli powder, cumin powder (jeera) and coriander powder (dhania). Mix well and leave aside to marinate for 1-2 hours.
  • In the meantime, make the dough for the rolls. Knead together all-purpose flour, wheat flour, oil, salt, and carom seeds (ajwain). Keep aside to rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • To make the stuffing, heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add the marinated chicken and saute. Add a bit of water if required. Cook the chicken until tender. Turn off the heat and allow it cool.
  • In a large bowl, take the cooked chicken. Add in the finely sliced onions, ginger juliennes, chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chillies, and mix.
  • Add the lemon juice, garam masala, and green coriander and mint chutney. Mix well and keep aside.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll them out into thin rotis. Cook the rotis on a hot tawa or griddle. Add a bit of oil on both sides for the color. Remove and keep aside.
  • To assemble, place the rotis on a flat surface. Add a portion of the stuffing and roll them up.
  • Chicken Kathi Rolls are ready to serve. Serve them hot with tomato ketchup or chutney of your choice.
