Chicken Roll


Being in US during Durga Pujo is a torture, more so because we live in a region with not that much of a bong population. What fun is there in pujo if you can’t gorge on the road side chicken roll.

Making rolls at home may be too much of trouble, especially if you have to run to the various pujo-mandaps. Here’s a super short-cut way to make very tasty roll at home out of readily available stuff.

Get hold of some ready to cook paratha from the nearest Asian/Indian store. I get mine from Mayuri in the Redmond area. Any brand should do, but I’d strongly recommend the Kawan or Deep flakey parathas. Something like below.

Now you need to get the filling, there are various ready to make Kababs that you can get from these stores as well. I use the Chicken Tikka Boti  from Colonel Kababz. The various other Kebabs like Seekh, Malai work equally well. Just dig around in the Indian store refrigerators and pick things like this



  1. Fry the Paratha and the Kebab (around 2/3 pieces) according to the instructions on the package
  2. Place some chopped onion, green chili and Kebab on the paratha
  3. Put a little pudina (mint) chutney, tomato sauce on it. Be creative and use whatever sauce you like. E.g. Sriracha/Chili sauce will also work.
  4. Sprinkle some rock salt (beet-noon)
  5. Roll the whole thing using a paper kitchen towel, napkin.

Your sumptuous roll is ready to eat.

Hi Somtapa,
Thanks for the recipes. The instructions are pretty clear. I just noticed one thing. In the chicken roll recipe you mentioned rock salt (beet-noon). As far as my knowledge goes, beet-noon is black salt while rock salt is "shoindhob lobon".
Keep up the nice work.

Thanks Hashmi,
Yes, you are absolutely right. It should be the black salt not the rock. Thanks once again for bringing this to my notice and also liking the blog. Happy cooking.

is there a difference between the two or is the black salt just the powdered version of the rock salt. If there can you find black salt at the indian grocery stores in the US

Rock Salt is different. Black salt is available in powdered version in US grocery stores.
