Chinese Bhajiya roll

Kathi rolls were originated in Calcutta with kababs like beef,chicken amd mutton and the variations are endless today.Everyone coming with their own version here to suit their taste buds.I developed his recipe to the exact taste of my twins,knowing what they will like n what not.This roll has being a hit with them,actually made this for their lunch box as every mother will understand the pain of making something different every day for kids,it’s a huge task.So just grabbed whatever was in my pantry and essembled ,there you go a delicious mouthwatering, tasty and tangy with some spicyness here it is Chinese bhajiya roll

Chinese is every childs favourite cuisine,I can say even adults,so best roll I thaught of making was this.Purely being my way of cooking here,I have not used maida rotis only wheat flour rotis to keep it healthy.

Kathi rolls are basically any kabab or bajiya rolled into Indian flat bread like maida ki roti or gehu ki roti.

A best lunch box idea or snack

Samosa recipe/ How to make samosa

This generation is divided into two parts half being the pizza gang and half being the Indian samosa gang😂😂I hope you agree,if not you are free to do so😉but if you take on a serious note there still are people who would give away pizza for samosa and with people I mean the younger generation.

And the gang that I am talking about is none other than my twins,they love samosa.The street from where they pass by for classes has a small hotel from where aroma of Deep frying samosas just make you feel hungry and wanting to just have , from that place samosa have become my twins fav,in either way it had to happen as their dad is a hardcore fan of Samosa 😃.

Coming from Uttar Pradesh where all the samosa and chaat stuff started making them was never a big deal and every house had their own way of making masala.The whole trick lies in the masala or stuffing of samosa a little bit here n there with the masala you are gone,so perfect quantity of spices is the main stuff.

This recipe which I am sharing is the one made by all the local shopkeepers from Purvanchal region and main bazar of our native place that’s Pattinarendrapur,any person who has tried samosa from UP will get easily connect to it by have this one.
