I had kathi roll only once in bombay cafe. It was paneer kathi roll. It wasnt that good, in-fact I cant even finish it. It was so bland. But I like the way Kathi roll is rolled and the way we can hold and eat it. Being here in Singapore, I had no chance to taste kathi roll anywhere else. I think I should try tasting all the kathi rolls in Chennai when I visit next timeBlushing. But when I tried this aloo kathi roll when I took inspiration from Facebook pictures someone shared from a shop, I really loved it. So simple yet filling and mainly tasty! So thought I should post it. It is very easy and simple, you can pack this in lunch box for yourself or your kids. You can also make as a snack when they come hungry in the evening back from school.

Kathi roll recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 20 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Makes: 9


Atta (wheat flour) - 1 cup

Dhaniya powder - 1 tsp

Red chilli powder - 1 tsp

Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp

Jeera - 1 tsp

Potato - 3

Cheese, grated - 1/4 cup

Onion - 1

Tomato ketchup - 3 tblsp

Green chutney - 2 tblsp

Coriander leaves (optional) - As needed

Oil/ Ghee - As needed

Salt - As needed


  1. Boil / pressure cook potatoes for 3 whistles, until done. Heat kadai with oil and splutter jeera. Add the cooked, peeled and roughly cubed potatoes. Add coriander seeds powder (dhaniya powder),chat masala, red chilli powder and salt. Mix well and fry for 2 minutes. Keep aside.
  2. 1-kathi
  3. Prepare the dough as we do for roti and keep aside for 20 mins. Then knead again,and divide into 9 or 10 equal sized balls,roll it out to roti, slightly thick. Toast both sides carefully in tawa without browning it too much. Prepare all the roti and keep aside.
  4. Chop onion roughly and gather all the things needed for the kathi roll. Take one roti, spread a tsp of green chutney first. Let it be slightly towards the bottom of the roti.2-kathi
  5. Then the prepared aloo curry, cheese, ketchup on top of it.
  6. 3-kathi
  7. Then lastly chopped onion. If you dont have green chutney, you can omit and add some chopped coriander leaves over the onions. You can just roll and pack with foil like this as such. Or do a pack roll as in the next steps.
  8. 4-kathi
  9. First fold the sides as shown in the picture. The fold it from the bottom to cover the stuffing and roll.(Refer video)
  10. 5-kathi
  11. You can sprinkle a little bit cheese towards the end so that it can hold the roll. Toast with ghee it if needed.
  12. 6-kathi


  • You can make the dough with maida or half maida half wheat flour.
  • Skip cheese if you do not want.
  • If your rotis are thin, then it may tear, so roll slightly thick, so that it will be filling for your also .
  • The size of the roll is purely your choice. Aj always likes it small. 
  • The aloo curry can be a left over curry too if making and consuming immediately.

Enjoy the big bite - filling and tasty! I am totally in love with this kathi roll these days!


And here is the video how I rolled. I am also no expert, but thought might help to get an idea:) Excuse the video quality.
