Watching cooking shows on tv with my diary and pen is my favorite pass time. And this how I had started collecting recipes much before my blogging days. Initially, I didn't have many options with cooking shows and channels...Khana Khazana was the show I would watch for Indian recipes and Martha Stewart for cakes and bakes. The kitchen decor and the cutlery Martha used in her shows would always distract me from watching the actual cooking of hers.

Tandoori Chicken Roll is also inspired by a Canadian tv show on Food Network which is all about food trucks and street food. The name of the show is 'Eat Street' hosted by James Cunningham who tries out all kind of truck food dishes. There was one particular food truck which served Indian food and the tandoori roll was supposed to be the most popular one. They tried to make it more creative by preparing their own achari flavored mayonnaise along with tandoori chicken bite-size pieces, a mint chutney and some crisp salad for the crunch.

Here is my version of a Tandoori chicken roll where I have added a layer of omelet which is of course optional. In case if you are not an egg fan, you can very well opt it out. This tandoori roll can be made with leftover tandoori chicken pieces as well.

How to make mint chutney for rolls?

Mint chutney for rolls has to be slightly dry and not watery in texture. You will find different kinds of recipes on my blog for this chutney but for a whole wheat roll, we need to be very careful so that the wrap does not get soggy.

  • 2 green chilies
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 cup mint leaves 
  • 1 cup green coriander 
  • 1 tbsp roasted chana dal
Store this chutney in a dry glass container up to 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. You can also pour into the ice tray cubes and freeze.

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Marinating time: 30 minutes
Total time: 60 minutes
1 cup = 250 ml capacity
Serves 5


Chicken Stuffing
500 grams chopped boneless chicken
2 tablespoon yogurt
1 tablespoon ginger garlic and green chili paste
1 tablespoon tandoori masala powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 large onion, sliced
1 capsicum sliced

Salad (mix together)
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 carrot shredded
1 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon black pepper

Other Ingredients
5 rotis
2 eggs
Mint chutney
2 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoon cooking oil


1. In a bowl mix together boneless chicken pieces with yogurt, ginger garlic and green chili paste, Tandoori masala powder, salt and lemon juice. Marinate for 30 minutes. While the chicken is marinating, you can prepare the rotis, mint chutney and salad.
2. Heat cooking oil in a deep pan and cook the marinated chicken till fully done. Add chopped onion and chopped capsicum to the chicken pieces and cook on high heat for 2 minutes. Make sure that onion and capsicum are crunchy and not overcooked.
3. Remove the chicken stuffing and set aside.
4. Whisk 2 eggs along with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a non-stick pan and add a tablespoon of egg mixture and swirl the pan around to make a thin omelet. Place a roti on the omelet and the flip on the other side so that the egg gets stuck to the roti. (watch the video to see this step).
5. Remove the egg roti from the pan and spread a tablespoon of green chutney over the wrap. Place some tandoori chicken stuffing along with some salad.
6. Wrap the roll in a sandwich paper or foil paper and serve hot.
