Aloo Kathi Roll

Blogging Marathon #138 Week 4, Day 1
Theme : Street Food Special

When I chose this theme, I knew my husband and son would love it! I decided to go with kathi rolls as my son loves these. Initial plan was to make an Aloo tikki karthi roll, but finally ended up making a much simpler one. It tasted great and uses a few pantry/fridge staples.

For the bread, I used fresh whole wheat chapati But you can use tortillas or frozen plain parathas. The green mint chutney is also freshly prepared but this is another thing you can pick up at your local Indian store. With some boiled potatoes and quick pickled onions , this dish is a breeze to put together!

All you need to do is spread green chutney to the roll, add the potato filling, top with onions.. and there you have it – Your kathi roll is ready!

Read on for the recipe.


  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of chili powder, chaat masala, cumin powder, garam masala and salt as needed
  • 2 teaspoons of green chutney
  • 1 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 small green chili, chopped
  • A squirt of lemon juice
  • 2 chapatis or plain parathas or tortillas


  1. Prepare the onions first. Add Sliced onions and green chilies to a bowl. Add salt as needed. Set aside for 10-15 minutes. Once it releases some liquid, drain it and add a squirt of lemon juice. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the potato filling. Crush the boiled potatoes into smaller chunks using your hand. Heat oil, add all the spices and salt. Add the crushed potatoes to the masalas immediately. Mix well and taste test. Adjust seasonings if needed. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Heat a tawa and cook your chapati/ tortilla/parathas.
  4. Assemble the kathiroll – Apply a teaspoon of green chutney to the chapati. Add some of the prepared potato mix. Top with onion slices. Roll tightly and use foil or wax paper to hold the roll in place. Enjoy by itself or with yogurt or a dip of your choice!
