Indo-Chinese Kathi Rolls with Tamarind Hoisin Sauce and Turmeric Raita

Rated 5/5 from 2 Customer Reviews

The kathi roll, which hails from Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) in Bengal, consists of an Indian bread on which a thin omelette is cooked, then the whole thing is filled and rolled up like a large fajita. With a significant Chinese population, Kolkata is known for its Chinese-inspired Indian dishes, so we've filled our kathi roll with some big Chinese flavours. Homemade chive parathas are stuffed with sticky Sichuan pepper and chilli chicken, a hoisin flavoured tamarind sauce, a fiery chilli sauce and a turmeric and nigella raita. On the side we've got a smashed cucumber salad and a traditional Chinese stir-fried pepper and potato dish known as di san xian which we've freshened up in the style of an Indian chaat salad with lemon, tomato and coriander.

Fun in the sun! Brilliant recipe - everyone loved the main dish and the breads and the sides - though I think the favourite favourite was the amazing Di San Xian Chaat Salad. So glad I ordered two boxes so we can do this again!
