Kati Egg Roll with Basmati & Quinoa

Hari says

Indian street food wouldn't be the same without the delicious Kati egg rolls found on the street corners on Mumbai. As kids my mum would make us roti's, an omlette and wrap the two together filled with whatever we were having for dinner that evening and they were delicious. This version is a quick cheat using tortilla wraps instead of roti.

A kati roll can be filled with spiced meats, vegetables cooked in a spicy masala, tangy salads and pickles. This is a slightly more substantial version filled with spiced rice and quinoa and if you want to, you can add my Punjabi Piyaz too!

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 100g Brown Basmati rice (or use left over rice)
  • 20g Quinoa 
  • 1 tbsp Rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 4 mushrooms, chopped
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 fresh green chilli, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • Handful of spinach
  • Large pinch of coriander
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp chaat masala

Egg roll per person

  • splash of oil
