'Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Man oh man...its soooo cold!!! I mean with wind chill factor it feels like -2 degrees right now! I mean I know I was missing winter..but geez it’s too cold to even sit near a window. BRRR. But instead of sitting indoors all weekend, I decided to endure the cold and get a little retail therapy. Ms. Pai and I went to tysons corner, got a hearty meal and then we got down to business. On sat night, Hubby dear and I met with some JHU friends at Play for some drinking and dancing. The big negative of the night…paying $30 to get in! and the place was wayyy to crowded. All in all…both of us have decided never to go back to Play. The positive…we both had a great buzz going and then we got PRINCE! YUMMS!
And I got SOME time on the dance floor. Super bowl Sunday we went to my mama’s house for pizza and beer. My lil cousins and I made plans to watch “The sisterhood of traveling pants” a very cute coming of age movie. And oh yea the colts won….I don’t know much, but I know that Hubby was rooting for them and their winning put a big cheesy smile on his face…or maybe that was the beer. Regardless, we had a fun super bowl Sunday. Let’s wind back to Friday so I can share my kati roll recipe with you folks! Yep another recipe that put a smile on hubbys face. I combine part of Nupur's recipe and my moms chutney recipe to make these similar to the NYC style kati rolls.

Ingredients for the wrap:
4 wheat tortillas
2 eggs

Ingredients for the filling:
1 red pepper
2 small onions
1 cup of cooked pre cooked chicken (got from Costco)
2 tsp chaat masala
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Ingredients for the chutney:
½ bunch mint
½ bunch of cilantro
juice of two lemons
½ small red onion
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
¼ cup of water
2 tsp garlic & ginger paste
2 small green chilies chopped

To make the chutney:
Take all the ingredients that I have listed for the chutney except the water and make a paste in the blender. Add the water and once it starts to have a chutney like consistency, the chutney is ready.

To make the filling:
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Fry the pepper and chicken till browned and crispy.
Remove pan from heat. To the pepper and chicken, add the chopped onion, lemon juice, chaat masala, red chilli powder, salt, pepper and mix well.

To make the wrap:
Beat the eggs with some salt and pepper and set aside
Heat a tortilla in a non-stick pan
Ladle some egg on the tortilla and spread on only one side of the tortilla.
Overturn the tortilla to cook the egg
Remove from pan
With the eggy side of the tortilla facing upwards, ladle the chutney all around the tortilla
Position the filling in the center of the tortilla and roll like a burrito.

This amount in this recipe makes 4 kati rolls. For those who are vegetarian, you can replace the chicken with 2 boiled potatoes. You can do without the eggs too but the authentic kati roll places including the famous Kati roll in NYC uses eggs on their parathas/tortillas.

Until the next blather…Stay Warm.
