Roti Cutlet or Chapati cutlet recipe with video: crispy chapati cutlets made with roti or chapati and veggies. Healthy chapati cutlets or roti cutlets made with left over roti, chapati or tortillas and a full meal in it self.

Roti cutlets or Chapati cutlets sound very different. Isn’t it? My seven year boy always complain that eating chapati everyday is so boring. “Mom can you make some thing else”? So I thought why not make something interesting with these chapatis itself. These cutlets have chapati and lots veggies that make them like complete meal in itself like having chapati with veggies. Also good mix of vegetables makes it healthy and nutritious.  My son loves these roti cutlets, so it is win win for both of us :) .

Making these roti cutlets or chapati cutlets is very simple. First break the chapati or roti in small pieces and grind them to grainy mixture (we do not want thin powder). You can use your fresh or even leftover roti, tortilla, parathas in this roti cutlet recipe. Today I used grated carrots primarily, but you can use any combination of veggies like spinach, beans, capsicum, cabbage or what your kids love to eat. Make sure to chop veggies very fine so that they completely gel together with other ingredients of roti cutlets and also it helps in shaping the cutlets without cracks.

Add all the ingredients together. Shape these yummy cutlets to whatever shape you like and shallow fry them in little oil. Serve crispy roti or chapati cutlets with your favorite dip.

In this roti cutlet recipe I rolled the cutlets in semolina which makes cutlets very crispy; you can also use bread crumbs as a substitute of soji or rawa.

To make sandwich with roti cutlets take two pieces of lightly toasted bread. Apply your favorite spread on the bread (I used mayonnaise as it is my son’s favorite). Put some salad leaves and roti cutlets. Cover it with other piece of bread, gently press it and cut in two pieces. Pack them for your kid’s tiffin box or give them as after school snack. It’s complete meal in itself. Talking about tiffin box you can also try egg paratha roll, baked bread rolls, vegetable pulao, spring rolls, mix veg paratha.

I also modified the recipe further and added left over rice in stead of boiled potatoes for binding and used Maggie seasoning as the taste enhancer. Turned out great and my family enjoyed these tikkis . do share other such tasty stuff .
