Hot n' Spicy Chicken roll!

I have always luvd snacks, and am sure thats normal! Each of us forget about calories when its snack time right?! Now this one is an all time favourite snack; one of kids' fav too!

To make chicken rolls, we require

Maida / All Purpose flour : 1 cup
Dry yeast : 1 1/4 tspn
Egg : 1 no.
Butter : 1 tspn
Bread crumps : as much to roll the chicken rolls
Sugar : 1 1/2 tbspn
Salt : 1/4 tspn
Milk : 1 tbspn

All the above ingredients are for making the dough.

For the filling, take

Minced boneless chicken (cooked with a little turmeric and salt) : 250g
Onion : a big one finely sliced
Turmeric powder : 1/2 tspn
Red chilly powder: 1 tspn
Pepper powder : a little based on ur preferences
Garlic : 5 pods
Ginger : 1 very small piece
Green chilly : 2 nos.
Coriander leaves : 1 sprig
Garam masala : 1/4 tspn
Oil : 5 tbspn

Firstly, take a bowl; add 1/2 an egg, sugar, salt and butter and mix thoroughly using an egg beater or manually beat until foam arise. Then put maida / all purpose flour into it. Add yeast melted in water or milk and mix them well. Now, make a firm dough as we would for chappathi or roti; add milk and butter as required to get a smooth n soft dough, without lumps. Cover it using a wet muslin / cotton cloth and keep aside for an hour or more. The more u keep, the more it rises.

Meanwhile, take a kadai and pour 1 tbspn oil onto it. When it gets heated, add chopped ginger, garlic and green chilly and saute until the raw smell subsides. Then add finely sliced onion and saute with a little amount of turmeric powder and salt until it turns slightly brownish. Add red chilly powder and saute well. Add minced chicken and add a little amount of water for the content to get cooked. Add a little pepper powder if u r towards the spicier side. Add garam masala. Close the lid and cook in low flame for 3 minutes. Now, add the chopped coriander leaves and mix very well. Now, the filling is done. See to it that the filling is dry.

Now, make small balls out of the dough and roll it to the size of a chappathi. Grease it with butter and add the filling to one side of the same and roll towards the other end. Paste both sides with a little amount of water so that it doesn't open up while frying. Dip each of these rolls in the remaining beaten egg, then rolled in bread crumbs.

Take a frying pan and pour the remaining oil for deep frying. Once it gets really hot, dip each of the rolls into the oil in high flame and fry until golden brown. And now..... serve hot with tomato sauce!
