Roti Chicken Snack - Roti pockets

A wholesome snack ,this is also great for lunch boxes. The secret to making these crispy is to roll the flat bread very thin. If the flat bread is thick ,it may not cook properly and can turn to be a hard to chew.

For Homemade Roti [ Flat Bread ]
2 cups Whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon toasted Wheat Germ(optional)
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds(optional)

For the stuffing
2 cups of cooked shredded chicken
1 small onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon of cumin and coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 tablespoon of canola oil(or little more for shallow frying the pockets)


Step 1 Prepare the dough
Take a mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients mix them. Make a well in the middle of dry mixture pour in the water and oil. Mix until the dough is of right smooth consistency. knead for couple of minutes ,cover and let rest for about 10minutes before rolling.

Step 2 Make the stuffing
Add oil in pan ,heat on medium high.
Add the shred chicken ,spice mix and sauce. Stir fry for a minute. Turn off heat and cool completely.

Step 3 Rolling the Paratha
Divide the dough in to about 8-10 portions and roll in to balls. Sprinkle a little flour(I prefer All purpose flour) on the rolling surface. Use a rolling pin to roll them in to round thin flat bread(roti) about 6-8 inches in diameter

Step 4 Fold the Pockets
Spread about 2 tablespoon of cooked chicken mixture on each of the rotis. Fold once ,then close the open ends. 

Step 4 Pan Fry the pockets
Preheat a non stick pan at medium high flame. Add a tablespoon of canola oil. Shallow fry the pockets,2-3 at a time flip once after 2-3 minutes and let cook another 1-2 minutes until lightly brown on both sides. You can pack these in lunch boxes . To serve as snack ,slice in smaller pieces and serve with any yogurt dip.
