Chicken stuffing:

Take a non-stick pan and melt butter. Take out the chicken cubes from the marinade and fry them with 1/2 cup sliced onion, till tender and cooked thoroughly.

Making paranthas (for roll) :

Sift the flour, add salt and oil and knead to form a soft dough. Divide the dough into small ball.( for making roti / chapatti).

Take a rolling board, and roll out a circular parantha (a little thicker than ordinary roti / chapati).

Heat tawa and place the parantha on the heated tawa. Cook one side then flip to cook the other side.

Pour 1 tsp oil on the tawa and coat the parantha with the oil. Keep aside.

Remove the fried parantha from tawa . Keep aside.

Assembling the roll:

Place the parantha on a serving plate and lay a portion of the cooked chicken pieces in a straight line in the middle of the parantha.

Place sliced onions, chopped green chillies on the chicken cubes, add tomato sauce and sprinkle chat masala. Finally squeeze the lemon on the chicken cubes.

Roll the parantha with the chicken stuffing firmly so that the chicken cubes do not fall.

Wrap the roll in a tissue paper and serve hot.............
