The filling

Heat oil in a pan and fry the chopped onions, garlic and the curry leaves till the onions softens. Add in the minced chicken, followed by all the spices and the chopped tomato. Once the meat has cooked add in a handful of fresh coriander to add a bit of freshness. Lastly stir in the mashed/cubed potato. Lastly taste for seasoning and round off the flavors with a squeeze of lemon juice

To form the roll

Heat a non-pan under medium heat and ladle in a spoonful of the crêpe mixture in and swirl it around the same way you would to make an omelet. Cover immediately with a lid and let it cook. Remove the crêpe from the pan, into a plate and immediately place a spoonful of the minced beef filling towards the end of the crêpe – in an elongated shape. Bring two sides of the crêpe towards the center and start rolling to form a ‘roll’ shape. Seal the edges with egg wash.

For the crumb coating, simply beat an egg or two with 2 spoons of flour and some water to make a thick batter, now, dip a roll in the flour and egg mixture and transfer it to the breadcrumbs to coat it well. Lastly, heat up Fortune coconut oil in a pan and deep fry the crumbed rolls till they are golden, crunchy and delicious!
