Vegetarians can omit chicken and follow the recipe ..for the coating you can dip in thin maida batter instead if egg whites and then roll in bread crumbs
This recipe is taken from my friend Hazeena blog Sauté fry n bake ….I did few changes to suit my family’s taste buds … She had posted the pic of chicken rolls and wrote that she makes them during Ramadan and they freeze well and can be fried when required … The best part of these rolls is that we can go easy on the filling , add any filling of our choice ….I made filling with vegetables and chicken but made few with minced meat and cheese filling and both tasted equally good ….one more thing that I liked about these rolls were that they were very filling and you can’t eat more than two ….
As I made the pancake , kids wanted me to keep few separate for them to spread Nutella and eat … These rolls were liked by everyone , especially my sis Seema , who normally doesn’t prefer fried things told that the rolls tasted good even when they were cold.
These rolls get fried within few minutes and you can add any type of filling that your family likes and make in bulk and freeze them.
