Tasty, sumptuous and convenient to handle, the Jhatpat Aloo Roll is a wonderful dish to send in your kids’ tiffin box, as it stays fresh for at least 5 hours. While we have made it with fresh rotis you can also make use of leftover rotis to make these rolls, because they will regain enough moisture and flavour from the chutney lining and potato stuffing. The potato mixture is also quite unique in that it combines potatoes with bread for volume and an excellent texture. Not only that, the addition of chaat masala, chilli paste, lemon juice, etc., imparts a tongue-tickling flavour to the rolls, making them really irresistible to your kids. You can also alter this recipe to your kids’ liking by including or omitting ingredients like onions and ginger-garlic paste.
