  • Two hundred (200) grams of chicken (I prefer with bones, but you could use boneless too if you like)
  • One (1) tablespoon of oil
  • Two to three (2-3) fresh green chilies- chopped up
  • One (1) tablespoon butter (softened or melted)
  • Half (1/2) an onion- chopped up
  • One to two (1-2) tablespoons of Maida (flour)
  • One-fourth (1/4) cup of milk
  • One (1) slice of fresh bread- to get fresh crumbs, grind this bread slice
  • One-fourth (1/4) tablespoon of red chili flakes
  • Half (1/2) tablespoon of salt or to taste
  • One-fourth (1/4) tablespoon of pepper, or just a pinch
  • One (1) egg- separate
  • Two (2) tablespoons of egg white for coating

For the coating:

  • One-fourth (1/4) cup of Maida (flour)
  • One (1) tablespoon of oil
  • Two (2) tablespoons of water mixed with two (2) tablespoons of the egg white that we kept separately
  • Mayonnaise (at the time of serving the dish)


  • Take the chicken pieces and wash them well. Now place the chicken in a dish and coat the pieces well with oil.
  • Microwave the chicken pieces for four to five (4-5) minutes (covered).
  • Now take the soft pieces of chicken and finely shred them into tiny little pieces. (In case you are using chicken with bones, discard the bones).
  • Next, mix the finely chopped onions, softened butter, Maida (flour) and chilies in a dish. Mix these ingredients well and microwave for one (1) minute.
  • Now, to this dish, add the milk and microwave (uncovered) again, after mixing, for one (1) minute.
  • Next add the rest of the ingredients, mix everything nicely and make shapes like rolls.
  • Now take this roll and dip it in the egg mixture. Once done, roll these in the Maida (flour) to bind it well.
  • Grease a non stick pan or tawa with some oil or butter. Place the rolls carefully in it.
  • Put the tawa or pan on high rack and then grill for about eight to ten (8-10) minutes.
  • Change the sides and then grill again on the other side for about four to five (4-5) minutes.
  • Keep checking. The rolls should turn a golden brown color.
  • Once done, serve hot with a topping of mayonnaise.
