Roti Cutlet | Leftover Roti Cutlet | Healthy Roti Kebabs


“Roti Cutlet” are a great way to finish off leftover rotis and a healthy snack for your kids as well. They are very easy to make and you can make a healthy version by baking or air frying them. If you want to make it for a party then you can deep fry them for extra crispness and color. They are delicious and you would like to make them often, if you make them once.

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 20 mins.
Cooking Time: 20 mins.


Watch on youtube:


2 medium sized potatoes (boiled, peeled and mashed)
3-4 chapatis/rotis (grind in mixer)
½ teaspoon red chilli powder
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
½ teaspoon garam masala
½ teaspoon roasted cumin powder
½ cup green peas (i used frozen)
2 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves (finely chopped, optional)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying (if frying)


  1. In a mixer jar, grind the leftover rotis to form a coarse powder.
  2. Boil the potatoes and peel and mash them.
  3. Allow the frozen peas to thaw.
  4. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl including the spices and green peas.
  5. Make small barrel shaped kebabs or the shape you like by taking small portion in your palm and pressing them to make a firm pattie.
  6. You can either deep fry the cutlets or bake them for a healthier version.
For Oven:
Preheat the oven at 210 degree celsius and place your kebabs/cutlets on the tray. Bake them               for 10 mins or until golden brown and flip them in between to cook evenly.
For deep frying:
Put some oil in a pan and heat it. Deep fry them by flipping over in between until golden brown on both sides.
  1. Serve hot with coriander chutney or regular tomato ketchup.


  • You can make these ahead of time and freeze them in ziploc bag. Just bake and tasty snack is ready in minutes.
  • I made the healthy version of these roti kebabs and made it in my microwave in air fryer mode. This helps skipping all the oil and made healthy snack.
  • In the video, I have made kebabs by deep frying to make it more clear for readers.
  • For parties, you can just deep fry if you want extra crispiness and more golden brown colour.
