Chicken Egg Roll with a video

When it comes to preparation of chicken egg roll am always on my toes and you won't believe that it can be do in less than 40 minutes(kneading, Filling preparation,rolling and cooking the egg roll).
Ranchi and Bokaro street vendors prepares some of the Best chicken rolls. However i was really disappointed with the egg rolls that i had in Bangalore at several places.
There is way to prepare this and therefore i shot a video of the final assembling of everything.
I have learnt how to do this by watching the street vendors as they prepared it. Being raised in a vegetarian family i always prepared the veg roll adding soy granules instead of chicken chunks and it was also good. But as soon as i got married and came to Hyderabad i tried doing some hands on with the chicken roll. I surprised my hubby by presenting him an excellent one and since then he knew that i could cook few of the awesome mouthwatering snacks.
So friends here is my favorite roll recipe and i know like me there are many of you who love it too. So i dedicate this recipe of mine to all my friends of Ranchi and Rourkela.
