Raja Kebab | How to make stuffed Papad Rolls

Raja Kebab

Raja Kebab is a stuffed paneer potato filling in a papad that is deep fried and served in bite sized pieces. These make a fantastic party starter and delicious evening snack.

When I wanted to make Awadhi Thali or the Mixed North Indian Thali, Vaishali suggested this Raja Kebab that was her restaurant. This is a stuffed papad with a filling of spiced paneer potato mix. Handling the water soaked papad and then deep frying it is an awesome dish.

I was planning on all other dishes and completely forgot that I didn’t have the papads stocked. There was a time when I used to regularly buy the papads but after a while, we stopped having them and I no longer buy.

So when Amma went shopping I told her that I need some papads. When she asked small or large, I assumed the quantity and said small. Only after getting it I realised I need the larger ones. I had to make a last minute shopping to pick up the larger papads.

I made some for the thali and rest I saved for my colleagues. Everybody enjoyed and said this was really restaurant special!

We are doing the BM#88, Week 2 and I am sharing some Bite Sized Food for Kids!

  1. WOW! this is definitely a treat for all vegetarians! Iv never heard of anyone making a stuffing inside papads:) gotta try this one! very fancy valli!

  2. As soon as I started reading your post, I asked Sruiti whether we have papad at home. Unfortunately only smaller ones and that too broken. Hmm, I have to wait for our next shopping. These stuffed papads look amazing and I am bookmarking this to try asap.

  3. Raja kebab looks seriously very royal and interesting. Though handling papads is not an easy job, u did justice with your cooking skills Valli. Awesome papad rolls.

  4. Love this Valli. This is also called as bharwan papad and nice to know it has another royal name. They have come out so well. 🙂

  5. Perfectly made raja kebabs. I once tried stuffing papad and frying them but failed as I was not able to control how long to soak the papad.. some cracked some became too soggy.

  6. This looks absolutely amazing….have never heard of papad stuffings. Such a beautiful Indian version of the rice paper roll…am trying this in the weekend. Yum yum
