How to Make a Homemade Chiko Roll

Much similar to the Chinese spring roll and egg roll, Chiko roll belongs to Australian cuisine. It is basically designed to be eaten during travel, as it is a roll and does not need any fork, spoon or plate to eat with. It is a savory mixture of beef, cabbage, corn, carrot, barley, celery, green beans onion and spices, engulfed in a deep-fried tube of flour, dough and egg. Originally called Chinco roll, chiko rolls have now become one of the most widely sold out food items in Australia. In some parts, it has even become a cultural symbol of the country. So, if you are not going to buy it from a store, and want to make it on your own, then this oneHOWTO article is going to tell you how to make a homemade chiko roll.

Steps to follow:


To make a Chiko roll, first let's start with the pastry. Sift the bread flour in a medium sized bowl. Make a kind of well in its center and pour cold water and egg in it. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture well until it makes a smooth dough. Add more water if required. Keep kneading until the mixture becomes elastic. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator overnight.

You have bastardized this recipe by using lamb. The authentic chiko roll uses chicken pieces: hence the namw CHIKo roll. Your recipe should be named LAMBo roll!
