Chapati Roll /Kati roll (with White Chana)

I am here yet again with another easy, healthy and tasty recipe- chapati roll. This one is well balanced with the required amount of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Easy to prepare and eat for busy people and also for school going kids. Now enough of chit chats, let’s get straight to the recipe.
