Crispy Turkey Kathi Rolls with Mint-and-Date Dipping Sauce
Kathi rolls, a popular street food in India, are made by rolling vegetables or meat in roti, an Indian flat bread. In her fabulous take on the recipe, Padma Lakshmi wraps flour tortillas around a succulent filling of ground turkey, fresh ginger, curry and basil, then pan-fries the rolls until crispy for decadent hors d'oeuvres that can be eaten as finger food.Plus: More Appetizer Recipes and Tips
The fried rolls can be kept at room temperature for up to 2 hours. Reheat in the oven before serving.
Amchoor, dried mango powder, adds a distinctive tart flavor to foods. It's available at Indian markets and from kalustyans.com.
Dates, the basis for the sweet and spicy dipping sauce, have dark, jammy flavors that work better with a red wine than a white. Zinfandels often have a juicy richness that pairs well here.
