Stuck with extra rotis and don’t know what to do? Or tired of eating sabzi roti for a packed lunch? Here is an easy no fuss way to make Kathi rolls at home. I have deliberatedly omitted adding raw onions as a courtesy to a working lunch! but feel free to add them in the layers if you wish to!
Paneer Kathi Rolls (Serves 2)
Paneer 100 grams, cubed small
Onion 1 small, sliced
Tomato 1 small diced
Garam Masala Powder ½ teaspoon
Amchur Powder ¼ teaspoon
Coriander Powder ¼ teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil 1 teaspoon
Lemon Juice a few drops
For the Filling
Heat the oil and add the onions, fry them till they are translucent. Add the tomatoes and sauté for a few minutes till they begin to lose shape.
Add the red chilli, salt, amchur powder, garam masala and coriander powder and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the cubed paneer and cook covered for 4-5 minutes.
Make sure the paneer is not overcooked and is nice and fluffy. Add a few teaspoons of water if you would like, but it should not have a runny gravy.
Cool the filling mixture. Add the lemon juice and mix.
Spread out the chapathis on a work surface. Spoon over 2 tablespoons or more if needed of the paneer filling onto the chapathis and roll into a kathi roll. Fix it with a tootpick.
Lay out on a paper towel in the lunch box. Alternatively, wrap each kathi roll in foil and pack.
