Aloo Paneer Kathi Roll

An all-in-one tasty dish is the Kolkata special kathi roll. Kathi rolls are wholesome, filling and delicious at the same time. Kathi rolls generally have some type of kebab and kathi rolls have evolved over the years. This aloo paneer kathi roll is perfect for lunch or dinner.
Kathi rolls are best for on the go, they really do pack a punch. Very flavoursome and the pudina chutney in this aloo paneer kathi roll makes all the difference. Soft paneer pieces in a chatpata aloo sabzi. Lemon juice and chaat masala adds all the tanginess along with the pudina chutney.

The filling is rolled into a roti or flatbread with other fixins like onions, sliced capsicum (bell pepper). After the chutney is smeared and the filling is added it is finished off with some cool yogurt and chopped coriander. Here I have made whole wheat rotis to make the rolls.
This is perfect for picnics or for packed lunch and is kid friendly. Just adjust the chutney and spiciness when serving kids. You can make kathi rolls with different types of fillings. More for another time. Try other snack recipes, kid friendly recipes from FOI. This hummus veggie wrap is one of my favourites too.
