Delicious wraps or rolls stuffed with a spiced potato and paneer stuffing. These vegetarian kathi roll make for a good brunch, lunch or tiffin box. A chatpata snack that is filling and easy to make.
Kathi roll is a dish I learnt back in college. As part of our Foods and Nutrition curriculum, we learnt to prepare a lots of dishes during practicals, every week. One of those dishes was Kathi Roll. Ever since I made it at college, I have been a fan of it. In fact, even my family loved it the first time I made it for them. If I remember correctly, this was in fact one of the first dishes I taught my mom to make. It was quite a role reversal! Even though sometimes she would suggest on tweaking the recipe a bit, I would insist that we stick to my college recipe as I didn’t want to experiment with the taste. I was so naive back then! I thrive on such things today and love to experiment with food to create new and exciting recipes but back then I think I was quite traditional and scared to try something different.
Thankfully that changed and here I am ready to tweak my age old college recipe to create a somewhat new dish altogether. Kathi roll is a popular wrap mostly categorized as street food. In fact, there is a Kathi Roll joint in New York city where you get the best varieties of kathi roll in the business. If you visit, do check that place out. The original recipe that I have requires only potatoes to make the filling for this wrap, however I wanted to make it more protein dense and decided to add paneer as well along with carrots. Here is what I did. In a bowl, add boiled potatoes, carrotsamchur powder, chaat masala, coriander cumin powder, grated paneer, chopped onions, minced green chillies, grated ginger, chopped cilantro and salt.
Mix and mash it all together. The stuffing is ready. You can use roti or tortillas for wraps. I used roti. Cook the roti properly and smear it with green chutney once done. Place a portion of the paneer potato stuffing in the center, sprinkle chaat masala and roll it to make a wrap. You can also add some grated cheese over it before wrapping it close for more additional flavor.
Potato Paneer Kathi Roll/Wrap is ready to be served. Prepare as many as you need/want and then sit to eat – This is a personal tip! You can enjoy them with ketchup or some green chutney. KR likes to sprinkle some sev in the stuffing and even I have gotten used to that and prefer it for myself. Living together, we tend to like and adapt to each other’s quirks like these. This kathi roll is very filling and eating more than two is pure indulgence.
