Making stuffed paneer rolls is easy and involves three steps, 1) make spicy filling, 2) make chapati for wrap and 3) combine filling and chapati into roll.

Paneer Wrap

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 2 servings (4 rolls)
Ingredients For Chapati:
3/4 cup + 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour or Maida (all purpose flour)
2 teaspoons Oil
Ingredients For Roll Filling:
1 cup crumbled or grated Paneer
2 tablespoons finely chopped Coriander Leaves
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1 Green Chilli, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Ginger-Garlic Paste
1/2 teaspoon Cumin Seeds
1/4 teaspoon Garam Masala Powder
1/2 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
2 teaspoons Tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon Oil
Ingredients For Roll:
2 Cheese Cubes, grated (optional)
1 Cup chopped Lettuce or Shredded Cabbage
4 teaspoons Green Chutney
Oil for shallow frying

Method for Making Chapati Wrap:

  1. step-1
    Take 3/4 cup wheat flour, 2 teaspoons oil and salt in a bowl. Add milk as needed and knead smooth dough similar to chapati or paratha dough.
  2. step-2
    Cover the dough and rest it for 10-15 minutes. After 15 minutes, knead the dough again and divide it into 4 equal portions. Give ecah portion a shape of ball. Take 1/4 cup dry wheat flour in a plate for dusting. Coat each ball with dry wheat flour and roll it out on roti making board into a thin circular chapati or paratha having approx 5-6 inch diameter.
  3. step-3
    Heat the tava over medium flame. When it is hot, place rolled chapati on it and cook until light brown spots appear on both sides.
  4. step-4
    Trasfer it to a plate and cover with a lid to avoid drying (or put it in a roti container). Do the same process for remaining dough balls. Make sure that chapati wrap is not over cooked, as it will be re-heated again at the time of making rolls.

Method for Making Crumbled Paneer Filling:

  1. step-5
    Heat 1-teaspoon oil in a small pan over low flame. Add cumin seeds; when they start to crackle, add finely chopped onion and sauté until it turns light brown. Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds.
  2. step-6
    Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, tomato ketch up, coriander leaves and green chilli; mix well.
  3. step-7
    Turn off the flame. Add crumbled paneer and salt to taste, mix well. Filling for roll is ready; divide it into 4 equal portions.

Method for Making Paneer Rolls:

  1. At the time of serving, heat tava on medium flame and place previously cooked chaapti over it. Spread 1/2 teaspoon oil on both sides and cook for 20-30 seconds on each side.
  2. step-8
    Take re heated chapati in a plate and spread 1-teaspoon (or to taste) green chutney evenly over it. Put one portion of filling in the center and spread it lengthwise. Sprinkle 1-2 teaspoons grated cheese and 1/4 cup chopped lettuce over it. Wrap chapati tightly around stuffing to make a long cylindrical roll.
  3. l_step
    Serve them with tomato and chilli chutney and tomato basil salad.
Tips and Variations:

  • You can prepare stuffing and chapati in advance. However, assemble them into rolls only when you are ready for serving. It tastes best when served hot.
  • Use readymade tortillas or rumali roti instead of preparing fresh chapati to make spicy paneer wraps quickly.
  • Spread 1-teaspoon mint chutney instead of green chutney on topside of wrap before placing crumbled paneer stuffing on it. Also, sprinkle some chat masala for extra zing.
  • To make it healthier, add chopped veggies like tomato, onion and lettuce.
  • If you are a cheese lover or making paneer rolls for kids, then sprinkle shredded cheese over stuffing for extra cheesy taste.
Taste: Spicy, soft and hearty
Serving Ideas: It is a delicious dish that tastes exceptionally well with green chutney. Serve it as a healthy snack for kids or pack a few when you are in hurry and have it on the go.

Is lettuce or cabbage absolute necessity? Can they be omitted and still taste just as good?
