palak paneer kathi roll recipe

wraps and rolls are popular with kids and youngsters. there are various ways one can prepare a vegetarian wrap or a roll by adding various stuffings and fillings. i usually get a lot of recipe requests and wraps or rolls are one of the recipe type, that has been requested by many readers. thus i will be adding some more wraps recipes. few wrap recipes i have already shared are:

  1. frankie recipe
  2. paneer kathi roll 
  3. veg kathi roll recipe.

the recipe shared here is a simple yet delicious paneer palak bhurji stuffed in a roti wrap along with onions & cheese. of course, if you do not have time, you can just make the paneer bhurji and serve it with rotis. for the rolls or wraps, i have used atta (whole wheat flour). though if you want, you can also use half-half of atta and maida (all purpose flour).

in the palak paneer bhurji i have added tomatoes. so there is some moisture due to the tomatoes and the bhurji is not dry. if you want you can skip tomatoes. instead of paneer, you can use also tofu. preparing rolls or wraps does take time. so to cut down on the time, you can knead the roti dough overnight and refrigerate it. then next day you can easily prepare palak paneer bhurji and then prepare the wraps.

you can serve the kathi rolls plain or accompany it with some coriander chutney if you want.
