HOW TO MAKE paneer kathi roll

preparing paneer tikka marination

  • in a mixing bowl take all the ingredients for the marination, except paneer. 
  • mix very well. check the taste and add more salt if required. 
  • now add 200 grams paneer, which has been chopped in cubes.
  • gently mix and let the marination coat the paneer cubes evenly. cover and keep aside for 30 minutes. if keeping for more than 30 minutes, then refrigerate.

preparing green chutney

  • take all the ingredients for the green chutney in a grinder jar. 
  • add 1 teaspoon water (OPTIONAL) and grind coarsely. since the coriander and mint leaves are rinsed, the moisture from them helps in grinding.
  • then add 2 tablespoon hung yogurt or thick curd.
  • grind to a smooth chutney. remove in a bowl and keep aside. you can even refrigerate the chutney.

making veg salad for paneer kathi roll

  • thinly slice onion, grate carrots and shred the cabbage or thinly slice them. also thinly slice capsicum (bell pepper).
  • take all the veggies in a bowl. add 1 teaspoon chaat masala, 1 teaspoon lemon juice. also add salt as per taste.
  • mix very well and keep aside.

kneading dough to make the rolls

  • in a mixing bowl or pan or a large tray, take 1 cup atta (whole wheat flour), ½ tablespoon oil and salt.
  • then add ½ cup water in parts. first you can add ¼ cup water and add the remaining required amount of water later.
  • begin to knead. add water as required and knead to a smooth soft dough.
  • cover the dough and keep aside for it to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

making rotis for paneer kathi roll

  • after 20 to 30 minutes, divide the dough into small or medium sized balls. this depends on the size of the wraps you want to make. you can also make mini wraps.
  • dust the dough ball with some flour. then gently roll to thin roti. the roti should not be thick. if required while rolling, you can add some more flour.
  • place the roti on a hot tawa. cook the base till you see blisters appearing on the rotis or the roti is ¼th cooked. do note that the tawa should be hot. so cook on a medium-high to high flame. on a low flame, the rotis will become like papads.
  • then flip roti. spread some oil all over.
  • then flip again when the second side is ½ cooked.
  • spread some oil on this side too. you will see golden blisters on the roti.
  • flip once or twice more for even roasting. remove and keep the roti in a roti basket or in a warm casserole. prepare all rotis this way.

making paneer tikka for paneer roll

  • heat 2 tablespoons oil in a pan. keep the flame to low or medium-low and add the marinated paneer cubes. add the entire marination. since i had used hung yogurt, i added the entire marinated mixture as the hung yogurt marination had coated the paneer pieces very well. but if you have used yogurt which is thin, then just add the paneer cubes.
  • after a minute turn over the paneer cubes.
  • pan fry the paneer cubes turning often till the marination is cooked and the paneer becomes soft.
  • keep on stirring and turning them at intervals. also use a well seasoned pan or a non stick pan, so that the paneer cubes do not stick to the pan while frying.
  • i cooked the paneer for about 4 minutes on a medium-low flame. do not cook too much as then paneer will become dense, cook on medium-low flame. timing will vary with the thickness of the pan, intensity of the flame etc.
  • once the paneer is done, remove the pan from the flame and keep aside.

assembling and making paneer kathi roll

  • take one roti.
  • spread the mint-coriander-curd chutney over it.
  • now place the paneer tikka cubes in the center.
  • top with the veg salad.
  • roll both the sides of the roti and make a wrap.
  • wrap half portion of the rolls in butter paper or aluminium foil. if packing paneer roll for tiffin, then wrap the entire roll in aluminium foil and skip adding the green chutney and veggie salad.
  • serve paneer kathi roll with the remaining chutney or tomato ketchup. you can also add some of the veg salad as a garnish on the paneer roll.

  1. Hello! I have made this a few times now and everytime I turned out really good but just today it has turned out very spicy not because of chilli but I feel something else is too much. It has an unbearable spicy taste to it. Any suggestions what I can do?

  2. Hello auntie. How many rolls can you make with this amount of paneer? Looks really yummy I will try for school lunches. Thank you.

  5. Hi Dassana,
    this is by far the most delicious paneeer kathi roll I ever have…seriously amazing flavours…totally loved it and agree on ur statement that “it even beats the street side ones”. 😀

  6. Great recipe! This was several recipes in one. I had leftover paneer tikka, so these wraps were a healthy and creative way to use the leftovers.

  7. hi,
    Just want to say thank you for your lovely recipes, i have tried lot of your recipes and it has never failed because you give such accurate measurements!keep posting and your followers will enjoy cooking?The kathi roll was amazing ??

  8. Wow the flavors are incredible! This recipe is super easy to put together although it can be intimidating at first.

    Thank you for all the wonderful things you share with us.

  9. Hi Dassana.. u mentioned u don’t eat soy chunks..! Is that a contain or made of non vegetarian .. I mean it come under non veg or what? Coz v r Jain n m using it thinking as vegetarian.. Asking coz I just follow u..

    • pooni, soy chunks is vegetarian, but is highly processed. some years back i had read about how the processing & manufacturing is done to prepare soya chunks in india. it was a detailed article and the person writing had visited one of a well know soy chunks brand’s factory in indore. the final product is devoid of any nutrients. its just chemicals and preservatives that one is eating. so i do not use soy chunks or soy granules. previously i used to include them in my cooking.

      i checked for the article on his website but am not able to find it. looks like it has been deleted. some readers had asked me about soy bean chunks, so i wanted to share the article with them, but could not find it.

      in united states, i do not know how soy chunks are manufactured and processed. you can try searching on google and read articles on the manufacturing of soy chunks, if there are any. you will get some idea.

  10. Looks so delicious! My kids will for sure love these wraps. And clever way to make them eat veggies 🙂
