kathi roll, veg kathi roll recipe

veg kathi rolls and some more variations of wraps have been requested by some readers. so i am sharing these recipes. preparing kathi rolls from scratch takes time. if you have the atta dough ready, then these are more quick to prepare. i am sharing a simple recipe but very tasty. i have already shared two more delicious variations like:

in this veg kathi rolls recipe, i have used whole wheat dough to make the rolls. the stuffing is made with mix veggies like cauliflower, green peas, carrots, french beans, capsicum and potatoes. i have also added paneer, though you can skip it if you want. you can also use tofu or extra firm silken tofu instead.

do prepare the veg stuffing first. then prepare rotis and place them in a roti basket or casserole. if preparing for tiffin, then wrap rotis in foil, paper towels or butter paper.

serve veg kathi roll plain or with some chutney or raita.

  1. Tried this recipe and it was awesome. Received appreciation from my family. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe mam

  2. Whatever recipe I try at home, I search in veg recipes of India only because the presentation will be in such a detailed way that author exactly knows where we beginners make mistake while trying the recipe. I almost learned all special dishes with this. There is a saying in kannada ‘varna mathram kalisidaatham guru’. The person who teaches single letter also becomes our guru.. Thank you Dasanna..

    • thank you dr sunayana k 🙏

      i loved the kannada phrase and it is so true in our everyday life as well. thanks for sharing this rare gem of knowledge. pleased and happy. thanks again.

  3. Thank you! It was perfect! Loved it and will be doing this again 🙂 i only made the roll for now, filled it with butter chicken… next time i will try some vegetables as well.

  4. Hi dasanna
    Just had a small query about the frankie. Will it not get soggy by 12:30pm when prepared by around 7am for children’s tiffin…

    • deepa i have already replied to your query. due to web cache the replies are not seen. if you refresh the browser then you can see my reply. since the sabzi filling is dry you can easily place it in the rolls. place the filling when its warm or at room temperature. also do not add onions as onions will release their juices and make the rolls moist and soggy.

  5. Hi Dasanna
    Just had a small query. If i prepare the roll at 7:00 in the morning won’t it become soggy by 12:30 (my kids lunch time)?
    Plz help

    Thanx.

    • skip onions and the chapatis rolls won’t be soggy. the vegetable stuffing is almost dry so from it there won’t be any sogginess. also place the veg stuffing once it becomes lukewarm. if you place in the roll when its hot and then fold, due to condensation from heat, the rolls will become moist and slightly soggy.

  6. You have the loveliest blog ever!!Whenever I’m confused about any recipe U r there to help me out. I made this today for my uncle and aunt and they loved it! All thanks to you… keep posting such wonderful recipes n btw u r an awesome photographer along with being a chef.. love ur pics too… Thank you so much.

  7. I love all your recipes. But the process is too lengthy and a little cumbersome. You may consider re-formatting your presentation. I applaud your eye for detail though. Please disregard this feedback if irrelevant.
    A well wisher
    Warm regards

    • thanks kannan for the suggestion. i give the recipe in detail so that anyone can prepare the recipe. sometimes to a few tips here and there help to know about the right texture or consistency or color in the recipe. initially when i started i would keep everything short and simple, but i used to get many queries on these short and simple recipes. so i started writing in detail, so that its helpful even for a newbie to make a recipe.

  8. Loved the above rolls..I am a novice in cooking but Ur instructions were soo good n clear..came out soo well.. thank u soo much

  9. Hi Dassana I made these today and they turned out very delicious. The only change I did was I added some green chillies while pounding ginger and garlic. The thing that draws me to your site is that your recipes can be made with easily available spices, your presentation of the recipes is simply adorable and always the dish becomes success. May God always bless you for the wonderful work you are doing. Thanks a lot.

    • thank you amita for the feedback on the recipe. green chilies can be added. i skipped green chilies to make these kathi rolls kid friendly.

      also thanks for your lovely comment and kind wishes.

  10. Hi, I made these yesterday and they turned out to be excellent. I have been following your recipes for while now and they have never let me down. Thank you for sharing them with us.
    Regards

  11. Dear Author,

    What is the approximate servings with your measurements? I know it varies according to the size of chapatti but i am just interested in approximate serving.

    Thanks,
    Afoodlover

    • thanks. i had updated the servings, but looks like it has not got updated. its about 10 to 12 kathi rolls. it will depends on the size of the roti or chapati. i made large chapatis, so for this size, it will be 10 kathi rolls.
