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 few more delicious variations like:

in this veg frankie 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. 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.

    • thanks for the review and feedback ana.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Kudos to the whole team for such a wonderful presentation of the recipes. 🙂

    • Thanks Vishwas
