Egg Kathi Roll with Paneer Stuffing

HD suggested this. One day he just ordered a dozen eggs and suggested we should have kathi rolls for dinner. He went on to describe in detail how to make them. It was so cute the way the request was made. So I got out my kitchen tools, did some shopping and just made them along with green chutney and the works. I will have to say it tasted pretty good. Eggs rule. No question about it.

You need to prepare five things to put this dish together. First is the tortilla (roti/wrap), paneer stuffing, green chutney, lemons cut in half and deseeded and the eggs.



1 cup plain flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp corn flour

1 tbsp ghee

Ghee for cooking


Egg mixture

2 eggs

Salt and red chili powder to taste


Paneer Stuffing

1 onion

1 capsicum

1 cup paneer cubes

1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1/2 tsp turmeric (haldi)

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsp tamarind paste

1 tbsp green chili sauce (optional)

Chat masala

2 tbsp oil


Mix flour, soda, corn flour and ghee and make a smooth batter with water. Cover with wet muslin cloth and leave for 1 hour. Knead the dough once more. Make 4 balls out of it. Roll them and cook them with ghee.

Beat the eggs with salt and red chili powder. Spread some of it on a non-stick pan in a circular shape the size of the tortilla. Immediately place the tortilla over it. Remove from gas one the egg has browned well.

Cut the onion and capsicum into cubes. Heat oil in a pan and saucte the onion and capscum cubes in it. Add the paneer cubes, tamarind paste and spices. Cook for 5 mins.



Place the tortilla egg side up on a plate. Place some paneer stuffing on it right along the centre. Spread green chutney on top and squeeze some lemon juice on it. Roll the tortilla and stick a toothpick t hold it together. Alternatively, it can be wrapped in parchment paper also.
