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.

Ingredients

Tortilla

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.

 

Assemble

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.

7 ways to make an omelet

7 ways to make an omelet

1.   Basic omelet – Beat the eggs together. Add salt and pepper. Heat a spoonful of oil in a pan and spread the egg mix on it. Flip the omelet once it is brown and let it cook for a minute.

 

2.   Onion omelet – Beat the eggs together. Add salt and pepper. Add finely chopped onion. Cook it in the pan as before.

 

3.   Variation of onion omelet – Instead of onions, you can add finely chopped tomatoes to the egg mix or you can mix both onions and tomatoes too.

 

4.   Veggie omelet – Chop finely some cabbage, carrots, onions and tomatoes and fry it in a pan. Mix this with the eggs and beat it together. Then make the omelet.

 

5.   Masala omelet – Beat the eggs together and add salt and pepper in it. Heat a spoonful of oil in a pan and spread the egg mix on it. Once the underside is brown, put fried cheese and veggie mixture on it and fold the omelet three ways to make a triangle.

 

6.   Healthy omelet – Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Beat the egg whites together and add minimal salt and pepper. Prepare the omelet as a basic omelet in a pan. The removal of egg yolk reduces the fat content and leaves only proteins behind making this a very healthy preparation.

 

7.   Sunny side up/down – Heat a spoonful of oil in a pan. Break the egg directly on the pan. Let the egg white coagulate and take it off once the underside is brown. This omelet is called sunny side up as the appearance is of a sun against a white background. If you do not wish to eat a runny yolk, just flip the omelet and let it cook for a minute before taking if off the pan. This omelet is called sunny side down.
