Kati Roll

Kati roll is spicy mixture of veggies or meat ,topped with finely chopped fresh veggies, rolled in a chutney smeared flat bread(wrap). It is ideal for kids lunch box or on the go, which is a complete meal.Lot of variants in the stuffing can be made with veg and non-veg.The wrap can be made with whole wheat flour or all purpose flour.Today I used paneer for the stuffing and all purpose flour(maida) for the wrap.


For the wrap(outer layer)

Ingredient     Quantity
All purpose flour(maida) 2cups
Salt to taste
Water to knead
Oil(to cook) 3tbs

For the Filling

Ingredient     Quantity
Paneer(cubed) 300gms
Onion(chopped)1no.(medium size)
Tomato(chopped) 1no.(medium size)
Ginger&garlic paste1tsp
Chilly powder1tsp
Coriander powder1tsp
Turmeric powder1/2tsp
Garam masala powder a pinch
Chat masala1/2tsp
Kasoori methi1tsp
Cumin seeds1/2tsp
Coriander leaves(chopped)to garnish
Lemon juice2tsp
Saltto taste

For the Mint Chutney

Ingredient   Quantity
Mint leaves1 bunch
Coconut(grated) 2tbs
Green Chilly 3nos.
Lemon juice1tsp
Saltto taste

To garnish

Ingredient    Quantity
Onion(thinly sliced)1no.(small size)
Tomato(chopped) 1no.(medium size)
Green Chilly 3nos.
Baby Carrot(thinly sliced)1no.


               Knead the maida with oil and salt to a soft dough with water.Let it sit for 2-3 hours atleast, to get a soft outer layer.Grind all the ingredients given for chutney, together in a blender to a smooth paste.Slice the onion and tomato.

Heat oil in a pan,crackle cumin seeds, add the onion and saute it till it becomes soft.Then add the ginger&garlic paste follows the tomato,cook it until the tomato turns mushy.Now add in chilly powder.coriander powder and salt,saute it for a minute.

Add the cubed paneer and mix it well and keep it in a medium flame for couple of minutes.Finally add the Kasoori methi,chat masala,garam masala powder,coriander leaves,lemon juice and give a good mix.Turn off the stove.The stuffing is ready.

 Take a lemon sized dough ,roll into 8-9 inch diameter .Cook it in a griddle,both sides with a tsp of oil.Continue it for the rest of the dough.

 Take a roti(wrap),place it on a plate or clean countertop and smear it a with a spoonful of mint chutney.Keep a spoon full of stuffing and add top it with thiny sliced onion,tomato,carrot.

 Tuck in one side(as shown in the picture) and roll it tightly,as much as possible.The roll is ready.

 Heat the griddle with a tsp of oil ,arrange the rolls on the griddle and cook it for 2 minutes to get crispy(this step is purely optional).Take out from the griddle and wrap a foil or butter paper in the tucked end.

 Ready to enjoy.

Serve it warm.

  • The taste will be slightly different if the whole wheat flour is used for the wrap.
  • Tomato ketchup or hot & sour sauce can be drizzled on the top of the stuffing for an extra kick.
  • Store bought tortillas can be used.
  • Lemon juice,for the stuffing can be substituted  with amchur powder(dry mango powder).
