Easy and simple chapati roll, with the stuffing of cottage cheese, mildly spiced and hinted with tomato ketchup is paneer roll. Paneer rolls can be of different types such as paneer tikka roll, paneer kathi roll, veg paneer roll, paneer cheese roll and many more. All these recipes are a bit of time –consuming and effort taking. I had to pack paneer rolls for my kids’ tiffin so I wanted something really quick to make. This paneer chapati roll calls for no special ingredients and is ready in less than 20 minutes. This paneer roll recipe makes for a perfect kids’ tiffin recipe as well as an easy lunch recipe.
Rolls are my daughters’ favorite when it comes to tiffin. Once a week, she loves to carry one or the other roll in her tiffin. Her favorite is aloo frankie. I also make soya keema roll, vegetable rolls for her tiffin. These are perfect for kids’ tiffin as the rolls are made with whole wheat flour and stuffed with something healthy yet appetizing. When rolled and packed, these become so fuss-free to carry and eat that kids simply love them.
To make paneer roll following are needed:
Simple Paratha: Here is the recipe to make simple paratha which I like to use for any roll or frankie recipe. These are cooked in very little oil and therefore are healthy. Further simple paratha remains moist and does not get dry. These can easily be rolled and packed with the stuffing.
Paneer: I have cut the paneer into long and thick strips. Use a good block of paneer for paneer roll so that you can get proper pieces of paneer.
Spices: Simple spices i.e. coriander powder, red chili powder, etc have been used to make paneer chapati rolls.
Spreads: Little ketchup is added to give a great taste and proper binding to the stuffing of the paneer rolls. Further green chutney is applied on the paratha. Make sure the consistency of the chutney used should not be runny or thin. Here is the recipe for a green chutney perfect for sandwiches and rolls.
Vegetables: Onion and capsicum compliment paneer very well. Therefore these have been used.
Just as rolls and frankie, sandwiches also are great for kids tiffin. Be it the sprinkle sandwich which is sure to delight the little ones or the no-cook Bombay veg sandwich or coleslaw sandwich which are quick to make and remain perfect in the tiffin. These and many more sandwich recipes here!
As already mentioned paneer rolls can be packed for kids’ tiffin. Further paneer rolls are perfect for weekday lunch too.
