Ingredients To Make Egg Paneer Kathi Roll:

  • 4 eggs
  • 200g paneer, grated
  • 4 large tortillas or chapatis
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 4 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons green chutney

Instructions to make egg paneer kathi roll:

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them well with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and gently scramble, creating soft curds. Set the scrambled eggs aside.
  3. Grate the paneer using the large holes of a box grater. This will create a delightful textural contrast in the roll.
  4. In the same pan used for the eggs, add another tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle in the red chili powder, cumin powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, and black pepper powder. Toast these spices for 30 seconds, releasing their fragrant magic.
  5. Add the chopped onion and green chilies to the pan, sauteing them until softened and translucent.
  6. Now, introduce the vibrant bell peppers and shredded cabbage, letting them cook for another 2-3 minutes. You want them softened but still retaining a slight crunch.
  7. Gently stir in the grated paneer, ensuring it gets coated with the aromatic spices and vegetables. Cook for another minute or two, allowing the flavors to mingle.
  8. Add the cooked scrambled eggs to the pan and mix everything together. Season with salt to taste. Turn off the heat and cover the pan to keep it warm.
  9. Heat a dry pan over medium heat. Warm each tortilla or chapati for about 30 seconds per side, making them pliable and slightly toasted.
  10. Spread a dollop of tomato ketchup and mayonnaise on each warmed tortilla.
  11. Add a generous portion of the spiced paneer and egg mixture, spreading it evenly.
  12. Sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander leaves for a burst of freshness.
  13. Carefully roll up the tortilla, tucking in the sides for a secure wrap. You can use toothpicks for extra security.
  14. Repeat steps 6-8 for the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  15. Cut each roll in half diagonally and serve hot with your favorite dip, like green chutney or raita. Enjoy the symphony of flavors in every bite – the fluffy eggs, savory paneer, vibrant vegetables, and the zing of spices!
Bonus Tips:

For a spicier roll, add additional green chilies or chili flakes.

You can substitute the tortillas with roti or paratha for a different texture.

Feel free to add other vegetables like carrots or spinach to the filling.

Leftover filling can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheated before assembling your rolls.
