Vaquas: Hey everyone! I'm back after a long with a brand new recipe with something unique for you guys. It's Paneer Masala Kati Roll recipe. I don't know about Pakistan, but in India they are quite popular. I used to have it every day after school from a food cart. However, when I moved aboard I started to have the urge to have kati roll. Well, it wasn't easily available so I decided to create this recipe to satisfy my craving of a real kati roll from Dehli.
As I mentioned in a pervious post that paneer is my first love. One shouldn't mistaken paneer for cottage cheese. While cottage cheese is made out of heavy whipping cream, but paneer is made of pure milk. Paneer is not salted so one can be very generous with the salt when using paneer as an ingredient.
Paneer Masala Kati Rolls are basically Paneer infused with spices wrapped in a paratha. If you want a lighter version of a kati roll you can easily use homemade whole wheat chapatis. kati rolls include some chutney. I like green chutney in my kati roll, that I linked. The assembly of a kati roll is pretty easy. Once you make the mixture just spread the green chutney on the paratha or chapati, and just put the green mixture in. The paneer masala takes 2 hours to marinate but I personally love marinating it overnight.
This recipe is perfect for side at a party. I love the fact that I can bring you original street food from India to your party or your dinner table. Your guests will be impressed by this unique dish.
