Paneer Kathi Rolls (Cottage Cheeze Frankies)

11/13/2009 06:22:00 PM

If you are bored of eating Chapathi everyday then these rolls are a healthy version of frankies and make a complete meal by themselves. Usually chapatis are made with whole wheat flour which is a good source of iron and fibre as compared to the usual plain flour (maida) rotis.

The paneer and vegetable filling enriches these rolls with essential vitamins and minerals and the calcium packed marinade adds that extra 'zing' to this recipe.

Cooking Time : 20 mins.
Preparation Time : 15 mins.

Makes 9 rolls.

¼ teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)

How to proceed
