Vegetable Kathi Roll

These are also known as wraps or frankies. This is a perfect nutritious snack item for kids. There are different varieties of stuffing we can fill in these wraps like paneer or chicken stuffing. Adding paneer is an easy way to make a dish more festive. There are different variations in making this kathi roll in different parts of India.

It is said that, ‘kati’ is known as stick and the roti or flat bread is stuffed with tasty stuffings and rolled in the shape of  a cigar  that makes it easy to eat. These are versatile enough to be served at any time of the day.
I got the idea of making this when one of my friends suggested to make this as an evening snack for my little one and also after breaking the fast this will be a filling meal. So I thought why not I try this and here it is now in my blog. We can use any variety of sauces as a spread but as I didn’t have time, I added red chilli sauce (which was too spicy :-)) 

for chapathi:
  1. Wheat flour- 1cup
  2. Maida- ½ cup
  3. Oil- 1tbsp
  4. Salt- a pinch
  5. Water- required to knead
  6. Egg- 1no
  1. Mix all the ingredients (except egg) in a bowl and make a smooth dough by adding water.
  2. Let it rest till the stuffing is done. After some time make small balls with the dough.
  3. Roll them in the form of chapathis and put them on hot tava on slow flame.
  4. Mean while beat the egg and add salt and pepper. Keep it aside. When the chapathi is done on one side flip it and spread 1tsp of beaten egg on the roti and flip so that the egg gets cooked.
  5. Like this prepare all the rotis and keep it aside.
Ingredients for stuffing:
  1. Mixed Vegetables (carrots, capsicum, beans, cabbage all julienned)- 1cup
  2. Onions (sliced)- 1no
  3. Ginger and green chilli paste- 1tsp
  4. Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  5. Garam masala- 1tsp
  6. Cumin powder- 1tsp
  7. Salt- as required
  8. Lemon Juice- 1tbsp
  9. Oil- 1tbsp
  1. Heat oil and fry the onions till they turn golden brown in colour.
  2. Grind ginger and green chillies to paste and add this paste with fried onions and stir well.
  3. Add the julienned veggies and mix well till they become soft. In this add turmeric powder, garam masala powder, cumin powder and lemon juice. Mix till all the gets blended well. Keep it aside.

For assembling:
  1. Onions (sliced)- 1no
  2. Red chilli sauce / green chutney sauce- 1tbsp
  3. Chat Masala- 1tsp
  4. Coriander Leaves (chopped)- ½ cup
  1. Keep the egg coated side up on a neat platform and spread 2tbsps of the above made filling, top it with onions, then little red chilli paste / green cutney. Sprinkle little chat masala powder and chopped coriander leaves.
  2. Now roll this tightly in the form of a roll.
  3. To serve warp the roll in butter paper or tissue and enjoy the burst of spices.
  • If we want we can add the chat masala while making the filling. 
  • We can add grated cheese while assembling.
