Preparing Green Chutney

  • Take all the ingredients for the green chutney in a grinder jar. 

  • Add 1 teaspoon water (optional) and grind coarsely. Since the coriander and mint leaves are rinsed, the moisture from them helps in grinding.

  • Thinly slice onion, grate carrots and shred the cabbage or thinly slice them. Also thinly slice capsicum (bell pepper).

  • Begin to knead. Add water as required and knead to a smooth soft dough.

  • Cover the dough and keep aside for it to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

Making Rotis For Paneer Roll

  • After 20 to 30 minutes, divide the dough into small or medium sized balls. This depends on the size of the wraps you want to make. You can also make mini wraps.

  • Dust the dough ball with some flour. Then gently roll to thin roti. The roti should not be thick. If required while rolling, you can add some more flour.

  • Place the roti on a hot tawa. Cook the base till you see blisters appearing on the rotis or the roti is ¼th cooked. Do note that the tawa should be hot. So cook on a medium-high to high flame. On a low flame, the rotis will become like papads.

  • Then flip roti. spread some oil all over.

  • Then flip again when the second side is ½ cooked.

  • Spread some oil on this side too. You will see golden blisters on the roti.

  • Flip once or twice more for even roasting. Remove and keep the roti in a roti basket or in a warm casserole. Prepare all rotis this way. Assembling And Making Paneer Roll

  • Take one roti.

  • Spread the mint-coriander-curd chutney over it.

  • Now place the paneer cubes in the center.

  • Top with the veg salad.

  • Roll both the sides of the roti and make a wrap.

  • Wrap half portion of the rolls in butter paper or aluminium foil. If packing paneer roll for tiffin, then wrap the entire roll in aluminium foil and skip adding the green chutney and veggie salad.

  • Serve paneer roll with the remaining chutney or tomato ketchup. You can also add some of the veg salad as a garnish on the paneer roll.
