Paneer Achari Kati Roll


(click image for enlarged view)

Kati roll is a street-food originating from Kolkata, India. Originally kati means stick in bengali and kababs very prepared on the stick and then the kababs were used as a stuffing within the paratha and the generic name of Kati Kabab or Kati Roll got stuck with it. The street vendors have a lot of variations with diffent fillings and sauces.

For my version of kati roll I used paneer, bell pepper, onion blended with minimum spices and flavored with pickle for the stuffing. This is a very simple version which can be prepared very quick and easily. For the masala I used crushed coriander and cumin which gives it a unique flavor and the magic ingredient is the pickle (achar) found in every indian home.

Ingredients
  • 6 roti ( I used some rotis which are in fridge)
  • 1 cup diced paneer (cottage cheese)
  • 3/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup sliced onion
  • 3/4 cup tomato
  • 1 tsp kasuri methi
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pickle paste (I used mango pickle/achar)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
  • sliced onion for serving

Cooking Procedure

Make a coarse powder of coriander and cumin seeds.

Heat oil in a pan add the onions and saute for 1 min, then add bell pepper and stir.Add the salt and fry a little more and bell pepper should be slightly cruchy. Add tomato and saute for 1 min, now add the crushed coriander and cumin seed powder and fry. Then add paneer cubes and kasuri methi, blend the paneer nicely with the spices.Stir for 1 min, then add the pickle paste and mix nicely and fry for 30 seconds and remove.

Making the kati roll

Warm the roti on a tawa/skillet.Take 2 tbsp of stuffing and place it in the roti lengthwise in the center, sprinkle some onion slices and roll it . Wrap the bottom with a silver wrap and fold the end and serve hot and enjoy.
