Paneer Tikka Roll
Classic Indian Street Food
“Roll” of any kind is an all time favorite for a lot of street food lovers. If you are looking for a simple, fuss-free way to kill those tea break hunger pangs, you have to try making these rolls at home, I promise they will never let you down. Here the filling is pretty customizable by adding veggies of your choice or including proteins like egg and chicken. Today I am sharing a personal favorite “Paneer Tikka Roll”
These desi style wraps filled with spiced paneer and veggies makes a delicious light lunch or dinner. A touch of spices and a dash of lemon juice turns this into a finger licking delicacy. While spiced paneer is the star ingredient in these rolls, the texture and flavor of the flatbread also adds an immense depth of deliciousness to the final dish.
So if you have time try making parathas at home, or if you are in hurry you can always use left over chapatis or even frozen chapathis. This is my recipe for malabar paratha if you would like to try- https://shriscookbook.com/2014/04/13/15/
By now a lot of you guys already know I work from home and visit Bangalore office occasionally. Out of the few people who are excited to have me around, there is this humble man “Jagadeesh” who works in the Pantry, he is always so happy to see me. We have made this unknown bond that’s just so special. Every time I go meet him to grab something to eat he would suggest the new things they are serving in the pantry and would insist on getting my feedback. Last time he made me try this amazing “Paneer Roll” he has made, it was so good that I ended up having it for my lunch the whole week!!
After returning home, I have been wanting to try making these rolls for my family and last week I made these rolls and everyone loved them! So sharing my take on this classic Indian street food snack.
Paneer cubes- 200 gms
Mayonnaise- 2 tsp
Tomato Ketchup- 2 tsp
Marinade for Paneer:-
Thick Curd- 1/2 cup
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Ginger & garlic paste- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp

Garam masala- 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice- 1 tsp
Besan- 1 tsp
Pinch of Aamchur powder and salt to taste
Thinly sliced carrots, onions, capsicum
Salt & pepper to taste
In a bowl mix all the ingredients under marinade and coat paneer cubes with all the spices. Keep it aside for at least 15 minutes.
Mix the salad in another bowl and season them with salt and pepper.
In a non stick pan, shallow fry the paneer cubes over high heat for few minutes, stirring occasionally and cook the paneer until all the marination thickened and formed a coat over the paneer.
Place the rotis/parathas on a flat surface and place a portion of the filling in the center.
Add the salad on top of the paneer as much as you like. Top them with spoonful of mayonaise and some tomato ketchup and roll it up tightly.
The paneer rolls are now ready to be served. Serve the Paneer Tikka Rolls as a snack for tea time on weekends or as an appetizer for parties and enjoy!!
Also this is pretty much the same recipe for Chicken tikka rolls also. You just have to increase the spices to make them more flavorful.
