Kathi roll/ Paneer roll/ Spinach roll (palak roll)
A kathi roll is street food originating from Kolkata. Kebab wrapped in a paratha. These are a common street food found in many parts of India.
I have tried kathi rolls of vegetarian version using cottage cheese (paneer). But you can try with vegetables or noodles as par your taste.This recipe is a stomach filling and it’s best for office-goers and school going kids. you can try with different sauces or green chutney.
