Paneer Bread Rolls


 

Paneer bread rolls are tasty spicy tea time snacks made with cottage cheese and bread. Easy and quick to make, they can be customised as per your preference – change the type of bread, increase or decrease the spice level, choose the stuffing vegetables you like… So many opportunities. They are great for kids lunch boxes too, as they stay fresh for a few hours. Not just for lunch boxes, it’s a great way to involve the kids in cooking too. I make then with my daughter and she totally enjoys both making and eating them.

This recipe is similar to bread roll, which is a popular street food, but it tastes way better. The potatoes in a bread roll is replaced with paneer or cottage cheese in this dish. Also, bread rolls are deep fried, but I shallow fry the paneer bread rolls – so more healthier too.

Try this for kids lunch box, snacks or appetisers and I am sure it will be loved by all.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

To make the stuffing:

Paneer – 1 cup, crumbled
Onion – ½ small, finely chopped
Capsicum – ¼ small, finely chopped
Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
Amchur (dry mango) – 1 tsp
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves, a few

To make the rolls:

Bread slices – 8-10 (I used white bread)
Mint chutney – 3-4 tsp
Butter to shallow fry the rolls

Method:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the ingredients of the stuffing
  2. Pinch out a small portion of the stuffing and roll it into oval shape. Take care the length of it is almost same as the bread. Repeat with the entire mixture
  3. Trim off the edges of the bread. Roll it using a rolling pin
  4. Spread a small amount of mint chutney onto the bread
  5. Place the stuffing on one edge of the bread
  6. Carefully roll the bread. Apply little water on the other edge and seal it completely. Repeat with rest of bread slices
  7. Heat a fry pan and add some butter. Place the bread onto it and fry for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.Brush some butter on top
  8. Carefully flip it and fry on both sides
  9. Serve with tomato ketchup and mint chutney
