Paneer bread rolls step-by-step recipe with photos.
About this recipe
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' lunchboxes 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 them with my daughter and she totally enjoys both making and eating them.
This recipe is similar to bread roll, which is popular street food, but it tastes way better. The potatoes in a bread roll are replaced with paneer or cottage cheese in this dish. Also, bread rolls are deep-fried, but I shallow fry the paneer bread rolls – so healthier too.
Try this for kids' lunch boxes, snacks, or appetisers and I am sure it will be loved by all.
