Paneer Rolls

Almost a month since I sat at my blog. Not too busy though, but I have not been cooking anything different from my routine.
I have been wanting to prepare this paneer rolls recipe (adopted from Tarla dalal) for a quite long time, but found time to make them only now. pretty simple and very yummmy! You have try this once, and after that I'm sure you will want to prepare it again and again. 

For the wrapper
2 cups all purpose flour (or use wheat flour)
1 tbsp ghee/oil (optional)
Salt to taste

For the Stuffing
1 cup crumbled paneer
1/4 cup approx of finely chopped red onions
1-2 green chillies, chopped finely (or as per taste)
1/4 cup tomatoes, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/4 tsp chopped green pepper
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1-2 drops of lime juiced
few sprigs of cilantro, chopped
salt to taste (little since wrapper also has salt)

Add the flour and salt. To this add enough water to make a pliable dough. Knead well to make a smooth dough. Once done set aside. 

For the filling, in a saute pan, add oil and onion and saute for a min or until tender. Now add the ginger garlic paste and saute for 2 mins. Now add the other ingredients. Saute this untill the cabbage and other veggies are tender. 

Finally add lemon juice and saute for 2 mins then add cilantro springs. Finally add the paneer and saute for a minute.
Take the dough (divide into two or  three smaller pieces) and roll it out into a large rectangle. 

Cut them into smaller rectangles. 
I made some random rectangles. It does not matter much. 

As you can see, The thickness should be medium – not too thin nor too thick (too thin will break after u fill it up with stuffing, too thick will not make a crunchy snack, but will be more soft). 
Take one piece. Add the stuffing in shorter end of the rectangle making sure to leave few inches near the edges.

Roll it twice, bring the edges of the filling together (this is to prevent the filling from seeping out during frying).and then continue rolling until you reach the end. You can use water mixed with flour mixture to bind the dough. 

I applied flour water mixture at the end. And roll till the end. Now fry these up in hot oil. Serve hot with ketchup or chilli sauce of your choice.

A bite of the roll is just yummy. I do not want to empty it before sundar comes. And I always like to eat together with him beside me, it adds more taste to all my food! So just wrapping the rolls and storing in air tight containers.
