paneer kati roll

Paneer kati roll ~ For lunch today

My love for kati roll’s started after tasting the first one in new york city. Chunks of paneer or chicken cooked in spices arranged on a bed of lettuce, and wrapped in warm tortilas/rotis is a delectable feast to the eyes and palate too. Today’s recipe is a quick version of kati roll that is spicy, tangy and sure to tickle your taste buds at the first bite. Here’s how to make it….
