All is well....when there is a Kathi Roll
Kathi Rolls or wraps always remind me of my mother. If she was treated to a kathi roll , all was well…
We usually had a chicken or Paneer (Cottage cheese)double egg Kathi roll at the famous Nizams Kathi, but today , keeping in view with light lunches I prepared a vegetable roll. You can omit the Egg on the Jowar wrap if you don’t have egg. But it does give it a lot of added flavor. I have used Jowar or Sorghum Millet as the wrap as it is gluten free and packed with nutrients . Thanks to the Millet table , the jowar wraps were a hit !
Have a bite and you will know 'All is well…..

Release the pressure and open the lid. Add the jowar flour and mix very well.
Close the lid again and put the weight. Keep for 15 minutes.
Take out the dough, knead it a bit and make round balls.
Dust some flour and roll into rotis .
Heat a griddle or tawa , place the rolled dough on it and cook till done.
In a pan , heat some oil and smear some beaten egg on one side of each wrap and cook that side . Keep aside.
You can make them imperfectly round or perfect using a bowl to cut into shape
To prepare the wraps :
Take a wrap and place a bit of filling onto it , add the marinated sliced onions and if you have some mint chutney you may smear it in the wraps. Alternatively you may serve on the side.
Close the wrap with a toothpick and wrap it with wax paper for a to go meal or simply serve with your choice of accompaniment like a daal , raita or even potato wedges.
If you want Chicken kathi rolls, you can view the recipe of tandoori chicken on my blog and add that to the roll . For paneer, you may add it, crushed or small cubes to the vegetable filling .
