Today morning was a rush-rush morning coz Rajeev had to go out till about 9 a.m. & by the time I woke up it was 8.00 I overslept, coz I was two-timing watching both the exciting India-Australia match on one hand & A PERFECT MURDER - the movie on the other channel. I woke up & worried on what breakfast to give him. I was tired of pohas & upmas and didnt want to make the same old thing. Some thinking & experimentation brought me to a nice variation to the daily breakfast. You can add / subtract whatever you like.

Ing -
For the filling -
250 gms - paneer
1/2 capsicum - sliced very thinly & small
2 big onions - finely chopped
1/2 tsp - jeera / cumin
1 tbspn - corriander-mint chutney (I used Heinz)
1 tbspn - tomato ketchup
salt to taste
green chillies
For the base -
1 normal roti or paratha
Method -
In a fry pan, add some oil
Add the jeera, when they sputter add the onions & capsicum. Fry till onions are light brown.
Add the chillies, chutney & ketchup & salt.
Mash the paneer & add into the kadai
Fry well till there is no moisture.
Meanwhile you can make the rotis.
Keep some fill in the center of the chappati & roll.
Cut into two pcs each.
I served it with a glass of chilled chocolate milk - check out my favorite mug - isint it cute?? I had two of them one with the face of a boy. That was his, & this is mine. His broke.......& I was really very sad that the pair had been spoilt.
Pls dont mind the pics, they were taken in a rush.

this is a really cute pic, really, i mean it. and the idea for paneer rolls is really great :) you even got to blog about it, right? :)

Sona - thanks for dropping by. First things first "Sheela" is my mom, "Shella" is me, I know weired ways mallu's name their kids. Half the time people are confused between me & mom!! We look alike too.

Thanks for liking my mug. I too adore it. You shd have seen the other one with the guy on it. I looked at so many places for a replacement, but couldnt get something similar. Even if there were they looked quite local.

Nags - its the mug that makes it cute - nahi?? I know, we can replace the paneer with so many other stuffings, veggies, aloo, or maybe shredded chiken in may. the list is endless. And roti makes it healtier than maida rolls.

hi shella, all these rolls are making me hungry! great breakfast food.

Shella said...

Srivalli - thanks dear. I had made the filling this way for the first time but really loved it.

Easycrafts - it did taste very good. The chutney & ketchup gave it a zing. I guess if I added some sliced onions & shredded cabbage it could have been a little crunchier too.

Cinnamon - Thanks for getting it right. Do try the rolls.

Shella said...

Sona - you are the first person to tell me that my name is nice. I myself have never reall liked it so much. Chalo, makes me feel better. Hey, I make it a point to leave comments wherever I visit (i.e., to make my presence felt in the blog world ;-)).

About writing, I somehow love writing & can express myself better on pen / paper - keyboard / screen, I guess that explains it. You can rule out reading the story before the recipes my dear.
