The Paneer Tikka Kathi Roll Recipe is a classic Indian Street Food snack that you can find in the streets of North India. Even Kolkata has its own set of Kolkata Egg Rolls that are a classic favorite at home.

These rolls are traditionally made with a lot of maida and cooked in a lot of oil and then wrapped into a roll along with a favorite filling. In this recipe of the Kathi roll, I have made the Wrap Dough with whole wheat flour and then filled it with a chatpata Paneer Tikka Masala which is absolutely delicious.

Serve the Paneer Tikka Kathi Rolls as a snack for tea on weekends, as an appetizer for parties along Mumbai Style Tawa Pulao Recipe With Moong Sprouts and Nawabi Kofta Curry Recipe or make it less spicy and pack it into your kid's lunch box.
