Paneer Kathi Roll Recipe

Popular Indian street food, Paneer Kathi Rolls are warm, layered parathas filled with spicy paneer, mixed peppers, and sweet caramelized onions. Whether you make it for a quick weeknight meal or a leisurely gathering, these Kathi rolls are sure to be a hit!

Traditionally made with skewered kebob filling, I love this quick and easy vegetarian version served with the crispy Kawan parathas that take it up a notch for a surefire winner amongst kids and adults alike. Paneer is a staple ingredient in my kitchen for quick and easy meals such as Paneer Jalfrezi, Palak Paneer, and Paneer Makhani which are all ready in under 30 minutes and make for a good source of protein.

How to Make Paneer Kathi Rolls

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add paneer and mix well.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add onions, peppers, and ½ teaspoon of salt and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add marinated paneer and mix well. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the heat off and garnish with cilantro.
  3. Blend all the chutney ingredients using 2 tablespoons of water to make a smooth sauce. Note: Add more water as needed, a little at a time.
  4. Heat a non-stick griddle pan. Remove the Kawan paratha from the plastic wrapping and place it on the griddle. Cook on medium-high heat for about 1 to 1-½ minutes on each side or until both sides are golden brown, pressing gently with a spatula.


  1. Paneer – This Indian Cottage cheese can be made at home using just 2 ingredients – milk and lemon juice. Here is my homemade paneer recipe. Although, oftentimes I find myself using store-bought paneer (Gopi or Haldiram brand) for convenience. It is sold in Indian grocery stores, Wholefoods, and Costco.
  2. Mixed Bell Peppers – I like red and green as they offer a nice contrasting color with sweetness from red and a mildly bitter flavor from green. You can use any peppers you have on hand
  3. Red Onions – In addition to the sweetness of sauteed red onions, I love the beautiful red hue it adds to the filling. I also love adding thinly sliced raw red onions while serving for some crunch
  4. Spices – Kashmiri red chili powder, ginger, garlic, garam masala, turmeric, Kasoori methi, and salt
  5. Green Chutney – Homemade or store-bought green chutney
