Vegetable Kathi Roll With Soya Keema

Kathi Rolls in Kolkata complement each other. This is a kind of snack which is available in every nook and corner of the city to high end restaurants. Be it a millionaire coming out from his BMW or a Cyclist , both of them would have this roll as their evening snack. The taste of it is awesome and every time I land in Kolkata, I head towards the nearest roll joint ( Bedouin, Gariahat). 

With passage of times, there has been influx of healthy and nutritious vegetarian rolls to expand the roll lover’s horizon. Adding Soya, Tofu or Paneer adds up to the taste for the veggies. So here is an attempt of mine to recreate a fraction of taste of Kolkata rolls with a healthy twist.

3/4 cup Soya granules
1 Capsicum, cut lengthwise
1 Tomato, de-seed, cut lengthwise
1/2 cup Purple cabbage
150 gms Panner (cottage cheese)
1/4 cup Green peas (OPTIONAL)
1-2 Green chilli
1 tsp Chat masala
Tomato ketchup
few tbsp Green coriander chutney
1/2 lemon
Salt and black pepper to taste

For Paratha:
1 1/4 cups All purpose flour
3 tbsp white Oil (moyen)

Take a deep bowl, add flour, salt, oil and combine well. Add water little by little to form a soft yet firm dough. Cover the dough and keep aside for 15 minutes.
In between prepare the filling. Heat water in a vessel and pour soya granules into it, with a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and rinse soya granules in running water. Squeeze out excess water.

 Heat a non stick pan and add 2 tbsp vegetable oil in it. Fry granules with some salt and peas for 5-6 minutes. Now add all the vegetables into the pan and stir fry on medium flame for few minutes. Check the seasoning and turn off the flame. Add lemon when the filling cools down.

To prepare the paratha, pinch a big size of dough, flour the surface and roll it into big round shape (little bigger than usual roti/chapati size). On a flat pat, place one paratha and cook lightly on both sides without oil. When some brown spots appears add 1 tsp oil and fry for a minute from both sides. Remove from pan and place it on a plate, spread some green chutney paste, ketchup and 2 -3 tbsp filling. Sprinkle some chat masala to jazz up the rolls. Roll the paratha tightly to form a roll. To hold the rolls you can wrap the lower part with tissue and enjoy !
