South Vs North Challenge, a montly event started by Divya, is a platform to learn and try authentic recipes from different parts of India. This month, Minnie of The Lady8Home challenged the South team with these delicious paneer tikka kathi rolls. The paneer tikka by itself was so delicious that I couldn't resist gobbling up few pieces of paneer! You can have the rolls just as such or serve them with mint chutney.
Notes and Tips
- Do not roll the roti too thin or too thick. Make sure not to cook the roti for long, it will become dry and will be difficult to roll.
- You can make plain roti and stuff with paneer tikka mixture and serve the salad as a side.
