Now coming to today's recipe! My DH offered to make dinner tonight! He wasn't even telling me what he is going to make. He just requested me to make a few Chapattis (Indian Bread) as he wasn't sure if he would be able to get all of those round if he makes by himself. As soon as I made Chapattis; I was shown my way out of kitchen.....And after a few minutes, I was amazed to see Paneer Tikka Kathi Rolls!!! ( Marinaded Paneer rolled into Indian Flat Bread)
He had done all the preparations while I was busy working on my blog this evening. I must say he did an amazing job! Kathi Rolls were delicious!!!! They were so good that I over-ate and I am still feeling stuffed. I am so proud of my dear husband.
Later he told me that he felt like treating me with something special so he went to Sanjeev Kapoor's website and found this recipe from there. He remembered that I used to love Kathi Rolls from New York (where I used to live before wedding). So he decided to make these specially to bring back those memories for me....You must be thinking How Sweet !! [ I know....I thought the same :) ]
Wowwww...These were so delicious!!
He made some little tweaks in the original recipe and made these Delicious Kathi Rolls (Click here for printable recipe)
