Is Masala Paneer Roll Healthy?
This instant paneer roll contains fibre (roti/ paratha), protein (paneer) and essential nutrients (vegetables and spices). What makes this dish particularly healthy is that no extra oil is added while making the stuffing for the rolls. The only oil/ ghee required is for roasting the rotis/ parathas. Hence, it is relatively lower in calories than other types of rolls with stir-fried ingredients. This recipe also does not use cheese, which is commonly added in street-style rolls for extra decadence. A little bit of mayonnaise is added, but it is optional. If you want to make these rolls even healthier, you can choose to make the rotis using millet flour rather than maida or whole wheat flour. It will still taste equally yummy!
