Paneer Kathi Roll

I remember when I was a child and used to hate eating normal chapatis my father used to say "isko aati maati kar ke khila do roti" which meant roll the cooked vegetable into the chapati and eat it like a roll. then i used to finish the chapati asap. These rolls are not old and r there in out houses since ages. I will give it a fancy name as Paneer Kathi Roll. Its a famous street food, popular among all the people. Its healthy and a complete meal by itself.
