Dosa Paneer Roll

One fine evening when I was looking for options for preparing the evening snack for my son, all I had was a little dosa batter and some paneer in the refrigerator. I was not in a mood to prepare a side dish for that. Was thinking if I could do something with the paneer. I just thought why not give a tangy flavor to the paneer and stuff it in the dosa.  Needless to say this tasted good. I just used some basic ingredients, you can try with your own combo. Now, to the recipe!


Dosa batter - for preparing dosas
Oil/ghee - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1, finely chopped
Tomato - 1, finely chopped
Garlic - 1 or 2, minced finely
Capsicum - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Crumbled Paneer - 1/4 cup or 4 tbsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Tomato sauce - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - for garnish
Salt, turmeric powder and chilli powder as per taste

Optional Ingredients - green chilli, carrot, mashed potato, cooked peas, methi leaves etc.


Heat oil/ghee in a pan and add the cumin seeds. Once it stplutters add the garlic and saute for few mins. Then add the onion, fry until they turn translucent. Then add the capsicum and tomato, tomato sauce, salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala and saute until the tomatoes are mashed and cooked well.

Then, add the tomato sauce, mix well and then add the crumbled paneer. Give a nice stir and cook until all the flavors blend together. Do not over cook, else the paneer will turn rubbery. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Prepare dosa

Heat a dosa pan and prepare small dosas. Cook them on both sides and transfer them to a wide plate. Take a spoonful of the paneer stuffing and spread them evenly all over the dosa. Roll the dosa like a wrap, cut them diagonally and serve it. You don't need any side dish for this, as the tomatoes and the tomato sauce makes the filling moist which in turn results in a soft and tangy dosa. Yummiieee and filling dosas are ready to be enjoyed.
