Well, I had a lot of plans for making something interesting and elaborate in the microwave this month for my Microwave Easy Cooking event hosted by dear Raji. She did send a gentle threatening mail, saying, after all, it’s my event, and I got to send her an entry…Ok, I know I have been kind of held up with a lot of other things, that I hadn’t been able to do things that I planned. I guess it happens to the best of us, so I can be excused. But how can I ignore her note, knowing well I got to pinch in!
Anyway, brainwave for this roll came from the fact that Peddu loves bread and I was keen on introducing him to Cheese. I had already given Paneer cubes and he liked it. When I show him bread, he is ready to eat it anytime. That is his love for bread. And he loves Jam and Sauce. Chinnu doesn’t like either. Konda loves both. Well, I have a choice I know, so I decided to do this roll, that I normally do with either Jam or Potatoes.
Microwave Paneer Cheese Rolls
- 4 – Fresh Bread Slices
- 1 – Cheese Cube
- 150 gm – Paneer
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp – Chili Powder
- Pepper Powder a pinch
- 1 tsp – Cooking Oil
- 1 tsp – Butter / Ghee
Method to prepare:
- Fresh bread works out fine for this, as you need to roll them out flat using the rolling pin. Trim the ends if you must, most times I leave them on.
- In a microwave bowl, crumble the paneer, add the salt, spice powders, cooking oil, and micro for 20 sec. The paneer will get soft but well mixed with spices.
- Once you have the bread all rolled out plain, top it with the paneer and grated cheese. From one end, roll it tight, covering the paneer.
- Brush the bread with ghee, micro on a wire rack for 1 min.
- Serve hot with sauce!
Peddu loved this a lot, am sure I am going to experiment a lot with the stuffing to suit toddlers.
