Roll up a Quickie !

When you need a quick snack, you look around your kitchen to check your shelves and fridge for ingredients that you easily have ! Bread, milk, eggs and onions are almost always available. Bread makes an excellent wrap for these crispy, nutty, cigar shaped rolls. They can be fried in very little oil or they can be baked in an OTG (oven, toaster, grill). Verka Paneer makes a great filling. If you don’t have it at home, then make paneer with Verka Full Fat Milk. It’s super soft, and delicious and quick to prepare.


Quickie Rolls

  • 4 slices bread, crusts trimmed
  • 4 tbsp Verka Butter
  • 1 litre Verka Full Fat Milk
  • 1­2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1⁄2 cup grated zucchini
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tbsp broken walnuts
  • salt, pepper and mustard powder to taste
  • 1 chopped green chili (optional)



  • Boil the Verka milk, then add lemon juice to split it. Drain away the liquid and squeeze well.
  • Use a little butter and fry the onion and zucchini till soft. Add dried oregano and a little salt.
  • Cool and mash the paneer well. Mix with zucchini, onions, walnuts, chili, salt, pepper and mustard powder.
  • Use a rolling pin (belan) to flatten each bread slice. Keep covered with a moist cloth.
  • Spread a little Verka Butter on each slice of bread.
  • Place a little mixture on one side of each slice, then roll up gently and secure with a toothpick.
  • Brush lightly with melted butter and toast under a grill, or in an OTG till browned.
  • If you do not have an OTG, lightly roast the rolls on a hot frying pan till browned.
  • Serve hot with a mint chutney or tomato ketchup.


Notes: While frying, make sure the onion and zuchini mixture is quite dry. This will prevent the bread from getting soggy. You can also use capsicum, carrot or bell pepper. Walnuts give a nuttiness to the rolls. They are also beneficial to our health. You may use other nuts like almonds, cashews or peanuts.
