Omelette Paneer Roll

Pin

 

Do you see some connection here? While doing the posts for the Blogging Marathon #90 for the theme “Wrap and Rolls”, I unconsciously went with all egg recipes!Β  Whether the Kolkata Egg Rolls or the Egg Toasties and now this one, all are with eggs! πŸ˜€ So it feels like I did a theme within the theme! Hehe…

 

I had mentioned earlier that at the moment, I am on a quantified diet, ie. I get to eat limited stuff within my macros. Alhamdulillah, I have been able to steadily lose weight and am very happy with my progress. I now have the last block of weight to lose and I am pretty much sure that my body would not want to let it go. πŸ˜‰ I am targeting this year end to get to my goal, InShaAllah. Definitely it will need a close watch on my diet plus religious workouts to see results. Plus my travel tomorrow home for a month is not going to help the purpose – I will go on a diet break but hopefully I won’t break myself by going overboard. πŸ˜€

 

Eggs, being a protein rich and good fat loaded food, is one staple for me. For the past six months, I have been eating them every single morning. So eggs are stocked in two trays at at time in my fridge. Couple up with HD and B loving eggs, it makes a quick fix meal any time of the day.

Usually I have my eggs in the morning. But sometimes I keep them for night. This was one dish I tried during one of the weekend for dinner. I wasn’t sure how this would taste, but for a person who loves paneer burji and omelette, I was sure the combination would be a killer. I ensured to make this when nobody was there in the house. HD smells my food and comes around to see what I am cooking for myself. He wants to eat what I have made and then when I reason with him that he can’t touch my food because it is all weighed, he will say, “Nothing is going to happen if you don’t eat a few grams!” They will never understand how we feel about it… πŸ˜€

 

OK, so coming back to this roll, it’s basically an omelette basket, filled with a paneer scramble filling and topped with some mozarella cheese! Now doesn’t that sound very sinful? Normally, I carry my food with me if I am going out during the weekend, but the weekend I made this, I simply couldn’t resist myself after the shoot, that I straight away sat and enjoyed the meal! It was truly delicious… No, I am bragging… Please do try for yourself!

Did you like the background? I used it in my Strawberry Fool post too. When my sister asked what I wanted from US, I said, I wanted this marble background. It is a rollable vinyl sticker, and so convenient. I am already addicted to it… hehe…
