Paneer Bhurji roll, for Kid's Lunch Box


Hi folks,I am back once again with a nutritious lunch box idea.Today I am not sharing the regular paneer bhurji that you get at the restaurants.this one is loaded with vegetables,which add to the flavour ,texture nutrition and also some added crunch to the rolls.This recipe requires very little spices,and little oil.It can get prepared in  a jiffy.I would still suggest that if you have to pack lunch boxes too early ,then you can actually make the bhurji the previous day ,and use it to fill in the chapati the next morning.
