For Marinating:

  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander
  • 1 medium-sized chopped onion
  • 2 medium-sized chopped green tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of fresh parsley
  • 1 bunch of green garlic
  • 3-4 green chilies
  • 1 small piece of ginger
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • pinch of salt

For Grilled veggies:

  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper
  • 1 medium-sized yellow bell pepper
  • 10-12 par-boiled baby potatoes
  • 10-12 chunks of fresh and soft paneer


  • 4 roti’s or tortillas
  • 1 cup tomato garlic chutney readily available


How to proceed for marinating:

  • Peel, trim, and wash the ingredients and let drain.
  • Then rough-cut into smaller pieces so it’s easier to manage and work in the blender or food processor.
  • Add all the ingredients into your food processor or a blender including the water.
  • You may be required to move around or push down the ingredients occasionally so it all gets worked by the blades.
  • Personally I like to liquify my blend to the consistency tad more liquid. However, you can make a bit more chunky-like if you wish.

How to proceed with vegetables:

  • Chop all the vegetables into small chunks and marinate in the seasoning for at least 2hours in the fridge.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 C. Remove the veggies from the fridge. Place them on the skewers and grill it for 15-20 minutes changing and tossing the sides.

How to serve:

  • Spread tomato and garlic chutney on the grilled hot roti and fill it with the grilled vegetables.
