Here’s how to make Nadiya Hussain’s Spinach and Paneer Kati Rolls if you want something fast and delicious

As a huge fan of British celebrity chef Nadiya Hussain, I am slowly working my way through the recipes she makes on her BBC Two series Nadiya’s Family Favourites.

Last week, I finally got to Nadiya’s Spinach and Paneer Kati Rolls, which I made for lunch and ate again for dinner the same day. And can I just say, “Yum, yum and oh yes, yum” — because they really are delicious.


Learning how to make Nadiya Hussain’s Spinach and Paneer Kati Rolls was easy as well. They literally take minutes to prepare and cook, and only require a handful of simple ingredients.

In fact, if you are looking for a quick and easy, yet amazingly delicious meal to whisk up, I highly recommend these. For yourself, or anyone you are trying to impress.

I ate my first batch for lunch with a lovely savory fruit salad of fresh grapes, tomatoes and olives. For dinner, I had them with chips. *French fries for those Americans among us.
