How to Make Delicious Grilled Aubergine Rolls

 Although aubergines are delicious inside a wrap, they can also be used as a tasty replacement for the wrap itself. By brushing aubergine slices with oil and griddling them, you can make them strong enough to hold a filling, while still having that pleasant, caramelized finish on the surface. Here’s how to make some delicious grilled aubergine rolls.

Grilled Aubergine Rolls Recipe
• 3 medium aubergines 
• 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted
• 1 pinch of salt 
• 4 ½ tablespoons of olive oil 
Quinoa and Paneer Filling
• 3 ½ oz. of quinoa 
• 1 small onion 
• 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
• ¼ teaspoon chili powder
• 3 ½ oz. paneer, grated
• 1 teaspoon garam masala
• Bunch of coriander, chopped
• 1 dash of vegetable oil 
• 1 teaspoon salt
Crunchy Vegetables 
• 1 red beetroot, coarsely grated
• 2 carrots, coarsely grated
• 1 red pepper, cut small


1. Wash and cook the quinoa as per packet instructions, using water or stock. Drain and set aside.

2. Mix 3 ½ tablespoons of olive oil, toasted cumin, and salt in a bowl.

3. Trim the aubergines and slice lengthways into 1/8 inch thick slices. Brush the slices with the oil marinade.

4. Place a griddle pan or large frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, fry the aubergine slices for around 2-3 minutes on each side until they’re soft and colored. Once cooked, set aside on a kitchen towel to drain.

5. For the paneer and quinoa filling, place a non-stick pan on a medium heat and add some vegetable oil. Once hot, add the onion and sautée until they’re light brown in color.

6. Add the ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, salt, and chili powder and sauté for another 2 minutes.  

7. Add the cooked quinoa and cook for 5-7 minutes, then add the grated paneer and remove from the heat. Finish with the garam masala powder and chopped coriander.

8. Lay out the aubergine slices on a chopping board. Spread a generous layer of the filling on top of each and add the vegetables. Roll up each slice to enclose the filling.
