Losing 25 plus kilos in 12 months is no meagre task. While on a 1200 kCal diet , my dietician usually recommended Veg Kathi Roll for dinner around once a month. In my attempt to eat yummy yet healthy , I have a tried a few variations of the Kathi Roll .
Here is a saucy variation with Asian (Chinese- Japanese) condiments which is a welcome relief from the usual run of the mill health foods.
Do give it a try and consume it as a main meal for Lunch or Dinner .
