Hara Bhara Papad Roll

Jump to recipe...

Hara Bhara Papad Roll, is basically papad filled with a spicy & minty potato- paneer mixture. I filled mine with paneer, potato, corn, bell pepper, cilantro, mint, thai chilies, garlic, ginger, and maslas. I had a paneer filled papad roll at a restaurant once but it was very bland. I loved the concept of it but I knew I needed to make it more flavorful. We always get hara bhara kebabs at restaurants. I simply mixed the two together, and VIOLA! I also airfried the papad rolls, instead of frying. It keeps things on the healthier side and also the fact that I’m terrified of frying still lol. It was a win win for me. You can totally fry them if you wish to. I’m sure they probably will taste even better, because fried just tastes better lol. 

These would make for a great appetizer at a party, they are very simple and easy to make. I is also less time consuming. You can make the filling a day before and just roll and cook the papads the day of. It is something different and not your regular app that you get everywhere. I hope you all enjoy this as much as we did! If you make these please tag me @zheelicious and let me know how you liked them!

Stay happy, stay hungry!

Prep time: 10 minutesCook time: 10 minutesTotal time: 20 minutesMakes: 10 Rolls


  • Papad
  • 1 cup paneer, shredded
  • ½ cup peas
  • 1 potato, boiled & mashed
  •  2 green onions, chopped 
  • 2 tbsp corn
  • 2 tbsp bell pepper, finely chopped 
  • ½ cup cilantro, finely chopped 
  • ¼ cup mint, finely chopped 
  •  3 thai chilies, finely chopped 
  • 2 garlic cloves, shredded 
  • 1 inch ginger, shredded
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ¼ tsp garam masala 
  • ½ tsp amchur powder
  • Salt to taste 
  • chaat masala to taste
  • Cooking spray 


  1. In a bowl add all the ingredients (besides the papad) and mix well. Set it aside until ready to use.
  2. In a shallow plate take some water, take a papad and dip it into water on both sides or until it is loose and pliable. Lay the wet papad on a cutting board and add about 2-3 tbsp of the filling. Fold two sides and roll like you would a burrito. 
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees. Spray the bottom of the air fryer with cooking spray. Lay the papad rolls in there, and spray the cooking spray over all the rolls. Cook the rolls for 5-7 minutes. Turn them once in between. Cook them more if you like them crispier. 
  4. Serve hot with green chutney


  • You can fry the papad rolls instead if you don’t have an air-fryer. 
  • I used Yash brand papads, and got them from India.
  • I use coconut oil cooking spray from Trader Joe’s, but any kind you have is fine. 
  • You can use oil to grease the air fryer if you don’t have cooking spray.
  • The serving size will also depend on the size of your papad and how much you fill in the rolls as well- just something to keep in mind when you make these.
