Chilli Paneer Wrap

Somehow Paneer has not been our favourite!!! But we do eat during the parties and get-togethers. I wanted to participate in the MEC: Paneer. So finally bought a small packet of frozen paneer and thought that will try it on my daughter as she would'nt be able to guess the basic ingredient Paneer.
I went through my cookbooks which I have maintained since 1995 when I started helping my ma.. I used to note it down. There are various recipes from TV cookery shows to the recipes given by friends and relatives. This particular recipe was from Tarla Dalal and I always knew it was worth a try. I made a few changes according to my availability of ingredients. My daughter loved it at the first bite and ordered to pack the same wrap for school the next morning.


Chapathis - 4, left over or freshly made.
Yogurt dip or Mayonnaise or any spread of your choice

Frozen or fresh Paneer - ½ cup, cut into 1" cubes
spring onion white or onion - ¼cup
schezuan sauce - 1 tbsp
capsicum - 1 medium
spring onion greens - ¼cup
olive oil - 2 tsp

soya sauce - 1 tsp
cornflour - 1 tsp
sugar - ½tsp
salt and pepper to taste
water - ¼cup

Defrost paneer and dice them into cubes. Chop finely spring onion white and greens. Wash and chop capsicum into small squares.
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce and keep aside.

Take a microwave safe medium sized bowl. Add olive oil, spring onion white or onions. MW HIGH for 2 minutes. Now add the schezuan sauce and MW HIGH for another minute. Now add paneer cubes, capsicum and sauce mixture. MW HIGH for 3 minutes, till the soya sauce mixture thickens and coats the paneer and capsicum. Add spring onion greens and mix well. Keep aside.

Divide chilli paneer filling into 4 portions. Spread the yogurt dip/mayonnaise on the chapathi. Spread one portion of the filling in the centre of each chapathi and roll up tightly.

Warm the rolls wrapping them in a paper towel and MW HIGH for 40 secs.
Serve hot with Tomato Ketchup.

Chilli Paneer wrap is off to the MEC: Paneer Event and MEC: Announcement

Looks quite tempting. Am sure it was quite delicious. Can a similar recipe be tried using fish? I recently tried live fish for sale from one of the best online live fish store in Mumbai..Do try.
