Paneer Tikka Wrap and Roll

This is a delicious and easy to make one dish meal. It can serve as a snack or can also be served as a main meal. I had a wonderful chicken wrap in LA a few years ago and I really wanted to make something similar. Well I had some paneer in the fridge and some lavash and this dish was created. It is a cross between paneer tikka and a sandwhich. Quick to make and absolutely flavorful and delectable.


Ingredients
1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1 cup paneer - diced into bite sized pieces
1 green bell pepper/capsicum - diced
1 large or 2 medium sized tomatoes - diced
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp red chilli powder or to taste
1 tbsp chickpea flour/ besan (optional) or cornflour
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp kasuri methi
1/4 tsp turmeric
lavash bread (2-4)
salt to taste


Method
Mix together yogurt, flour, masalas, kasuri methi, salt, turmeric, ginger garlic paste and red chilli powder. To this add paneer and tomatoes. Keep this mixture aside for 10 minutes. Heat oil in a pan and add the bell pepper to it. Fry it for 2-5 mins and add the paneer mixture. Cook this till the mixture is almost dry and hte paneer is browned. This will create the paneer tikkas.

Heat the lavash bread, add the cooked paneer mixture and roll it up into a wrap. This can be enjoyed hot or cold. A cool dip is a great complement with this dish as well as some hot sauce.


Tips
Dice all the pieces to similar sizes so it cook uniformly and is easy to eat. If you cannot find lavash bread, this can be replaced by whole wheat tortilla or whole wheat paratha or chapati/roti. You can spread some butter on the lavash bread before adding the paneer and rolling it to enhance the taste. The chaat masala also has salt, so be careful when you add salt. The flour is added to provide thickness to the paneer tikka mixture, creating a sauce.
