5. Green chutney – 1/4 – 1/2 cup ( Recipe below)

7. Oil – 1.5 tbsp

Method

1. Heat 1.5 tbsp  oil in a non-stick pan. Add the marinated paneer pieces and fry until golden brown on both sides (you can grill them instead). Transfer to a plate. In the same pan,  saute the green and red bell peppers at medium-heat heat, adding little oil if required. Season with salt and pepper powder. Switch off when they are cooked but still crunchy.

2. To assemble

Arrange 3-4 pieces of fried paneer and bell peppers on a chapathi / tortilla, top with 2 – 3 tsp green chutney and some sliced onions and tomatoes. Roll the chapathi and secure wrap with a toothpick. Alternately wrap the lower part of the rolls in a paper napkin, butter paper or aluminium foil.

Shallow-fry paneer until golden brown on both sidesFry veggies for 2 - 3 minutesAssemble the chapathis

For the Green chutney

Grind a handful each of cilantro and mint leaves, 1 garlic clove, 1/4 inch ginger, 1 seeded green chilly, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1.5 tbsp yoghurt and enough salt. Grind to a fine paste.

Tips
