Veggies and Paneer to prepare this dish
Who doesn’t like paneer? It is so versatile that could it be used in a variety of dishes both hot and sweet. Growing up, my Mom would make home made paneer (yummm…). It used to be so fresh, creamy and melts in your mouth. I would simply add some powdered sugar, some powdered elaichi (cardamom), kesar and just eat it as a dessert whenever my craving for something sweet would occur. But, today, I will share a mouth watering recipe that will blow your mind off. It is paneer shimla mirch wrap. It’s easy to prepare and easy to carry for lunch not to mention that I love to eat with my hands. If you enjoyed my Mutter Paneer, this dish is sure to please you.
Paneer or Cottage cheese 14 oz pack
1 medium size red and green shimla mirch or bell pepper cut into strips
1 onion cut into lengthwise
A couple of cloves, pepper, elaichi(cardamom) powdered together
2 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp haldi (turmeric) powder
1 – 2 tbsp oil
1 green chili chopped
1 tsp jeera or cumin seeds
Salt to taste
Cook paneer just like in my Mutter Paneer recipe and keep it aside. Heat oil in a pan, add jeera, add the spice powder and saute the onions with it. Then add shimla mirch and saute more. Add red chili powder and salt. When the shimla mirch is still crunchy add the paneer and mix well. Adjust seasonings if needed. Garnish with cilantro. Place a couple of spoonful in between a Paratha or Chappati or Roti or Tortilla and wrap.
