Hariyali Paneer Tikka Wraps

Hariyali Paneer Tikka – Paneer cubes tossed in an array of Indian spices, herb chutney, oil and yogurt, let to soak in the spices for sometime to infuse all the flavors The infused paneer cubes are cooked on a grill for the aromatic smokey flavor. Marinated paneer is a fantastic option for an appetizer or as a stuffing in wraps. My kids are fond of paneer dishes, this is one of their most fav stuffing for wraps. This recipe is so simple, we make it for dinner on week nights. I would love it if paneer can be cooked on the grill, which we do during the warm days. During the cold evenings I follow a simple method of cooking it on the stove top, also sauté some bell peppers and onions on the side to add in the wraps along with the paneer. This is such an easy way to make tasty paneer wraps in 30 mins using store bought naan/tortilla once the paneer is marinated.
