Paneer/Cottage Cheese Burrito

Hello Fellow Chefs,

This is a quick and easy recipe, perfect for lazy evening or weekend brunch or pack it for lunch. I like to try different flavours with Indian ingredients, so came up with Paneer Burrito. Paneer is an Indian cottage cheese which is easily available in most Indian grocery stores. I have added Mexican flavours to Paneer which tastes delicious 😛 😛 !! To make burritos, I am using regular tortilla but you can use gluten-free tortilla if you are on gluten-free diet. Kids will also enjoy these burritos. This recipe serves 4 people.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

350 gm paneer crumbled
2 small bell pepper of any colour sliced
1 onion sliced
1 tomato chopped or 1/2 cup tomato puree
2 garlic cloves grated
2 tsp taco seasoning
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

8 medium size tortilla
1 onion sliced thinly
Green chutney

Procedure

1. Thinly slice 1 onion for stuffing and another one for garnishing. Slice both pepper. Crumble paneer. Cut Vegetables

2. In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium heat. Saute onion for 1 minutes, then add sliced pepper, sliced tomato or tomato puree and salt. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes until pepper slices are slightly cooked. Then add paneer, taco seasoning, mix well and simmer on low for 1 minute covering the lid.  When all the flavours are blended together, turn off the heat. Let the mixture cool for 5-10 minutes.
