Naan Paneer Wrap

This is a quick and easy wrap that is delicious and comforting. It takes less time to fix this, made with paneer and naan, and is a great idea to pack for lunch. This can be weekend brunch or dinner too!

I received samples from Karoun Dairies towards developing recipes. The views expressed are my own. Karoun Dairies Labne is one of our favorites. It is great to use as a dip, make new dips, and also make shrikand. I made a quick green chutney labne. This is easy to make. Just mixt the two ingredients. I recommend doubling the recipe for this chutney labne if you are planning to pack a little of this as a dipping sauce too! This can be used with tortilla chips too! This chutney labne gives the perfect creamy spread for the wrap. If you do not have labne, greek yogurt or strained yogurt can be used.

I usually make wraps for lunch as they are easy to pack and easy to eat. Kids prefer wraps. I found Footlong Naans in the frozen section and used it in this recipe. It is slightly longer than the regular naans. Since the name was catchy, kids loved it. I chose garlic footlong naans. Any naan can be used. If using regular naan, four naans may be required. If mini naans are used, reduce the paneer, or make more wraps. I do not reduce the paneer as my kids would gobble them. Sometimes I use regular rotis to make this wrap. So any flatbread of your choice can be used.

To make this wrap, you'll need:

Naan - Any flavored naan can be used.

Chutney labne - delicious spread made with green mint-cilantro chutney and labne. Serve a little on the side as a sauce to dip and eat.

Veggies - cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, and tomatoes are great to use.

Pickled onions - we love the acid from the pickled onions. They add the brightness to this wrap. I highly recommend this. Fresh slices of onions can also be used instead.

Paneer - Garam masala marinated and sautéed paneer.

Green chutney - Add an extra drizzle of this chutney to jazz up, if you prefer a spicy one.

We love paneer. Who doesn't? This paneer used here doesn't demand a lot of work. Whenever I decide to pack this for lunch, I marinate it overnight in the refrigerator. I use garam masala, turmeric, cayenne, Kashimiri chili, and garlic powder. These are almost pantry staples. Kashmiri chili powder adds to color and is less spicy. Play around with your favorite spice powders for unique flavors for variations. The paneer also cooks in 5 minutes! Yes! That's a great advantage when you are trying to pack everyone's lunch and get out of the house. But, it is assured that this is a comforting and satisfying lunch.

Paneer is also one of our favorites. Paneer for lunch brings extra happiness. I make quick paneer curries or paneer burji to make grilled cheese or a sandwich for them. Often I pack this wrap for lunch. This is a quick one to pack and I am sharing this for Christie's event "Brown Bag Lunches" in #ourFamilyTable group. We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too!

Paneer, semi-soft non melting Indian cheese is an all time hit in our home. These Paneer Tempura, Malai Paneer Tikka,  or Grilled Cilantro Lime Paneer are great appetizers. Paneer Tikka Poutine is a great snack as well as a snack style dinner! Gochujang Paneer Bowl and Panner and Spinach Stuffed Shells in Malai Sauce make comforting meals. Check the blog for more fun and delicious paneer recipes!

Wraps and rolls are loved in our home. Kids prefer any kind of wraps over any other meal. If you are like us, try these wraps and you'd love them.

These Five Ingredient Tortilla Wraps give you an idea to make a quick and comforting meal! There are eighteen wraps in this collection and I would recommend you to bookmark it.
