Paneer Tikki Wrap

Flatbreads stuffed with any filling that you can imagine makes quickest grab and go meal. Try making wraps using your culinary skills from different cuisines. The one that I made today is inspired by Indian cuisine. Tikki meaning small cutlet made with potato and paneer wrapped in a tortilla or whole wheat roti if you want it more healthy.

Ingredients
5 tortilla/any flavored tortilla/whole wheat roti
1 1/4 cup grated Paneer
1 medium potato boiled and mashed
1 tbs fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 tsp chaat masala
1/8 tsp chili powder
Salt to taste
Oil as required to shallow fry tikki's
4 tbs green chutney(mint+cilantro)
1 small onion sliced thinly
1 small tomato sliced thinly
2 green chili's sliced thinly(optional)
Mix Together
5 tbs sour cream
1/2 tsp dried mint(dried pudina)
Salt and pepper

Method
Mix together grated paneer, mashed potato, cilantro, chaat masala, chili powder and salt. Combine everything together and form them to make oval size cutlets. You should get about 10 tikkis depending on what size you make.
Shallow fry them until golden brown from both sides. Keep them aside. Meanwhile mix together sour cream, dried mint, salt and pepper. This is your dressing for the wrap. 
Hmmmm..... I can eat them right away :) but I think I will save them for the wraps. Actually this dish right here will work great as an appetizer. Now to assemble place a tortilla on flat surface, arrange 2 tikki's followed by dressing and mint-cilantro chutney. Top it with sliced onions, tomatoes, green chili's and wrap it by folding up and down sides first and then fold both the sides so that all the filling is secured inside it. Don't bother if some of the dressing drips out. Same procedure goes for remaining tortilla's. 
Relax and enjoy your zesty wrap!

Quick Tips-:
If you don't have sour cream on hand use thick yogurt instead or you can also hang regular yogurt in a muslin cloth and hang it for 15 minutes, it will work just as well.
