Paneer Wraps - Low Fat & Healthy Breakfast

Paneer wrap
Paneer Wrap

These wraps are so tempting and irresistible that you would like to add it to your weekly breakfast plan. The plus point here is that the recipe is very easy and quick. You can do most of the preparation a night before.

When I make this recipe, I always prefer to make this sabji- chinese style cabbage stir-fry for the dinner with some extra cabbage so that I can use the leftover sabji for 'paneer wrap' in the break-fast. Dough and Low fat paneer can also be prepared a night before and keep in the refrigerator. So, on a hurried morning I just need to cook the chapati and assemble the wrap.

To keep the fat-content in check, I've use home made low fat paneer. Also I've used whole wheat chapati, unlike the street food where they use oily lachha paranthas to make this wrap. So the overall outcome is a good deal of healthy and yummy break fast.
