Food Experiment: Paneer (Cottage Cheese) Lettuce Wrap Recipe!!

Today I tried something different in my kitchen. I was basically experimenting new recipe. I love regular Chicken Lettuce Wrap (Recipe Here), and wanted to create a Vegetarian version as well. I could not think anything better than Paneer (Cottage Cheese). I included random vegetables available in my freezer as well as topped everything with yummy and spicy tomato-onion salsa. The outcome was amazing and I am definitely going to make this dish always. Here you go guys, enjoy this easy yet extremely yummy Paneer Lettuce Wrap :)
