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 :)

Heat 1 table spoon of oil and add minced paneer and cumin-coriander powder. Fry until slightly red and crispy. Take out fried minced paneer and put it aside.
After step 1, heat another table spoon of oil and add mushroom-sliced onion and soy sauce. Fry until golden brown. Take out mushroom-onion and put it aside.
Now on the same pan heat oil and add corn and green peas. Sprinkle salt. On a high heat fry until red and crispy.
On a large bowl, add chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, green chilies, and sriracha sauce. Mix well.
On a lettuce leaf, add fried paneer first, add corn-green peas, mushroom-onion, and tomato-onion salad at the end. I also added some chopped cucumber.
