A couple of days back we went to the local McDonald’s outlet and had their Paneer Salsa Wrap. Over the weekend I tried making my own Mexican Paneer Wraps at home (I can’t use the name ‘Paneer Salsa Wrap’ it seems to be their trademark!) According to family and friends the rolls were much better than the original J(I dedicate my success to lotso’ hard work and love I put into my cooking J) I have no idea how they make at Mc’s but I made them with the available ingredients and to suit our taste.
I was very impressed and encouraged by Sailu’s recent posts on Mexican recipes.I used her recipe for the Tomato Salsa as well as Sour Cream. Thanks Sailu. You will find very simple and easy recipes on her lovely blog here.
Paneer (cottage cheese) slices and some veggies along with the Tomato Salsa and Sour cream are wrapped in a tortilla to make these delicious wraps.
Mexican Paneer wraps recipe :To Make ~6-7 wraps __________________________________________________

- 250 gms Paneer block about
- 3 u2013 4 tbsps cornflour
- 2 - 3 tsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)

- Sieve and mix the wheat flour and maida, add oil, salt as required and knead into soft pliable dough. Keep aside for xbd an hour.Meanwhile, mix cornflour, salt, Worcestershire sauce and make a slurry using water.Cut paneer into slices lengthwise and about xbd a cm in thickness.Dip these slices in the cornflour slurry and deep fry in oil till golden brown.Heat Olive oil add the onions and sautxe9 till translucent. Add the other veggies and cook for few minutes. Keep them crunchy do not overcook them. Add salt, dried parsely and chilli flakes and mix nicely.
- Make small lemon sized balls from the dough. Roll out each ball into thin round Chapatis/Rotis ~7u201d in diameter.Heat a griddle/tava and lightly roast the tortilla on both sides for about a minute or so. The tortillas should not become brown, just roast for a few seconds.Place each warm tortilla on a flat surface. Put the Salsa over it and spread evenly. Add some veggie filling and spread it too. Place the Paneer slice at the centre. Top it with the shredded cabbage, sour cream and grated cheese. Sprinkle red chilli flakes and dried parsley and roll the tortilla firmly. Use some milk if required to seal the edges. Seal the bottom on one side of the tortilla to give it a pocket like shape( Its easier to eat that way)Grill the Paneer Salsa Rolls in the oven for ~ 10 minutes from all sides. Serve hot
Your wraps look great. I will try this over the weekend. I have all the items in the fridge except tortillas. I will go get them from the store.
chef Rocker says
make a paste of corriander and garlic and add to the flour before you make the dough.

Thanks a lot for the recipe. I am a father of two and i love cooking for them.
I had this when i visited Ahmedabad it was great. I followed your recipe and the wrap came out great (A BIG THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US IN PHILLY)except the paneer did you mean cornflour as in cornstarch or corn flour(masa harina)mine came out a bit chewy not soft inside any suggestions
Yes!!!! it worked. I shallow fried it at a high temp and it worked so many thanks
Instead of using paneer, try compressed tofu, the kind with much of the water squeezed out. No coating necessary. Just cut into strips and fry on medium in sesame oil if you have it.
thanks a great receipe n looks great 2
