I am huge fan of food at go, firstly because it’s easy to gobble up and secondly, of course it looks tempting and delicious. However, with changes in the food trends, food quality in restaurants, hygiene and growing health awareness, we are all witnessing the shift and inclination towards organic food and healthy alternatives from kids to the elders in the family.
In this edition of Global Fashion Street we bring you the healthy–make-at-home alternative for Paneer Wrap much enjoyed by everyone at some of the famous fast food chains.

Step 6: Add one cube of processed cheese or 2 spoons of cheese spread for a cheesy flavour (optional)
Step 7: In case the sauce forms the lump, you can blend it in the mixture once it cools down for smooth textured
Step 1: Cut cottage cheese in the rectangular pieces, grease it with olive oil with a baking brush and grill it on the toaster griller or pan fry it on the non-stick pan till it a golden brown and a little crispy.
Step 2: Medium chop the iceberg lettuce, thin slice onion and tomatoes.
Step 3: Spread the homemade sauce or chipotle sauce on the wrap, spread the chopped lettuce in the middle of the wrap horizontally with 2-3 slices of onion and tomatoes.
Step 4: Arrange the cottage cheese cubes on the veggies and dribble the sauce as per choice on it

You can add your own choice of sauce combinations and vegetables for experimentation. Homemade sauce helps you to skip the additives and preservatives as well as red chilly, especially for those who have medical intolerance towards any of the above mentioned.
