Method

Step 1

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add the lard/shortening which is kept in room temperature. Rub in the shortening with your finger tips until you get a flaky crumb like texture to your dough.

Step 2

Slowly add the water and mix well until well incorporated. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Cover the dough with a cling film and set it aside for an hour.

Step 3

Divide the dough into many lemon sized balls. On a slightly floured surface, roll out the tortilla for desired thickness. Heat a pan and cook the tortillas on each side until lightly golden. Set the tortillas aside.

Step 4

Take a small bowl and combine red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, coriander powder,salt and garlic powder. Add a tbsp of water to make a paste and toss the paneer in and gently rub in the spice paste.

Step 5

Heat a pan and add oil. Toss in the paneer and cook them under low flame until slightly crisp.

Step 6

Place the tortilla on a plate and spread a good amount of garlic mayonnaise. Now place a small portion of paneer. Add the onion and bell pepper slices. Roll it up tightly. Wrap a tissue paper around and serve hot.
