Navratri Special Stuffed Paneer Lettuce Rolls

Paneer is considered nutrient-rich as they serve as good sources of calcium and vitamin D as well as protein and other essential nutrients. They provide phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and vitamin A, B12, and riboflavin. Including a paneer dish during fasting will keep you full for a longer period due to its high satiety value.

Ingredients:

  • Finely chopped garlic- 1 tsp
  • Finely chopped ginger- 1 tsp
  • Finely chopped spring onions- 1 bunch
  • Finely chopped carrots- 2 inch
  • Finely chopped cabbage- 1 katori
  • French beans, roughly chopped- 4 nos.
  • Chopped low-fat paneer- 50g
  • Lime juice- 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli flakes (paprika)- ½ tsp
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Lettuce- 1 large leaf

Method:

For the stuffing:

  • Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai, add the garlic, ginger and onions and sauté on a medium flame till the onions turn translucent. Add the carrots and cabbage, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beans, paneer, lime juice, salt and red chilli flakes, mix gently and cook on a medium flame for a minute.
  • Divide the stuffing into 2 equal portions and keep aside.

For the cover:

  • Wash the lettuce leaves, dry them with a towel and keep aside. Place a lettuce leaf on a clean, dry surface and place a portion of the stuffing along one side of the leaf. Roll it up gently and secure the roll by inserting a toothpick or tie using a spring onion green. Serve immediately.
