CRISPY PANEER SALSA WRAP
My last recipe was Red Velvet Cup Cakes, which is still loved in the younger generation. When I served it as a desert on my dining table, everyone was glowing in excitement other than my dad. He being ‘not-so-much’ of a sweet-tooth was glad that I tried my hands on something that was loved by the entire family. But I didn’t like the hidden disappointment on his face.
That too when Fathers’ Day is a recent topic; So I decided that this time I am going to make something that I can dedicate to my father’s taste buds. After all, they don’t call me the “daddy’s little princess” out of nothing. J
So here’s my special recipe for my Daddy Dearest – Crispy Paneer Salsa Wrap
