  1. Mix 1 tsp of the chilli sauce with the yogurt and some seasoning, and set side. Brush the paneer cubes with the remaining chilli sauce and roll each cube in the sesame seeds.

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and fry the paneer in batches for 5-8 mins or until golden all over. Turn the cubes frequently, as the seeds can catch easily. Drain on kitchen paper, then serve with the chilli yogurt, carrot, cucumber, lettuce and warm wraps.

My husband and I really enjoyed these! I did use sweet chilli sauce as it's more to our taste, and 50g of sesame seeds were more than enough. I'll be making this fairly regularly, I think. :)

Really enjoyed this recipe. Very simple to do, my partner and I loved it. I did struggle to keep the sesame seeds on the paneer whilst they were frying, despite this I still achieved a good end product. I'll be adding this to my recipe folder.

These were very good. However, if you're only making four wraps, I would say one packet of paneer is enough and cut the cubes smaller to make more cubes. Also, make sure the pan is not too hot when you put the cubes in. The first time I made these, the pan was too hot and the sesame seeds burned very quickly. Also, an extra drizzle of chilli sauce before wrapping made all the difference.
