Paneer Taco ~ Indian Mexican Fusion

Paneer taco is an Indian Mexican fusion food made with grilled or cooked paneer cubes with some

 taco seasoning and stuffed in taco along with spicy tomatillo salsa. Paneer is prepared similar to

 paneer tikka but instead of adding tikka masala I have added taco seasoning. Home made Tomatillo

 salsa and taco seasoning gives very nice flavor and  Mexican touch to the tacos. 

These street style Tacos are just perfect  for any parties or a weekend dinner if you want to have

 something different. This fusion dish is a big hot in our family, why not try it out once to impress

 your family and friends as well.
