Cabbage rolls, this delectable continental starter is an interesting way to recharge your vitamin a and protein quotient. This dish helps boost immunity and improves the overall sense of well-being. I’ve substantially reduced the calories by using low-fat paneer and baking the rolls instead of frying them.
