Straight from the kitchens of punjab, curd-marinated paneer topped with makhani gravy is perfectly complemented by the earthy spices and herbs, which are in turn mellowed with fresh cream! in addition to the authentic makhani sauce, this wrap also features salads and mayonnaise, which impart an interesting fusion touch to it.
