paneer tikka wraps / indian burritos

I just love these paneer tikka wraps ,and its one of my all time favourite dish ,i have used here ready store bought tortillas as had huge number of people in my daughter's birthday party but usually i make the tortillas at home which is more palatable ,sorry again for bad photography and not even one close up pic.and bad presentation ..was really tied up that day.I also love the proper mexican burritos but this indian flavoured paneer tikka wraps are simply unbeatable.These wraps are on their way to  divya from dilse ,who is hosting this month's global kadai - indian flavoured -burritos event which was started by cilantro.

1 cup paneer cubes
1/4 cup thick hung curd

1 tsp red chilli pwd
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp chaat masala
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1chopped green chillies
1 finely chopped onion
2 tbsp finely chopped capsicum
