Remove from water and lay them flat. Gently squeeze the water from the leaves making sure not to tear them. Repeat the same for the remaining leaves.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Add asafetida, paneer, carrots and bell pepper, Stir fry until well mixed. Add parsley, coriander leaves, yogurt and salt. Cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
3. Take 2-inch size ball of filling prepared and place on lettuce leaf. Roll the leaf gently ensuring that no filling comes out. When all the lettuce rolls are ready, place them tightly in a single layer in the bottom of a soup pan. Pour just enough water/stock to cover the surface. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 25 minutes. Serve hot.
