Easy Veggie Wraps

This is a recipe i picked up from my mom....as kids we loved these wraps (and still do!). Usually, mom ran out of wraps because we ate so many of them - but the instant batter was a quick rescue.

The wraps can be a perfect snack or a meal in themselves - and you can stuff them with the veggies of your choice. So...enjoy!



For the Filling

1 medium size -  onion, finely chopped
2 medium size - carrots, chopped and boiled
1 cup - potatoes, peeled, chopped and boiled
1 cup - french beans, chopped
1/3 cup - red pepper, finely chopped
5-6 pieces - curry leaves (optional)
1 tbsp - sunflower oil + a little oil to make the wraps
1/4 tsp - mustard seeds
1 tsp - garam masala
2 tsp - cumin powder
1 1/2 tsp - dried mango powder (amchur)
1/4 cup - coriander leaves, finely chopped
salt to taste
paste of 2-3 - cloves of garlic, 2 inch piece - ginger, 2 - green chillies (adjust according to yr taste)

For the wrap batter 

1/2 cup - all purpose flour (maida)
1/2 cup - semolina (suji)
1/4 tsp - salt
1 cup + 2 tbsp - water 

Method 

For the wrap batter -  Add all the ingredients for the batter in a bowl and mix well until smooth ( the batter should have a semi thick flowing consistency, very similar to dosa batter)

For the Filling - 
  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick pan, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the seeds splutter, add the paste, onions, red pepper and cook until onions are golden brown.
  2. Add the boiled vegetables and the rest of the ingredients and cook for 2 - 3 minutes.


How to make the wraps 

  1. Heat a non stick pan, pour a ladleful of batter on the centre of the pan and spread it in a circular motion, add a few drops of oil and cook on a medium heat, only on one side, until you see some brown spots. Place the filling in the centre and fold from both the ends. Turn and cook again for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Serve hot with coriander chutney, tomato ketchup or any dip of your choice

Have a great Weekend and Enjoy!
