- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup maida
- A generous pinch of salt
- Water as needed to knead the dough
- ½ cup each of julienned cabbage, carrots and beans
- ¼ cup julienned capsicum
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tsp ginger-green chili paste
- ¼ turmeric powder
- Salt to taste
- ¼ tsp dried mango powder
- ¼ tsp garam masala
- ¼ tsp chaat masala
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 small tomato, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 3-4 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- 3-4 tbsp green chutney
- 2-3 tsp lemon juice
- 2-3 tsp chaat masala
In a large bowl, add the wheat flour, maida and salt. Add water slowly to form the dough. Knead the dough nicely and cover. Let it rest for 15 minutes.
In hot water, blanch the beans for 3-4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Heat a pan and add oil. When the oil is heated, add the sliced onion and sauté them for 2 minutes till translucent. Add the ginger-chili paste followed by julienned carrots, cabbage and capsicum and blanched beans. Cook them for 5-6 minutes. When they look cooked, add the spices and seasonings.
Turn off heat. Add the lemon juice and stir once again. Set aside.
Now prepare the roti for the wrap. Make 5-6 even sized balls of the dough. Dust the counter top with some flour and roll the rotis into 6-7” diameter circles.
Heat a tawa and cook the rotis on both sides. Apply a teaspoon of oil on both sides while cook. Do the same with the rest of the dough. Place them in a casserole as you prepare them. This will help in keeping them soft.
To serve, place the roti on a flat surface. Apply green chutney on it in a thin layer.
Place 3-4 tbsp of the filling in the middle. Add chopped tomatoes, sliced onion and chopped coriander leaves. Add a dash of lemon juice and a light sprinkling of chaat masala. Roll it tight to form a wrap.
Cover it with aluminum foil and pack them into your kid’s lunch box.
