spciy veggie wrap

Now a days my hubby is very busy in his office....many days not able to have his lunch I decided to make him eat something.....then i got a idea of preparing these wraps for his lunch box.......because its easy to eat while working.........

I have followed very easy and health method for preparing these easy to prepare and easy and tasty to eat.....


1 cups wholewheat flour+extra for dusting
warm Water( as required)
Salt to taste
2 tsp vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
Chilly powder 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder 1tsp

For filling:
Vegetables I have used is--(can use our fav veg)
Carrot, Baby corn, Broccoli, cauliflower,
pickled olive and pickled green chilly(cut them in to 2-3)
Red chilly sauce
salt as per taste
lemon juice 1tsp
Crushed pepper powder 1/2tsp

How to prepare:


Put the flour ,chilly powder ,coriander powder and salt into a bowl.Add oil to it,mix them well.
Now add the water and mix to a stiff dough, knead well until the dough feels firm and elastic.

Turn onto a floured board, shape the dough into 4-5 equal part. Roll out in circle shape.

Heat the heavy frying pan and when hot, cook for about one minute on either side.

Cool between paper towels, and keep aside.


Wash and cut the vegetables cook in microwave for about 4-5 mins,keep aside for 5-6 min.

Once the vegetables are cool add all other ingradents to it and mix well.

Now keep the wrap in a flat board ,put 2-3 TBSP of filling,

first fold should be from lower side

then fold the other 2 side...

Then wrap them in the tissue paper.....ready to eat...........

and I have tried one more method on the other day.....

All other method same for filling as well as for wrap dough....only the thing is I rolled the dough in rectangle shape like below.....

First roll the dough ball in circle shape(make small circle).Now apply some butter ghee(or sunflower oil) on it and fold it like below(by doing this, it will be more soft...

Now roll this in a rectangle shape(by dusting in between)

Now heat the tava an cook both the sie properly.....keep asie for 5-6 mins.......Once it is cool use the same above method for preparing wrap......

The Wrap is ready to eat.......

Just wrap it with a silver foil sheet..........yummy wrap....
