But this time what I will share with you is a nutritious and yummy recipe which not only tastes good but looks good and give something new to your kids.

Here is the Desi Tortilla Wrap recipe:

  1. Tortilla Wraps. You can get it from any grocery store.
  2. Rajma or Kidney Beans. Boiled nicely.
  3. Chopped Onions
  4. Roughly Chopped Tomatoes. We want them in the bite so don't chop them finely.
  5. Paneer cut in small cubes.
  6. Spinach - blanched.
  7. Salt and Pepper.
  8. Dried Mixed herbs
  9. Dhaniya power and Garam Masala.
  10. Mayonnaise

  1. First we will prepare the stuffing. For this, heat some oil in the pan and add chopped onions.
  2. Cook them till they turn translucent.
  3. Add salt, pepper and Dhaniya powder and cook for 3-4 more minutes till you see the masala releasing oils.
  4. Now add the mixed herbs and tomatoes. Cook them for a while but not too much as you don't want tomatoes to go pulpy.
  5. Now, add the chopped spinach and cook it for 2 minutes.
  6. Now add the boiled Rajma and let it cook for few minutes. Ensure you do strain rajma very well before adding it in as you do not want any water in this.
  7. In the last one minute of cooking, add the paneer.Give it a stir.
  8. Sprinkle some Garam Masala and voila, your stuffing is ready.
  9. Now slightly heat the Tortilla wrap on tawa. You just need to heat it and not cook it.
  10. Place it on a chopping board, apply some mayonnaise for that extra creamy tastse and put the stuffing in and make a roll.
  11. Here you go, your desi version of Tortilla Wrap is ready. Trust me, it won't take much time and your kids will thank me. LOL.
