Wrapped…Tomato Flavoured Mixed Veggies

P1020226 Hi friends.
I am so grateful to all my blogger friends who took time to drop by and wish me on my 100th post and  I am also happy that my event has  started off..and have started getting entries for my event.Smile
After an elaborate Biryani  I thought of posting something very colourful, tasty, healthy and very quick to make recipe. Honestly speaking I love eating wraps and my craze for them started during our stay in Mumbai. I must say Mumbai offers the best wraps that I have tasted so far and that too at a reasonable rate….
I had a few exotic veggies lying in my fridge and I even had a few chapatis asking me to use them…so I thought of making an interesting filling with the veggies,  wrap them in my chapatis and use my panini grill to grill them. End result was an extremely tasty, externally crisp and internally crunchy wrap. I have used my regular chapatis but one can use the tortillas or any other kind of bread. This stuffing can be used as a side dish or can be used as a filling for sandwich too…
Ingredients for the tomato sauce
2-3 tomatoes pureed
2-3 garlic crushed
2 tsp oil
2 green chilies chopped
1/2 tsp chilli pwd/ paprika
1/4 tsp garam masala
1 tsp chaat masala
salt to taste
Ingredients for the veggie mix
2 tsp butter
1 small broccoli cut into florets
1 onion chopped
quarters of green, yellow and red capsicum cut into thin fingers
6-7 babycorn cut into oblong slices
6-7 mushroom quartered
salt to taste
and freshly ground black pepper as per taste
Other ingredients
some butter for toasting
chaat masala to sprinkle
and an onion sliced
Method
How do we make the tomato sauce?
Heat oil add crushed garlic, once it turns light brown in colour add the green chilies followed by the tomato puree and cook. Add salt, paprika, chaat masala and garam masala. Let the sauce thicken.
What do we do with veggies?
Blanch broccoli, babycorn and mushroom one by one and remove them in  colander so that excess water can be removed.
Take a pan and heat butter and saute the onions. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and then tip in the veggies one by one and toss them for a minute. Now mix them in the tomato sauce. Ensure that the sauce covers the veggie nicely but at the same time also check that it’s not watery..  Filling is ready.
How to make the wrap?
Take the chapati and keep the filling in the centre and spread it vertically  till the edges. Put some onion slices and sprinkle some chaat masala (One can also add cheese at this stage, I avoided that as I wanted the tomato flavour to dominate in my mouth). Fold in the wrap as shown in the pics below and then apply some butter and grill them till crisp. Cut it into halves and serve.

These wraps do not need any dips or chutneys and are quite tasty themselves… So just grab and eat.Thumbs-up  It can be an ideal snack for kids and at the same time  a very filling and healthy brunch too.

Dear Preeti grilling surely makes the wrap more crispy.
Thank you friends.
