Frankie/Rolls/Wraps

Its almost ironical that i am posting about wraps/rolls... Well, the irony lies in the fact that they happen to be 'Chappati' wraps/rolls!! As a kid, i hated chapati.. I guess partly because of its bland taste and i would complain i feel like a cow chewing it for soo long!!! 







Poor mom of mine..coz its was a staple as my dad preferred it..So, she would do something different for me..I loved spicy tangy food way back then and i was called puli bhatter :D (My fav food included puliodharai,vatha kozhambu, molaga kozhambu..)..We still have arguments about my food intake.. However i have chapati every day now, without fuss & i think this wrap will def be a hit with kids too!
The recipe is partly inspired from Showmethecurry.com.. Ideally, when we look at wraps/rolls, its always made of maida/all purpose flour.. I have stuck to our basic chapati, so guess a healthier option too :)


Ingredients
1. Potato - 1 cup 
2. Paneer - 1/2 cup
3. Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
4. Coriander-cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
5. Chat Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp
6. Cilantro - 1tbsp (finely chopped)
7. Lemon Juice - of 1 lime
8. Fennel Seeds/Saunf - 2 tsp
8. Onions - fistful
9. Bell pepper - 2-3 
10. Oil - 2 tsp
11. Chappati - 2-3
12. Green Chutney/Sauce - 1-2 tsp
13, Salt - to taste


Preparation Time!!
1. In a bowl, take the boiled, peeled & grated potato. To this add, the grated paneer

2. To this add chat masala, coriander-cumin powder, chilli powder & salt


3. Mix this well & to this add cilantro & squeeze lime and mix well


4. Take a pan, add oil and once warm, add the mashed mixture and cook for 2 minutes. To this add, long slit onions and cook for a minute.. Maintain the crunchiness! Allow it to cool

5. Take a cooked chappati, spread the green chutney/ sauce all over the chapati, to this add the stuffing, add a few bell pepper (slit long) and wrap tightly


6.Finally, fix a tooth pic to hold the wrap in place! You could use different sauce or a different variation of stuffing..I tried one with Paneer Bhurji too! Go ahead & add cheese too..Personally, i like the one with green chutney better and this potato-paneer stuffing was really tasty!


Enjoy it plain or with sauce..




* You could put raw bell peppers or if you don't like the raw taste like me, lightly toss it the pan, to avoid the rawness but maintain the crunchiness!
** This stuff made me 6 rolls in total... & takes hardly 15 minutes to make, provided you have boiled potatoes :)
