  • Medium-sized rotis – 4
  • Green Mung Bean – 2/3 cup (Soak over night and boil until mushy)
  • Sweet Potato Fries – as needed for 4 wraps
  • Homemade sauce – 1 tbsp (or to taste)
  • Coriander powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon Powder – a pinch
  • Fennel seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Crushed Kasoori Methi – 1/4 tsp
  • Kalonji – 1/8 tsp
  • Asafoetida – a pinch
  • Ghee – 1 tsp
  • Shredded Fresh ginger – 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  • Finely chopped Cilantro – 2 tbsp
  • Salt – to taste

Get Started

  • Heat ghee in a pan and add fennel seeds, kalonji, asafoetida and saute for few seconds.
  • Then add the boiled mung beans, salt, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, kasoori methi, cinnamon powder, ginger and cook till the raw smell goes off.
  • Add little water if needed and cook the dhal till it reaches a “bread spread” consistency.
  • Add sauce and mix well. Remove from flame and add cilantro.
  • Take a roti and smear 2 tbsp(or more) of dhal spread and place few sweet potato fries. Roll it up tightly and insert a toothpick to remain sealed or wrap it with an unbleached parchment paper.

Soft Mung dhal spread and crunchy Sweet potato Fries in a wrap is a real healthy treat to kids.

  • I would recommend using fresh roti as it will be soft and flavorful.
  • Make the wrap just before serving. If wrapped way before, fries will loose its crunchiness and the spread will thicken up fast and become dry.
  • Have some raitha as a dip.
  • I used a mixture of whole wheat and Sattu (roasted chickpea) flour with little ajwain to make roti.
  • Replace mung bean with Masoor dhal or French Green Lentil.
  • Sweet Potato pacifies Vata and Pitta but aggravates Kapha.
  • Mung Bean is Tridoshic.(For Kapha in moderation)
