Split green gram wrap

Sample this easy-to-make wrap which can be called a fine substitute for our good old roti. It tastes best with an okra filling but you can opt for other vegetable or meat-based fillings


One cup split green lentils
One green chilli
One teaspoon salt
One teaspoon olive oil
ENO fruit salt or baking soda (a pinch)
Three fourth cup of mineral water (for soaking the lentil)


1.Wash lentil with tap water and use your hands to rub it, discard its water three to four times .

2.Now use mineral water for soaking it.

3.Soak it for almost two to three hours

4.Later, add green chilli and salt in soaked lentil

5.Take a clean and dry blender, pour the soaked lentil in it and blend it for a minute. The batter need not be too runny nor thick.

6.Pour out the batter in a dish and keep aside.

7.Grease a non stick medium sized pan and turn to medium flame.

8.Meanwhile add a pinch of baking soda in the lentil batter. Some people even add a pinch of Eno. Beat well with a hand beater and start spreading it on a hot greased pan.

9.Once the wrap starts getting separated from sides, it is ready to be flipped.

10.Cook for another minute and turn off the flame.

11.You can fill it with raw veggies/cooked okra or grill chicken.
