Lentil Curry with Chapatti

Corn and Onion Tortilla Wrap

This wholesome wrap is easy to prepare and pack for lunch. Crispy red onions, soft golden corns, diced bell pepper, sliced carrots and sun-dried tomatoes filled in soft whole grain tortilla are sure to satisfy your taste buds and keep you healthy. It is a good idea to roast these vegetables rather than shallow frying them to avoid the intake of excess oil. Adding some shredded cheddar, red pepper sauce and garlic powder would enhance the taste further. This is one preparation that can even be had on your desk if you do not have enough time to head to the cafeteria for lunch.

Raisins, almonds, cloves and mayonnaise are added to enhance its taste. It tastes even better when had with whole wheat bread.
