Multi-Grain Veg Wraps

              What would you typically do on a holiday when the weather's too good to be indoors?? You go on a picnic!! :) Little else gets one going than the idea of spending a day out with family and/or friends and come back energized. Now... that's the fun part. The concerning part? Food!! 
              If the place we are headed to has good food options, problem solved, pack your bags!! But if it doesn't? Or if the family has young kids or elders who cannot risk it with outside food? That's when the challenge of an ideal picnic basket emerges. But trust me, a little planning and creativity can still keep the fun alive in all of this. 
Here's a healthy suggestion that would be a hit with young and old alike. Also ties in with the #PicnicTheme for our 36th #FoodieMonday #Bloghop


Veg wraps/ Rolls
For the Roti:
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Flax seeds meal - 1/4 cup
Soya flour - 2-3 tbsps
Salt to taste

Filling :
Diced Bell peppers - 1 cup
Broccoli and/or cauliflower florets (wash and blanch them with turmeric powder and drain before use)
Paneer cubes - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp

Mayo spread :
Mayonnaise -  4 tbsps (you can use the Eggless and flavoured varieties too, now available in markets. If using a pre-flavoured one, skip the following ingredients)
Chili flakes - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala or any masala of choice - 1/4 tsp

To serve :
Fresh cabbage, julienne
Onion, sliced
Tomato ketchup

1. Prepare a soft dough using the ingredients and sufficient water. Keep aside covered for about 5-7 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add cumin seeds and let splutter. Tip in the bell peppers, sprinkle salt and saute. After about 5 minutes, add the blanched Broccoli, cauliflower, paneer cubes, garam masala, mix and let cook for 5 minutes more. We need the veggies only half-done.
3. Meanwhile, prepare the rotis and keep aside. Do not apply any butter or ghee on them. Mix together the ingredients for the Mayo spread and keep aside. If using a pre-flavoured Mayo or Cheese spread, use as is.

4. When ready to assemble, warm the rotis one at a time. Transfer to a plate, apply the Mayo or cheese spread. Apply a moderate quantity so that the roti doesn't become soggy. Place the vegetables along side one corner, add some fresh cabbage and sliced onions and roll. 

5. Wrap in butter paper or foil sheet and pack as desired. Serve with tomato ketcup or chutney of choice. 

Note : If serving at home, brush the wraps with very little butter or oil and grill before serving.
