Ingredients for Red Beans & Spinach Wraps :
Sunflower Oil – 2 tsp

(Preparation time: 30 minutes; Serves: 4)
In a non stick pan, pour sunflower oil. When the oil heats up, add onions, garlic, ginger and sauté for about 8 minutes on low heat. Add tomatoes. Now add salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder and let it simmer for another 6 minutes on low heat till oil separates and tomatoes turn tender. Add kidney beans and mix. Cook it covered for 3 minutes till all flavors release and mix well with beans. Now add spinach leaves and cook for another 3 minutes. Keeping the Indian flat bread on a plain surface, line it with a lettuce leaf and pour in some mixture. Lettuce leaf will not let the bread get tender and will keep the crust crisp. Now roll/wrap and keep aside. Make 4 such wraps and then keep these wraps on a warm skillet to turn a little crisp.
