Red Beans & Spinach Wraps

Wraps are famous in most parts of the world in several flavors. In India, red beans or kidney beans along with spinach leaves in a wrap or roll is a favorite snack for school going kids.

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients for Red Beans & Spinach Wraps :

Sunflower Oil – 2 tsp

Onions (finely chopped) – 2 medium sized

Garlic (crushed) – 4 cloves

Ginger (grated) – 1 inch piece

Tomatoes (finely chopped) – 2 medium sized

Salt – to taste

Red Chilli powder – ½ tsp

Turmeric – ¼ tsp

Spinach (finely chopped) – 2 cups

Red/Kidney Beans (boiled) – 1 cup

Indian Flat Bread ( Roti/Chapati) – 4

Lettuce Leaves – 4


(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.

Fresh Take on the Recipe:

You may add finely chopped vegetables like bell peppers/capsicum, carrots and peas for making the recipe more nutritious and flavorful. You may also add tomato sauce or chilli sauce for enhanced taste.
