Tandoori Aloo Wrap - The Wrapped goodness - Step by step

   Tarla Dalal , is a cooking icon, who left us few months back. Her recipes are simple, elegant and unique. I started reading her recipes, very recently. Loved all her creations to the core. This was one of the recipes in her cooking site. When I came through this recipe, it pulled my attention immediately and I made it the same evening.
   Some days Ramesh will be out for some business meets or casual parties. I used to cook, what my palate calls for that day. It can be a simple "spinach curry" or a pepper rice or simple "dal fry". Isn't it so happy to cook, what our tummy calls for? It was one of those days, where Ramesh went for a casual party with his collegues. I made this tandoori aloo wrap and indulged in its taste. Just made 2 wraps, it was filling for me. The wrap has sharp spicyness from the red chillies , chilled curd dressing gives a moistness to the wrap. It was a completely new taste for me. But worth the effort. We can make the filling and curd dressing day ahead . When we are about to assemble, just cook the rotis and fill the rest of the ingredients. 
Ingredients:
For the tandoori aloo:
1.Boiled potato          -       1 (big)
2.Kashmiri Red chillies  -       3
3.Garlic  pods            -        2
4.Cumin powder        -        1/2 tsp
5.Kasoori methi         -         1/4 tsp
6.Cream                     -         2 tbsp
7.Salt                         -          as needed
8.Oil                          -           1 tbsp.
 
For the roti:
1.Wheat flour           -          1/2 cup
2.Salt                        -           as needed
3.Water                     -           as needed
 
For the curd dressing:
1.Whisked curd          -         1/4 cup
2.Chopped garlic        -         1 tsp
3.Chopped  cilantro    -          1 tsp
4.Salt                           -         a pinch
5.Sugar                        -         a pinch
6.Milk                         -           1 tbsp
7.Cumin powder          -         1 tsp
 
For garnishing:
1.Sliced carrots        -      1/4 cup
2.Sliced onions        -       few
  
 
 Method:
Preparing the roti:
 * Take a mixing bowl, add flour,salt and mix it well. Add water little by little and from a loose dough.Let it rese for a while.Mean while, boil potato with a little turmeric powder.
* Divide the dough into equal sized balls. Roll it into a thin roti. Now cook the roti on a tawa. Cook till the roti gets bubbles on both the sides. Don't over cook the rotis , then it will become crisp. don't add any oil. Keep it aside.
 
Preparing the filling:
* Take a blender and grind red chillies with garlic pods.Make it a fine paste. If you want, can sprinkle little water.
 
* Cut the boiled potato into small cubes. Take a pan, add oil , sauté the potatoes ,for a while.

* Now add the grinded paste to the potato and mix it. Cook till it looses its raw smell.

* When the masala is cooked, add cumin powder and mix it.

* Now add the cream and mix it.

* At last add slat and kasoori methi and blend them with the potatoes.Cool the filling completely.


Curd dressing: 
* The dressing can be prepared by mixing, whisked curd, chopped garlic,chopped cilantro,cumin powder,sugar ,salt and milk. Mix them well, till it blends.
 
 
Assembling the wrap:
* Take the rotis and slightlu heat them over a tawa. .Take a plate, place the roti .

* scoop some tandoori aloo and place it on the roti.

* Place some sliced carrots and sliced onions on top. We can also use some sliced cabbage.

* Drizzle some curd dressing on top of the wrap.(Sorry for the blurred picture, I am still working on my new SLR. )




* Fold the roti tightly and pin it using a tooth pick. cover one end with aluminium foil.

Serve with some ketchup. This wrap stays moist for atleast 2 hours because of the dressing. 

 
 
Notes:
* If we don't have cream ,we can just add milk for the aloo.
* sliced cabbage can be replaced with the onions.
* We can make the filling and the dressing on eday ahead. Just cook the roti and assemble the wrap , the day we want.
* I didn't had Kashmiri chillies. So substituted with regular red chillies. If you use Kashmiri chillies, it will give a good red colour.
