Homemade Wraps

Hello everyone! I haven’t had time to continue art studies for now, but I’ll definitely continue as soon as possible. Also the next post will be one of my dream journals 🙂 If I hosted another Random Games contest with the the dragons, would anyone be interested to participate?

This is one of my more complex recipes. It took me a lot of tries and variations to make this pliable wrap that doesn’t crumble when rolled.

The great part about wraps is that the fillers can be different every time. Meat lovers can add more meat, while vegetarians can substitute meat with more beans or something else they prefer. I’ve filled the wraps with rice occasionally instead of beans, for a filling meal. I forgot to take a photo once wrapped, the wrap doesn’t stay wrapped on its own, you can use a toothpick.

This recipe is for 2 people, a total of 4 wraps.

Ingredients

The wraps 
• 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
• 1/2 cup Corn flour (not polenta!)
• 2 tablespoons yogurt
• 75 ml- 100ml water (start with half a coffee cup, add more if needed)
• 1/4cup oil
• Seeds optional (recommended)
• 1 tsp Baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt (flat)
• some melted butter or oil for brushing on top

Filler

• 200g- 250g chicken ( this is around 4 meat cubes per wrap, you can add more if you wish)
• 1/2 medium can of red beans
• optional: 1/2 cup frozen corn (or peas)
• salad: lettuce, cucumber/pickles, tomato,
• ketchup/mayo (or salsa)
• optional spices: curry and spicy paprika

• some sour cream on the side (optional)

Start by making the wrap dough. Combine all of the ingredients and mix with a mixer with spirals or by hand. Do not use whisks as the dough is thick. After mixing knead for couple of minutes till smooth. Cover the dough.

Next season the meat with salt or seasoning mix and cute into cubes. Then fry on medium heat- it takes around 10 mins each side to cook. On a separate pan (or the same as meat, but beans need less time to cook) warm up the beans. I think you can microwave instead but I’ve never tried that before. Use a small pot for frozen corn and set to cook in salted boiling water 10-15 min.

Once beans and meat are done put aside (cover or set on very low heat but don’t forget to turn it off later)

Wash and cut the “salad”

Then set a pancake pan to warm up.

Meanwhile cut the dough into 4 parts and rolling 1 part on a flat lightly floured surface- the thinner the better. Cut a circle, you can use a plate for easier cutting. It should fit the pan. Brush with a bit of butter/oil and put that side on the warm pan. Brush the second side and flip after 2-3 minutes. It should look like photo bellow. While it’s frying, roll the 2nd wrap and so on.

Fill the wrap with all of the “filler” ingredients- meat, beans, salad, ketchup/mayo and additional spices. I like to crush/chop the meat extra, so it’s easier to bite. Serve warm with sour cream on th side.

If anything is unclear please let me know as this was kind of hard to explain 🙂
