Rolls and wraps are fast food – they are unhealthy and packed with calories, cholesterol etc etc. But we can make it healthy, can’t we. I am making a very healthy quick roll/wrap with fenugreek leaves! Ain’t that interesting?

This is perfect for an evening snack or even the perfect wrap for your lunch box at work or for your kids.


Fenugreek leaves or methi are a rich source of steroidal saponins that prevent the absorption of cholesterol and triglycerides. (Source)

  • Add enough warm water to make a soft dough
  • Separate the dough in equal sized balls
  • Spread some flour and roll them in discs
  • Brush some oil in a flat pan and cook the ‘parathas’  for 2 minutes on each sides

For Filling
  • Spread the parathas on a plate
  • Line julienned fillings, add seasoning and squeeze little lime and make a wrap
  • You are good to go
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup!


If you are greasing with a pastry brush, it will take very little oil
You can use just about anything in the filling – bell peppers, corns, paneer, tofu, shredded roasted chicken – go ahead and add your imagination!

Enjoy a good healthy breakfast.

Until next time, Cheers!
