  • In a bowl mix flour and salt. Add 1 tablespoon curd, 1 tablespoon oil and mix well. Add water to make a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  • Now heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan.
  • Add onion, ginger and garlic. Saute for 1 minutes.
  • Add carrot, beet root, beans, bell pepper, cabbage, green chili and salt. Mix well and cover for 3 minutes.
  • Remove the cover and add mashed potato, black pepper powder, garam masala and chat masala. Mix well and cook in high flame till the mix for 4 minutes or till all the water from the veggies are gone. Stir occasionally.
  • Turn off the heat. Add coriander leaves, lemon juice and mix well.
  • Heat a tawa.
  • Take the dough and divide into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into balls. Roll each ball into a 6-inch diameter circle. Sprinkle little flour if needed while rolling.
  • Place the circle on the tawa in medium heat. Flip it after 30 seconds. Spread 1 teaspoon oil over it. Flip again and spread little oil in other side too. Using a flat spatula, press the circle so it becomes crispy. Flip and cook until both side has golden brown spots (not black).
  • Take out and place it on a wooden board. Spread ¼ tablespoon green chutney on the circle / roti. Now add 1 tablespoon of the cooked veg stuff in one vertical edge. Add little onion, green chili, cucumber and spread little tomato sauce. Fold ½-inch from both the horizontal edges and start rolling the roti pushing the stuffs tight.
  • Or else, just add all the stuff in the middle vertical line of the roti and fold both edges, one top of another and press gently.
  • Serve or cut into 2 pieces and serve.
