  • 1 - small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup - frozen peas
  • 10 - flour tortillas
  • 4-5 tbsp - flour mixed with water to a paste (sealant)
  • 1 cup - cooked boneless meat/chicken, chopped
  • 2 tbsp - chaat powder
  • 4 tbsp - cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp - Butter
  • Salt and pepper - to taste
  • How to Make Tort-Ds:

    1. In a kadai, heat 2-3 tbsp oil and fry the onions.
    2. Add the spices and fry well for a minute, followed by the peas, meat, salt and pepper.
    3. Cook covered, for 2 minutes and then simmer, open, until dry.
    4. Cool to room temp.
    5. Take a tortilla at a time and put a tbsp of the veg/meat mixture on it.
    6. Rub some flour-paste onto the edges and fold the tortilla in half, pressing the edges to seal well.
    7. Repeat for the remaining tortillas and veg/meat mixture.
    8. Heat 1 tbsp butter in a pan and roast the tortillas on both sides for 30 secs each (to brown and crisp it a bit).
    9. Repeat with the rest (do 2-3 at a time if the size of the pan permits).
    10. Serve with ketchup or any sauce/chutney of your choice.
