    1. Hi Asha,

      The translucent sheet is called Silpat. It is a non-stick rectangle that you place in baking sheets so that things like cookies don’t stick to the pan. In this case, we were just protecting our cutting board – no real use.

  5. Hi!!

    This is an amazing quick fixer upper, and for the vegetarians, I recommend using pesto as a dressing/spread, it taste amazing!!

    Pesto: food process basil, garlic, little bit of olive oil and some pine nuts (any nuts taste good).

  11. I am just going to send my kid (a very picky eater who won’t even touch anything that is remotely green) to your home, maybe you can make him eat your wonderful cooking.

  12. Thanks for the wonderful ideas. Quick question, where did you get the oil container you are usingin he video to pour oil on the skillet.

    1. Isn’t it fantastic? We just love it…we got it a while back at a kitchen specialty store but recently have seen it at Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond…
      Hope you can find it!

  13. Hi hetal & Anuja,

    Happy new year & hope ALL IZ WELL….


  14. Thanks for the tips ladies! I woke up this morning (start of school semester) and started getting flummoxed onn what to send in to school for lunch! Great idea.

  15. Hi,
    This is a good one. I make it a little different. Put the chapatis on the tava. Cook it lightly on both the sides (until you have light brown dots). Smear little butter on both sides. To one side, pour little beaten egg. Smear it on the chapati(one side only). Egg will cook lightly due the hot chapati. Put some filling of your choice (dry – mutton / chicken keema or veggies)on the same side & close the chapati in the middle. The softness of the egg will make it stick. You can make it as a roll also. It tastes wonderful as well.

  16. Thanks Hetal and Anuja,

    I have never packed lunch from refregrated items.
    I either cook something simple in the morning or they eat school lunch.
    These wraps seems to be easy and simple for lunch. Since the kids eat lunch around 12 pm. will these tortillas and meat stay good that long outside? pls let me know. Thanks

  17. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    First of all a very happy 2010 to you and your family!!

    Thanks a ton for this wonderful recipe. I was just wondering what I can pack for lunch for my son…this is such a fantastic idea. I am surely going to try this.

    Thanks again!
