200g mince meat (lamb or beef, I used lamb)
6 tbs tomato sauce
6 tbs bbq sauce
2 tbs tomato paste
salt, pepper, mixed spice
1/4 large lettuce
5 roti parathas – I started buying a 2kg bag of frozen roti paratha because it takes too long to make it!
Cover the base of a large pan on high heat with salt, pepper, spice and paprika. Add the mince meat and break up so that it is evenly coated. Add the sauces and tomato paste and stir. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir occasionally.
Place another large pan on high heat. Take one roti and place it in the centre of the pan. There is no need to grease the pan – however this depends on the type of roti you are using.
The ones I use are frozen and are to be put straight onto a hot pan. Because of this, I press it down, especially in the centre so that it can cook through.
Once in the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and wait a few minutes to cook through.
Flip and repeat the process… Not forgetting to stir the meat occasionally.
By the time you finish doing the five (they do need some time, sadly) the meat would be finished! To double check if yours is done, it should look a bit like this:
Turn off the heat, and begin with the veggies!
Slice the cucumber and grate the carrot. –I used a manual cutter that did my cucumbers and carrots in 10 seconds – I also grated the first carrot, and finely sliced the second–
Roughly chop the lettuce, and the tomato into wedges.
Begin to put together your roti wraps.
First place 2 – 3 tbs of meat in the centre.
Next add lettuce:
Next, add carrot:
Then add tomato:
Place cucumber on top:
Squirt of mayo:
Wrap and …
A perfect addition to this wrap would be cheese! Yum!
