Ingredients:
4 Flour Tortillas
Vegetarian Refried Beans (or cooked rajma)
Shredded Yellow Cheese
4 tbsp Salsa
2 tsp oil
Chopped Vegetables for the filling –
Onions
Shredded Carrot
Spinach
Raw Mango
Bell Pepper
Avocado
Moongdal Sprouts

Method
Take a saucepan and heat the oil. Saute the onions till light pink and soft, then lower the heat and add the Refried Beans. Mix in the Salsa, and heat the mixture for a couple minutes

Heat the Flour Tortillas in a pan or MicroWave one at a time. Remove the tortilla and place it in a plate or say an aluminum foil. Spread a layer of the bean mixture, top it with your choice of chopped vegetables and avocado, then cover it wit a generous helping of the cheese, and some more salsa if you like. Wrap or Roll the Tortilla tightly, insert a toothpick in the center to hold it, or cut into 2 pieces diagonally.

Repeat with all the other tortillas. Right before serving (but before cutting into pieces), reheat them in the microwave for 2 minutes so that the cheese melts and the vegetables become soft.

Serve the vegetable wrap instantly with a dipping sauce or Yogurt Raita. A perfect healthy meal for your kids, loaded with vegetables and yet tasty to eat!
