Rajma Roti Wrap / Red Kidney Beans Roti Wrap

I love roti rolls / wraps as they are fun to have at times when bored of eating rotis with a curry. What better way to add nutrition to the already nutritious whole wheat rotis? yes..it is adding legumes and here I have used red kidney beans. They are a good source of cholesterol lowering fiber, protein, iron and Vitamin K. These rolls are best enjoyed when served hot. So go ahead and give it a try.


Rajma Roti Wrap / Kidney Beans Roti Wrap Recipe



  • 4 whole wheat rotis / chapatis
  • 1.5 cups rajma / red kidney beans
  • 1 onion, large
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchur powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • A few coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste


For the rajma filling

  • Soak rajma overnight and the next day, pressure cook it till it turns soft
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and when they change color, add chopped onions and ginger-garlic paste
  • Saut√© till the onions turn brown
  • Now add chopped tomatoes and fry for a couple of minutes
  • Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder and coriander powder
  • Fry till the tomatoes get mashed and the raw smell goes
  • Then add the cooked rajma and cook for 3-4 minutes
  • Finally sprinkle amchur powder and garam masala powder and add the chopped coriander leaves, mix well and turn off the heat

For assembling the wrap

  • Just before serving, heat a roti on a gridle / tava for a few seconds
  • Remove from gridle. Place a little of the filling in the middle of the roti and roll the roti tightly to form the wrap
  • Serve hot with a tissue or butter paper wrapped on the lower portion of the roti
