Veggie Wrap

One fine morning, while having my cup of tea, I just started thinking was there any day in my life without a cup of rice or a few roti/chapthi? And the answer is a big Noooooo.Though I was eating everyday why wasn't that boring to me? I think ,its not just because they are staple food in India but the versatile nature and the way they blend with the accompaniments/Side dishes makes them interesting.Do you think I can trade these items for anything else in this world? No way.

Today, to prove its versatility,this humble roti comes in the form of veggie wrap.
