A novel concept of sealing your choice of filling – mixed-vegs/ minced meat/ any leftovers – into a tortilla folded in half  (hence, the ‘D’ in the name) & roasting it.



PrepTime 5mins – Serves 4 – CookTime 10mins


1 small onion – chopped
1 cup frozen peas
8-10 flour tortillas
4-5 tbsp flour mixed with water to a paste (sealant)
1 cup cooked boneless meat/chicken – chopped (or soy meat/tofu/ potatoes-peas, for a vegetarian variety)
2 tbsp spice powder or sauce: chaat/ pav bhaji/ garam masala/ chipotle/ cajun/ tandoori.
cooking oil & butter for frying
salt & pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions:

Heat 2-3 tbsp oil & fry the onions. Add the spice & fry well for a minute, followed by the peas & vegs/meats, salt & pepper. Cook covered, for 2 minutes & then simmer, open, until dry. Cool to room temp.

Take a tortilla at a time & put a tbsp of the veg/meat mixture on it. Rub some flour-paste onto the edges & fold thr tortilla in half, pressing the edges to seal well. Repeat for the remaining tortillas & veg/meat mixture.

Heat 1 tbsp butter in a pan & roast the tortillas on both sides for 30 secs each (to brown & crisp it a bit). Repeat with the rest (do 2-3 a time if the size of the pan permits). Serve with ketchup or any sauce/chutney of your choice.
