RECIPE: SLOPPY JOE [BEAN WRAP]

This is a classic American dish; I saw it on Jamie Oliver. Jamie Oliver is one of the first cooking shows I started following. Back in college days I used to watch the show as I found him very hot, but thanks to that, I learnt a lot about various cooking styles and also about  various international cuisines.

The original version had meat in it, so I have made a vegetarian version of it.

This recipe is a very good change form a regular lunch; it has got roti, sabji and salad thus, is a complete indian meal in its self.

INGREDIENTS:

[Serves 2]

1 onion chopped

1 green capsicum chopped

1 cup tomato puree

2 tbsp cider vinegar [if you have regular just 1 tbsp]

1 ½ tbsp brown sugar

½ tsp mustard powder

1 to 2 tbsp chili powder [accordingly]

2 cups of red kidney beans, soaked overnight and boiled [ I use the Kashmiri rajma]

1 tsp freshly ground pepper

4 whole wheat wraps [or regular rotis] or 4 burger buns

2 cups chopped salad of your choice or lettuce

1 tbsp olive oil

 

METHOD:

In a non stick pan heat the oil, add the onions, capsicum cook till the vegetables are soft.

Add the tomato puree, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard powder, chili powder, beans, black pepper and salt. Cook till the sauce thickens.

Make sure you taste the sauce as it cooks cause there should be a balance of flavors of sweet[from sugar], sour [from the vinegar], mustard and spicy [from the chili].

To serve:

In a wrap or in a burger bun put the beans mixture. Top it up with salad. Cheese can also be added if you want.
