Perfect for a quick and tasty snack, I formulated this recipe as a fusion of Indian and Far Eastern flavours as part of my current 'obsession' with wraps.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Press the tofu by wrapping in a clean cloth and placing a weight of at least 5 pounds on top for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove and mash the tofu with a potato masher or fork.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat and briefly fry all the spices, then add the mashed tofu and stir well.
  4. Season with soy sauce and ensure that all the ingredients are well-mixed.
  5. Transfer to a bowl along with the chopped watercress and mix well.
  6. Allow to cool a little.
  7. Lay out a tortilla and place the appropriate fraction of the mixture on the inside.
  8. Spread into a rough circle about two-thirds of the diameter of the tortilla and beginning close to one end.
  9. Begin to roll the tortilla from this end, hold, fold in the sides (about 1½" at the maximum), then continue rolling- the folded-in sides should be held firm.
  10. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, storing loose end down, then cut all the tortillas across in two and serve.
  11. Will keep well overnight if refrigerated.
