Black Eyed Peas Salad

This is a popular salad among my friends especially for a takeout lunch. Often I use this salad to make a wrap that makes for a very satisfying lunch. To make a wrap I use tortillas or left over plain parathas.  Simply spread the hari cilantro chutney over tortillas or parathas and put about 1/4 cup of salad length wise leaving about 1 inch from the top and fold it tightly like burrito.

  1. I see some similarities with my lunch box ideas. Although in general I try to limit eating bread – many times when I had no time to prepare something more complex and have no leftovers from the day before wholemeal bread or sourdough with hummus and fresh vegetables saved my life. And yoghurt rice sounds really intriguing! – I have already bookmarked it.
