  2. Add chopped cabbage, green chillies, ginger, ground cumin, and kashmiri chilli powder. Mix well.

  3. Stir in yogurt and mint powder. Mix well until everything is combined.

  4. Adjust salt to taste and consistency using more yogurt or water, as desired.

To Assemble the Wrap

  1. Gently heat the Lavasa bread or plain wrap over medium heat in a pan until it becomes warm and pliable.

  2. Spread a spoonful of prepared chutney on the wrap.

  3. Place a spoonful of warm mashed peas over the chutney in the centre of the wrap and roll it up.

  4. Masala Tchot is ready to eat. Enjoy!
