These Flourless Lentil Carrot Tortillas are absolutely delightful and nutritious in every way. Its easy to make and yet deliciously satisfying.
I would like to call these tortillas even though these are not traditional tortillas and most probably it would be served as flat breads for many of us.
We eat quite a bit of tortilla and that too regularly. It adds to the variety of food especially after a long tiring day. It’s good to see the table full of a variety of healthy food items.
This is my homemade tortilla, Flourless Lentil Carrot Tortillas. I came up with this tortilla recipe without any flour to reduce little carb consumption in our diet.
That doesn’t mean that we should not eat carbohydrates at all but sometimes a little change and tweak in our healthy diet makes our body flexible and healthy in the long run.
Cutting on the carbs now and then is beneficially in many ways including the benefit of saving on calories.
I decided to add lots of protein to my tortilla. And so red lentils were the main ingredients in this recipe and to add some vegetables we chose carrots.
I had two reasons to choose carrots, first because Yashvi loves carrots and secondly carrots brought a wonderful color to my tortillas along with immense nutrition.
How to make Flourless Lentil Carrot Tortillas
After seasoning the lentils and carrots batter I made round shapes of the batter on the prepared cookie sheet and placed it in the preheated oven. No babysitting was required and while my homemade Flourless Lentil Carrot Tortillas were baking.
I quickly fixed up some vegetables and curries to pair with these tortillas. It’s a no stress tortilla recipe because the tortillas don’t have to be a perfect round shape and no rolling is required which gives a more rustic look 🙂
These tortillas are so versatile that it goes with any cuisine. Can be consumed as wraps or goes very well with curries. Yashvi ate them as is and couldn’t stop yumming 🙂
These tortillas can be made ahead of time and can be stored in an air tight casserole at the room temperature. But my recommendation would be to consume immediately because of its crispy texture. Enjoy!!!!

- Spoon the batter in a mixing bowl and fold in rest of the ingredients.Mix the soft dough with your hands to mix all the ingredients properly.

Now place the ball on the prepared cookie sheet and with your palm press it evenly into a thin round shape. (Do not let it break). Spray a little cooking spray on the tortilla before placing them in the oven to retain its moisture. Repeat this process for the rest of the dough

Hi tried your recipe but mine a pretty dry. Did you add any liquid at all?
Hi, Thank you for trying this recipe. These tortillas would be dry or else it wont bake from inside and taste raw. when you grind soaked lentils they form a soft batter which has to dry up while baking. Hope this helps.
These tortillas look AMAZING!!! I will definitely have to try this out sometime!

Mind blown. Never thought of making lentil tortillas.
Can I make them on skillet inplace of oven ? Just like Indian traditional Roti?
Hi Garima, If you make it on a skillet, don’t roll because the batter will be thick bread batter. Heat the skillet very well and grease it little extra. Spread the batter with a spoon just like we spread the batter for pancake but for these totillas spread a thin batter, not very thick. Then, cover and cook because we want to provide heat to these tortillas from all sides. After few minutes check if its cooked. If you feel the top of the tortillas still needs little cooking, gently flip it to the other side and cook covered again for few minutes. In skillet these tortillas would need babysitting. Hope these tips are helpful and you like this recipe.
These look amazing!!! I want to try these tonight!!!
These sounds great – I like the addition of almond meal!
Was wondering how well they wrapped around food? They look and sound delicious and great way to use up some carrots I have on hand.
Hi Candy, these tortillas wont wrap around food 3 folds but wrap enough to serve as a flatbread sandwich.
Oooh I love the idea of flourless tortillas. Will have to try out this recipe.
Thank you Rosie.
