Curried vegetable wraps are an important part of Indian cooking. They are eaten as side dishes in folded pastry and are baked or folded into flatbreads like chapatti or other wraps. Using fresh green herbs such as cilantro or mint adds both flavor and color. Although ground cumin can be used, cumin seeds provide a stronger flavor.

Roti / Chapati is a popular Indian flatbread made with white and wheat flour, water, and oil. The dough is baked on a traditional Tawa, and since it is extremely thin, it was named handkerchief (rumali) bread. Some say that the bread got its name because it was used instead of a handkerchief after a meal. Roti is typically served as an accompaniment to various curries or with any sort of liquid meal that can be scooped up with the flatbread. It is important to serve the bread slightly moist so that it does not become stiff and unpalatable. Although it has origins in the Mughal cuisine, today it is mainly consumed in North India and Pakistan.

Tell me, how can I improve this recipe? Your opinion is very important.
Boil the potatoes and veggies
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Add the potatoes and cook 10 to 15 minutes. They should still be firm. Remove from the water and let cool. Meanwhile, cut the Serrano chili in half, seeds removed and discarded, then mince it. Dice the onion and finely chop the cilantro.
Prepare the mixture
Heat the oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. When it is hot, add the cumin, onion, and chili. Sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Fold in potato cubes and turn them to coat with the oil and cumin/onion mixture.
Prepare the yogurt mixture
In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, turmeric, cayenne, and coriander. Fold the yogurt mixture into the potatoes. Season with cilantro and salt.
Put the Curried Potatoes mixture in Chapati
Heat a wrap in the oven or on a hot griddle or in a hot, dry frying pan. Remove wrap from heat. Place 1/2 cup of the curried potato mixture in the center of the wrap and spread it out into a row. Add several whole cilantro sprigs. Fold two sides over partway so that the body of the wrap is about 3 inches in width. Starting from the bottom, fold the end up about 3 inches, and then turn, or wrap, it over and over until you are at the other edge. Place that edge on the bottom. Repeat for all wraps! Enjoy!
