This takeout favourite is loaded with the season's best produce. If you can't get your hands on the Indian flatbread roti, simply roll the filling inside large whole wheat tortillas.


  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

  • 2-3 tbsp mild curry powder

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped

  • 4 cups packed baby spinach leaves

  • 1 540 mL can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 large roti, about 15 in (38 cm) wide, or 4 large whole wheat tortillas


  • Heat oil in a medium pot set over medium high. Add curry (using the extra 1 tbsp/15 mL if you prefer a bolder flavour). Stir frequently until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Add onions and cook, stirring frequently until softened, 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach until wilted, about 1 minute.

  • Add chickpeas and frozen peas. Stir occasionally until hot and tender, 3-5 minutes. Stir in honey and salt.

  • Divide filling between roti. Roll up.

  • Slice each in half to make 4 servings. Serve immediately.
