  • 15 grams curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 piece salt, to taste

  1. For the Wraps: Whisk all ingredients in a bowl to form a batter.

  10. While the potatoes are boiling, finely chop carrots, cilantro, and cauliflower.
  11. Blanch the chopped vegetables and the green peas for about a minute. Drain.
  12. When, the potatoes are done, transfer them to a bowl and mash.
  13. Fold in the blanched vegetables and chopped cilantro.
  14. Season with aloo bhaji, salt, and pepper.
  15. Lay a piece of the prepared wraps onto a working surface and cut into half.
