Ingredients

  • 2 tsp safflower oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 Indian eggplants, cubed (NOTE: Any type of eggplant can work here; you will need 1½ cups cubed.)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp peeled and grated ginger
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp Madras curry powder
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 whole-wheat roti or whole-wheat tortilla wraps
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Preparation

  1. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add onion and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is softened. Add eggplant and cook, stirring frequently, until eggplant is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, garam masala and curry powder and cook, stirring frequently until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add tomatoes and cook until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until water is almost completely absorbed, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  2. Lay roti on a cutting board and place half of each eggplant mixture and cilantro onto center of each. Fold in 2 sides then roll up. Slice in half, if desired.
