- Stir in peas, currants, and parsley.

There were quite good and easy to make. My husband and I did think the quartered potatoes were a bit large for using in wraps -- I think I'd dice them a little smaller next time. I made half a recipe for the 2 of us, and we each made one wrap, then just ate the rest over the rice with some of the sour cream and a little Trader Joe's India Relish. Plain yogurt would work well with this too (instead of the sour cream). Thanks for the interesting recipe!
Tasty and easy to make. I am so happy that you had instructions for making this without oil. I would have done it anyway, but it's nice to see it in a recipe. I used fat free plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Next time I would serve without the rice- just personal preference. This reminded me of samosas- a samosa wrap. Thanks for posting!
