2 tsp (10 mL)vegetable oil

2large soft tortillas
Serves well with
- To a large pot over high heat, add the oil and onions and cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for another minute.
- Then add the crushed bouillon cube and masala seasoning. Cook and stir continuously for 30 - 60 seconds to allow the spices to lightly toast.
- Add the potatoes, carrots, chickpeas, tomatoes, and water. Bring to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked through. Stir periodically.
- To make the garlic tortilla, mix the oil and garlic in a small bowl. Brush the garlic oil on each side of the tortilla and toast in a large pan on medium-high heat for 1 - 2 minutes on each side, or until golden.
- When the potatoes are cooked, add the coconut milk, spinach, and peas. Cook until heated through.
- Serve the curry with the toasted garlic tortillas 'naans', or some rice if desired. Enjoy!
- †Our store-bought roti masala seasoning consists of ground coriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard, nigella, fenugreek, and pepper. If you don't have access to a similar spice blend, simply substitute out for an equal amount of curry powder.
- The curry can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
- The garlic tortilla is best when enjoyed immediately.

Greetings PUL from Gainesville, Georgia U.S.A.
I am at the beginning of my plant based journey and this is my first PUL recipe. It was SO GOOD. After adding the optional cup of coconut milk, I thought the dish needed a little more salt so I added a 1/2 teaspoon - perfection. This is one of the those recipes that gets even more delicious over time as the flavors meld together. It was so satiating that I didn’t feel as though I needed my after dinner sweet - my taste buds were satisfied. Thank you PUL- you have made the plant based life style seem more accessible to this mother of 3 little ones (7, 2, and 4 months). This recipe actually only took me 35-40 minutes as the website listed! Even for a newbie like me. I am so excited to try another recipe from you.
Been making this recipe almost weekly because I love it so much! It’s protein rich and affordable and delicious! I swapped the potatoes for Japanese sweet potatoes. Yum!
Thanks to Sadia, her sweet husband, and the rest of the PUL team for all of your hard work. I always recommend your YT channel ans recipes to people I encounter that want to learn more about nutrition and cooking. Sending love from Las Vegas! 🥰
I'm confused by the coconut milk being optional. It wasn't referenced as optional in the video, and i'd imagine leaving it out would make quite a difference. If you leave it out, would you replace it with water? another milk? broth? or nothing at all? But I LOVE your channel and have enjoyed everything I've made so far and the non recipe vids too.
Very wholesome and filling!
This was very good, I did add less spinach and peas. All of my family enjoyed it!!!
Hello ! Is roti masala la the same as garam masala ? 3 tables spoon is really spicy even with coconut milk and I was wondering if I have the right spice. I loooove it with curri but I like to have different flavor curri that is why I try it with the masala mix.
Other then curri or masala , la there other spice mix option tu change the flavor ?
Love your web site, Thank you for helping me and my men To moove toward vegan life !
Yummy! And easy to make! Whole family loved it! Definitely add this recipe to my collection of family favourites!
So delicious, easy and cheap!
Made this curry today with brown rice. Such an amazing and hearty curry.
All your recipes are super good... love them all
Thanks a ton
Did this recipe at least 3 times and it's amazing. Everyone love it and keep asking for more. Definitely recommend this recipe.
Thank you for sharing it with us.
The dish looked like your pic! Easy to follow and basic ingredients are my favorite recipes. Love that you indicate the swap outs. I’m a big fan of your blog and channel. Your site is so impressive with the recipe, pictures, video and additional nutritional info! Wow! I like curry because of you guys. :).
this recipe is AMAZING! Best thing I have ever cooked in my entire life. Seriously so good! If your thinking of meal prepping it, it is really good reheated too! I loved it even more with some Sriracha. Will definitely make again!
I am not a vegetarian and I absolutely loved this dish. I made it and everyone loved it. My 12 year old daught didnt complain about it having peas and spinach, she just gobbled it up. Thank you.
That was so good! I am going through all of budget challenge recepies and for now, this is my favorite. Really yummy! I didn't have chickpeas in my pantry, so I exchange it for white beans.
I tried this one today to add into the rotation for meal prep this week...and it's a HIT. I'm so pleased with the flavor & how easy it was to prepare. I highly recommend the coconut milk addition, but I'm sure it would be wonderful without it as well. Thank you for this affordable,accessible gem!
This was a really good hearty meal. If you can provide the portions for roti masala seasoning I can ground the mix myself. I happen to have all the ingredients in my kitchen and took a guess at the proportions and used curry powder also.
So good! I'll be making this often. Thank you!!
So good! This is going into regular rotation for sure!
My five year old and I tackled this recipe tonight. We didn’t have all the right ingredients but used a homemade curry powder. She had so much fun helping and absolutely loved the “soup” part of the dish. I really enjoyed this dish as well and can’t wait to make it again using the roti masala. Thank you for the opportunity to share a fun recipe with my daughter!
Awesome recipe! Made this for 12 people.
I didn't have roti masala seasoning, but substituted with a vindaloo curry seasoning. Really good, but a little too spicy for some people :p
The serving calculator works really well.
Thanks for all the amazing recipes!
This was my first official vegan meal, and it was sooooo good! I had it with brown rice and an additional handful of fresh baby spinach. Just delicious!
Thank you for this recipe! I made it today for dinner and it was delicious.
I loved this recipe! It was so simple and delicious. I didn’t have the masala mix and used some of the spices I had and it still tasted great.
I made this recipe a few times. It's delicious and lasts several days without losing it's taste. It is also easy to adapt it with what you have at home.
Came together so quickly, so tasty and satisfying!
I’ve just made it and it’s delicious 😍 Used different spices plus fresh ginger, highly recommended ♥️
Hi! I was wondering if it would be possible to use red lentils instead of chickpeas in this recipe?
Love your recipes by the way!! Looking forward to trying this one :)
This dish is a keeper! I made this today for my family and they absolutely loved it! My hubby was a bit skeptical and suggested adding in some chicken, but oh boy was he pleasantly surprised :) He did not miss any meat at all and we will definetly keep on making this curry. Thank you so much for this recipe and because I have some aquafaba left from the chickpeas I'm gonna try the chocolate mousse dessert recipe that I saw from you on Youtube, hope it works out! "fingers crossed" :)
Hello! I was just wondering if "roti masala" seasoning and "garam masala" are the same thing? When researching Roti specifically I could not find if it was just another name for garam or not. I have both garam masala and curry powder on hand always, so was wondering which is the closest alternative? Thanks so much!
It's just amazing comfort in a bowl!
This is simple and delicious! It is a favorite at our house! We appreciate not only it's amazing flavor, but also that it is soy free, gluten free, and vegan. Thank you!
Cette recette est vraiment bonne et toute ma cuisine était embaumée de l'odeur des épices. à refaire c'est sur !
I definitely want to try this. I have been getting more into trying foods with curry. I have been also trying to freeze more food to help save some time in the kitchen.
1. I have heard that potatoes don't freeze well because the potatoes will get gritty. Have you experienced this? I noticed that this is a freezer friendly meal and definitely want to try to freeze.
2. Can I substitute tomato powder for Tyr tomatoes in this recipe?
Me and my boyfriend were looking to start adding some vegetarian options to our weekly food. This was first fully vegetarian meal that we made. It tasted AMAZING. Personally one of the better curry that I've tasted. And my bf was super happy with it too. Definitely will add to our favorites. Thank you ^^
It was SO good. Je conseille cette recette à tous.tes. Thank you to the team!
- From Canada
Wonderful flavorful dish, super quick and easy to make and we loved the spices!
Dear PUL team,
Your recipes are some if the most delicious I've tried and this curry was really good too. I just want you to know how much I appreciate your flawless work, even if it's my first time commenting on a recipe. If I can second what others have said, we could all do with a little more help on meal planning. It would be super interesting to see more videos like these based on 3-5 core ingredients. Or more tips on what ingredients go well together for more than 1 meal.
Thank you for all your great work, PUL team!
Im 14 and i cook for my family and this was so simple and SO SO GOOD, they all loved it and i did too. Thank you for this super easy recipe <3
I made this today with whatever I have in hand added with fried tofu cubes....yummy!!!
One of my new favorites. Will definately cook again soon.
I made this last night, I used a curry powder instead. Just yum!!!! creamy and spicy, so many flavours and textures. Just delicious. I doubled the recipe to make sure I had lots of leftovers. :) Thank you
OK so I did the 1 serving recipe, but with 2 medium potatoes instead of 1 (cause I love em), and curry instead of the roti, also didnt do the tortillas... BUT STILL I LOVED IT. Firstly cause it was TOO simple to cook, and not only that, but the fact that it makes you feel full easily made my curry last for 3 meals instead of just one !!! (Served with rice). So with very little amount of ingredients I ate 3 times, and very lil amount of time spent cooking. Thanks Sadia! Your recipes save students like me who dont even have an oven XD
I am really excited to try this! Do you think I could substitute the crushed tomatoes with tomato paste or do you recommend something else? I don’t really like the texture of full tomatoes (crushed or otherwise.)
By far, this was the most delicious curry I've ever made. Usually a homemade curry lacks flavor for me. Probably because there isn't a gallon of ghee added in. This one was so flavorful I cleaned my plate! Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow, too.
Absolutely amazing. I made the garlic tortillas...oh my goodness!!! Loved them!! Definitely a do again!
I made this for my family a few days ago and everyone absolutely loved it! We've all agreed that it'll have to be a new meal staple. Plus it makes for easy leftovers!
Loved this recipe ! Such easy and comfort <3
Thanks for the clear instructions, amazing website that updates ingredients automatically and easy step by step for the non-chef brains like mine. It was your you tube channel that got me into healthy plant based cooking as I can easily understand your video instructions. I followed all the steps. This curry turned out great, thank you! x
Great recipe! Subbed coconut milk for coconut cream because that’s what I had on hand and it still tasted amazing!
Great recipe! Loved it - so easy to make and nourishing!
This was very yummy, I didn't have curry powder or corriander so I mixed up some spices I did have. Could go with many different spices and still taste amazing.
Such a great recipe! The taste is so rich and flavorful which I would have not expected from just a mix of veggies. Definetelly give this recipe a try if you already have not! Will be making it again very soon!
Super delicious!!! Love how easy this is for a quick weekday meal!
The garlic naan tortillas are a genius addition to the Pick Up Limes curry recipe collection! I've made a bunch of curries from this site within the past year and they never disappoint - but I will say, for this recipe the tortillas were a highlight! I'll be keeping them in mind for future curries I make as a quick and easy companion to any curry dish! Thanks again for such a great idea!
OMG this curry is amazing! So simple and so tasty! Thank you 🥰
Love this recipe. Wasn't able to serve it with the garlic tortilla since I just had to snack all the time while cooking the Curry. It was tooooooooo tasty together :D Freezed some for later as well.
This was so easy to make and tastes SO GOOD. Used some random curry paste I had in the fridge and added lentils as well.
The potato needed way longer to cook though (1cm cubes!) but I think it's because I used a pan with no lid.
This was a delicious curry: tangy, sweet, savory! We ended up grinding our own roti masala by using the spices listed in the description, in equal proportions (slightly heavier on the cumin and coriander), and it was delicious. The potatoes did take a bit longer than 15 minutes to cook: it was about 30 minutes for us. But it was still a fairly quick process overall. The crispy garlic naan pieces were my favorite! Definitely making this again.
The potatoes took quite a bit longer to cook, but other than that, great recipe! I especially loved the idea with these garlic tortillas!
Made this recipe for my parents and partner two nights ago and it was a hit. Trying to show them how delicious a plant based lifestyle can be! I really love the affordability of these recipes and would love to see more videos like this. I come from Finland where food is very expensive so recipes which incorporate simple, affordable ingredients with a great taste are exactly what I am looking for. Congrats to Sadia and the PUL teams for making a beautiful and user friendly website. I have been following PUL for years now and so happy to see the growth:)
Made this for my non plant-based fiancé and he loved it! I was surprised that he didn’t notice the chickpeas, as he doesn’t branch out with his eating often. I added the optional coconut milk and it was wonderful served with some rice. Definitely will make again!
This recipe was sounding so comforting that I had to make it in my next meal after I watched the video. Replaced chickpea with chana dal and skipped adding peas because of my hurry to try it out. It was more comforting than I thought it to be. Very delicious, after eating this one will definitely feel healthier. I wish I could add picture in the comment section. (It is totally so photogenic). Thanks sadiya, lots of love ❤️ for being so inspiring and awesome.
Wow I cooked this curry, I gotta say I am super proud of my self and my husband who is vegetarian was blown away
I bought the ingredients for everything from this video. This is the first recipe I have tried and it is incredible! I made it in my instant pot, for 15 minutes, as I only had dried garbanzo beans that had been soaked, but needed to be cooked. I added the coconut milk, spinach, and frozen peas at the end. I cannot thank you enough! I have already shared this recipe with my mother and mother-in-love.
Awesome recipe, i've replaced the rice by semolina with oil and an extra bouillon cube and it's awesome ! Also, I prefer to put less potatoes, chickpeas and less spinach and peas. Coconut milk really makes the difference !
I've been doing your 5 1€ per portion recipes for a week and it is a very great journey to discover recipes.
Thanks for the work !
I absolutely love curries and this is now one of my new favourites! Thank you for all the great recipes, Sadia! ☺️
This was a little spicier than I normally like, but very tasty. The potatoes took way longer to cook even though I cut them pretty small. I had to add a bit more tomatoes and water to help potatoes cook thoroughly.
Love this weekly menu but I'm finding with vegan and veggie eating that it's so carb heavy. My body does not do well with a lot of carbs -- I'm older (post menopause) and gain weight just looking at a carb. I work out regularly, both cardio and weight lifting. Do you have meal plans that don't include so many carbs?
And I will say how happy I am I stumbled upon your site!
Love this! I was able to use a lot of fresh produce from our vegetable garden, so this was ideal! I just love how simple ingredients can yield such delicious results. I even made my own vegetable broth instead of using a cube. Additionally, my partner can't believe how many meatless days we've been having since I started following your channel. To put things into perspective - he's German and I'm Dutch-Canadian and we both grew up on...well all of those Northern European "meatfull" foods. It's huge to be able to reduce our impact and eat more vegetables. I recall that there was an ebook available at one point in time...is that still available?
I love the concept of the five recipes, with one shopping list! This makes it great to plan ahead for a week and reduces foodwaste which is awesome! We will try this definetly at home. I am prepping for the first week with a newborn and I love the fact that your new website shows freezer friendly recipes. If I could make a request for a video, something like this with only freezer friendly recipes would also make a great video I think, not only for new moms but for everyone with a busy schedule!
Hello! I’m wondering if you think that swapping the roti masala for garam masala would be a good substitute? 😌
