  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL)
    vegetable oil
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped
  • 2
    cloves garlic, minced
  • vegetable bouillon cube, crushed
  • 3 Tbsp (19 g)
    roti masala spice mix
  • 3
    medium potatoes, cut into 1 cm cubes
  • 1
    carrot, diced
  • 1 cup (164 g)
    cooked chickpeas
  • 1 cup (240 mL)
    canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup (240 mL)
  • 1 cup (240 mL)
    canned full-fat coconut milk (optional)
  • 2 cups (60 g)
    fresh spinach
  • 1 cup (138 g)
    frozen green peas

Garlic tortilla

  • 2 tsp (10 mL)
    vegetable oil
  • 2
    cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2
    large soft tortillas

Serves well with

  • cooked rice


  1. 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.
  2. Then add the crushed bouillon cube and masala seasoning. Cook and stir continuously for 30 - 60 seconds to allow the spices to lightly toast.
  3. Add the potatoes, carrots, chickpeas, tomatoes, and water. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked through. Stir periodically.
  5. 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.
  6. When the potatoes are cooked, add the coconut milk, spinach, and peas. Cook until heated through.
  7. 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.

Made this so many times, still love it. Inexpensive and easy. I just put everything into the pressure cooker and call it a day.

Inu - April 30, 2024, 9:46 p.m.

Tastes just amazing!!! Great in its simplicity!! 🥰🥰🥰

Zsofi - April 17, 2024, 10:22 p.m.

The tick function is a great feature! I tend to forget where I was in the preparation process and this is a great solution.

PUL Team - April 19, 2024, 5:16 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying it, Zsofi!

Peyton - April 17, 2024, midnight

So tasty, so easy, SO filling, SO cheap!!! I added more spices to mine and i added the can of coconut milk for more creamy texture like they suggested

Naomi - March 13, 2024, 9:53 p.m.

Wow wow wow I am GOBSMACKED!!!! This absolutely slays the boots and the house down you should RUN to make this!!! 😍😍😍😍😍Also I accidentally used too much water so added red lentils to soak it up. This meal POPPED off I’m so stuffed but want more 🫶🏻

PUL Team - March 13, 2024, 10:48 p.m.

Woohoo! So glad that you enjoyed the potato and spinach curry, Naomi 😃

Nurul - March 13, 2024, 6:38 a.m.

I can see coriander in the photos but they weren’t listed in the ingredients or recipe?

Dorotka Nowak - Feb. 25, 2024, 3:44 p.m.


Donna Martinez - Feb. 25, 2024, 3:02 a.m.

This recipe left me and my fiancé speechless. Different mixes of flavors and textures. Very wholesome and delicious. Thank you so much.

Dacia Benson - Feb. 21, 2024, 6:44 p.m.

I found it delish! I served with rice and the fake naan went down well with my kids. I didn’t have roti masala so I actually made my own from the spices mentioned. I just toasted the whole seeds in a small frying pan and then ground them. I think it elevated the flavour a lot

Kim Tee - Jan. 24, 2024, 7:46 a.m.

Excellent recipe, especially the knock off naan hack. I added a bit of lime juice at the end - nice touch.

Alessandra Bordone - Jan. 17, 2024, 8:41 p.m.

È incredibile come tutte le ricette che provo siano fantastiche!!! ❤️🥹

marika - Dec. 30, 2023, 9:24 p.m.

Was very wholesome and balanced

Sabine - Dec. 27, 2023, 3:13 p.m.

Another excellent receipe .
Since I don't have a roti masala I have used Garam masala and this was perfectly fine for us.
Easy to prepare and to cook, very delicous.
We had rice and your naan bread.

Liss - Dec. 10, 2023, 3:25 p.m.

This is absolutely our new go-to recipe! Taste like we bought it at a restaurant! So impressed!

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2023, 1:28 a.m.

Aww such a big compliment, Liss, thank you! 😊

Elke Tranzer - Dec. 1, 2023, 9:25 p.m.

Thank you for this fantastic receipe. It's so delicious. The step by step instructions are very helpful and easy to understand, even for my son, who is not a very skilled cook 🙂

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2023, 3:17 a.m.

We're so happy that the curry was enjoyed, Elke! And yesss 🙌 don't the step-by-step instructions make cooking so much easier!? Hugs to you and your son 🤗

Florian - Nov. 28, 2023, 11:10 p.m.

Loves it! This was my first recipe from this app and it was absolutely easy and quick to make. The addition of coconut milk made such a difference. I’ll totally make this dish again - though next time I’ll probably use half a cup of water less. Thanks PUL!

PUL Team - Nov. 29, 2023, 12:50 a.m.

Aw we’re excited to continue our culinary journey on the PUL App together, Florian! Thank you 😊 ✨

Ines - Nov. 27, 2023, 9:57 p.m.

So good and quick, too. It’s so easy with the step by step instructions. I really love your app, all the little details show how much thought and effort you put into it.

PUL Team - Nov. 27, 2023, 11:37 p.m.

Aw thanks so much, Ines! The step-by-step cook-along feature is one of our favourite parts of the app 🤩

lea - Nov. 26, 2023, 1:18 a.m.

This app has been a game changer for this recipe! I love the addition of timers and it feels like my meal came out a lot better than it usually does!

PUL Team - Nov. 26, 2023, 10 p.m.

Oh we're so happy to hear, Lea! Doesn't the step-by-step cooking feature make cooking easier? 🤩

Sophia - Nov. 17, 2023, 12:01 p.m.

Made this recipe so many times, it stores fantastically in the freezer and is budget friendly. I made it for my partner last night and he said it was the best curry he's ever had. He might have just been saying it to be nice but I'd still say thats a positive review :D

PUL Team - Nov. 17, 2023, 4:55 p.m.

Such a huuuge compliment! Thanks for taking the time to share, Sophia 🫶

Julianne Poissant - Nov. 17, 2023, 1:15 a.m.

Just made this recipe and it is absolutely delicious! Perfect warm, comforting meal.

Erin Janda - Sept. 23, 2023, 2:59 a.m.

I love the potatoes in this curry! A perfect Autumn meal.

julie p - Sept. 19, 2023, 6:43 p.m.

This is so good made it many times from the website

Samantha - Sept. 6, 2023, 7:39 p.m.

Hi! I'm very eager to make this, but I am curious what the nutrition will be without the tortilla (or rice? Is that included in this too?) For right now I'm just reducing what I think it would be for the tortilla. Just want to see if I can have a more accurate estimate without the extra things. Thank you so much & I'm excited to try it!

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2023, 12:15 a.m.

Hey Samantha, the nutrition information for this recipe includes the naan but doesn't include the rice. The naan adds around 140 calories, 3 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat, and 20 grams of carbohydrates per portion. The exact value will depend on your ingredients though, such as what brand of tortilla is used 🙂

Anna - Sept. 5, 2023, 9:07 a.m.

Loved it! But had to add some sugar and vinegar to balance the taste. My partner didn't like it

Deboleena - Aug. 28, 2023, 11:44 p.m.

Delicious and simple!

Nova - Aug. 22, 2023, 9:35 p.m.

Yuuum!! Made this with the garlic tortillas instead of rice. So delicious and perfect for meal prep! 😍

Sahiti - Aug. 15, 2023, 6:36 p.m.

I made this recipe multiple times watching YouTube video. This is the first I made it with the steps described in the app. It’s awesome. Easy to follow. Less mess.

PUL Team - Aug. 15, 2023, 10:58 p.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear, Sahiti! The step-by-step cook along feature is one of our favourite parts of the app 😊

Henriette - Aug. 8, 2023, 6:46 p.m.

Really Delicious!! I skipped the garlic bread, added ripe mango as a sidedish and used Garam Masala because that was in the house.

Aubre - July 10, 2023, 11:48 p.m.

I had to substitute madras curry for the roti masala but it still turned out great!

Kathi - July 5, 2023, 1:33 p.m.

It definitely is very tasty as it is but I chose to add some more spices to it in the end. That is of course because I have them in the pantry anyways. I added a lime leaf, a peace of star anise and some curryleafs.

Kat - June 30, 2023, 7:35 p.m.

Super tasty, easy to make recipe! I’m the only vegan in my house so I love that you say how long it keeps and how to freeze.

Pick up limes is my go to for good veggie recipes! Thanks :)

PUL Team - July 2, 2023, 9:36 a.m.

Awe such a big compliment, Kat, thank you 🤗

Chantel - June 29, 2023, 3:59 a.m.

I'm trying to change my diet due to inflammatory disease. I'm so excited, thanks to your blog. Looking forward to trying this recipe. I just yelled to the family, "dinner is served!" THANK YOU!

Noomi Kifarkis - June 28, 2023, 10:14 p.m.

Vidhya - June 6, 2023, 5:14 a.m.

I made this with Black Eyed peas instead of Chickpeas... but otherwise followed everything you said.. (Just because I had it in my pantry.. it was SOO good! Thanks for this recipe

PUL Team - June 6, 2023, 7:59 p.m.

A delicious substitution, Vidhya, thanks a bunch! 🤗

Ami - June 4, 2023, 7:19 a.m.

Absolutely LOVE this recipe, so much so that I had it for breakfast or lunch multiple days in row.

Delicious as is, and I’m also thinking of trying it with the coconut milk subbed out for another plant-based milk for a less coconut-ey flavor, just to switch it up.

There’s something about this curry, (minus the coconut flavor) that reminds me a lot of Japanese curry.

It must be the potatoes, carrots, onion, and peas (I always put peas in my Japanese curry).

This will definitely be in heavy rotation! Thank you for this fabulous recipe!

PUL Team - June 5, 2023, 4:42 p.m.

Whoop whoop! So thrilled to hear, Ami, thank you! 😃

alex - May 14, 2023, 11:57 p.m.

really really good! even though I accidentally used a whole can of coconut milk and one of chopped tomatoes......was still extremely tasty albeit liquidy. I served with rice and parathas.

PUL Team - May 15, 2023, 7:21 a.m.

Aw thanks for sharing your experience with it, Alex 😊

Robin - April 26, 2023, 2:46 a.m.

Sharvani - April 13, 2023, 11:25 p.m.

Used kale instead of spinach and it tasted great! Feel like I underestimated how much flavour this would have - yum yum yum! Such a great way to get veggies and greens in, and so versatile to have with rice or chappati 😍

PUL Team - April 14, 2023, 12:57 a.m.

Aw so happy to hear, Sharvani, it means so much! Thank you 😃

Nazia - April 10, 2023, 12:33 a.m.

Hi can we use frozen vegetables instead for this? Will be traveling but I definitely want to make this. Also- if there’s no access to roti masala is it just curry powder that you need or would you recommend additional spices?

Thank you!

PUL Team - April 10, 2023, 1:46 a.m.

Hey Nazia, yes you can use frozen vegetables! Our 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, you can substitute it for an equal amount of curry powder. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try, and safe travels 😃

Rachel - Feb. 23, 2023, 1:15 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Feb. 23, 2023, 7:18 p.m.

Hello dearest, Rachel, warm welcome to the PUL community! We're so thrilled the recipe was enjoyed. Wishing you and your three little ones all the best, and thank you for letting PUL be part of your journey 🌱 💛

Taylor - Feb. 12, 2023, 8:33 p.m.

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! 🥰

PUL Team - Feb. 12, 2023, 10:27 p.m.

Oh thank you for sharing your love and light, Taylor 💛 Sharing our content is such a big compliment and we're so glad the recipe is being enjoyed! Hugs to Las Vegas 🤗

Dylan - Feb. 12, 2023, 7:19 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Feb. 12, 2023, 10:17 p.m.

Hey Dylan, thanks for much for the question - sorry for the confusion! The video in which this recipe was made as part of a budget challenge, so unfortunately, we were unable to include coconut milk in the ingredients due to budget constraints. However, we did mention at the end of the video that adding a small amount of coconut milk can provide extra creaminess to the dish if desired. We've tried making this dish both with and without coconut milk and it tastes great either way. If you choose to leave it out, the recipe as written will still work perfectly (no need to swap the coco milk for anything else), you'll just get a thicker consistency for the curry. I'm so glad that you're enjoying the PUL content as well! 🙂 So glad the PUL content is being enjoyed as well!

Rachael - Feb. 12, 2023, 9:34 a.m.

Very wholesome and filling!

Christine Baker - Oct. 22, 2022, 3:49 a.m.

This was very good, I did add less spinach and peas. All of my family enjoyed it!!!

PUL Team - Oct. 23, 2022, 7:15 p.m.

Lovely modifications, Christine, we're so glad it was enjoyed!

Katia - Aug. 16, 2022, 1:36 a.m.

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 !

PUL Team - Aug. 16, 2022, 2:08 a.m.

Hey there, Katia, thanks for the kind words and question! Garam masala tends to have a bit of a different spice blend in our experience. For example, it may contain cinnamon and cloves in place of some spices that the roti masala contains. Our store-bought seasoning doesn't give the exact proportions but it has ground coriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard, nigella, fenugreek, and pepper.

Some brands are spicier than others so you could start with less and always add more to taste. Alternatively, you could opt for curry powder or perhaps some of the other spices such as coriander, turmeric, and cumin in smaller quantities to taste. Wishing you all the best on your plant-based journey 🌱

Katia - Aug. 16, 2022, 2:26 a.m.

If I use harissa ? Would that work ? Or the mexicain spices of the other receipe in the vidéo ?
Im trying To change the curri because I use it often for other receipe. Or everything will taste the same 😅

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2022, 2:11 a.m.

Hey Katia, using harissa or Mexican spices instead of the curry powder will impact the flavour of the curry a fair bit so we wouldn't recommend it. If you do test it out though, starting with less and adding more to taste is one approach to help avoid strong undesirable flavours.

If you're hoping to use Mexican spices for a dish you may enjoy our Burrito Nourish Bowl instead:… or our harissa spiced beans:… if you haven't already seen them 🤗

Laura - Aug. 7, 2022, 11:33 p.m.

Yummy! And easy to make! Whole family loved it! Definitely add this recipe to my collection of family favourites!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2022, 4:01 p.m.

We're so thrilled to hear, Jessica, thank YOU :D

Lina - April 28, 2022, 3:43 p.m.

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. :).

PUL Team - April 29, 2022, 7 p.m.

Oh, Lina, thank you for the glowing feedback! It means so much ❣️

Aliya - April 23, 2022, 12:50 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - April 23, 2022, 2:39 a.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Aliya, it means soo much 🤗

Yesie - April 14, 2022, 12:19 a.m.

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.

PUL Team - April 14, 2022, 7:47 a.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, Yesie, thanks a bunch 😊

Agata - March 30, 2022, 11:47 a.m.

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.

PUL Team - March 30, 2022, 4 p.m.

A lovely substitute, Agata, thank you!

Jen - March 19, 2022, 3:05 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - March 19, 2022, 3:50 a.m.

Awe we're so happy to hear, Jen, so glad it's being enjoyed 🙂

Kathy - March 14, 2022, 9:57 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - March 15, 2022, 1:35 a.m.

Hey Kathy, so glad it was enjoyed! Our storebought seasoning doesn't give the exact proportions of ground coriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard, nigella, fenugreek, or pepper, unfortunately. We'll note down a suggestion for a PUL recipe for roti masala seasoning though 🤓

Diana - March 11, 2022, 2:07 a.m.

So good! I'll be making this often. Thank you!!

Ariana - March 3, 2022, 6:56 a.m.

So good! This is going into regular rotation for sure!

PUL Team - March 4, 2022, 1:54 a.m.

Woohoo! Thank you, Ariana :)

Anna - Feb. 25, 2022, 4:40 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Feb. 25, 2022, 6:55 a.m.

Aw we're so honoured you and your little one enjoyed it, Anna! Thank you ❣️

Emma - Feb. 19, 2022, 6:09 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 9:59 p.m.

It means so much to hear, Emma, and so nice of you to make it for everyone 😃

Mae - Feb. 12, 2022, 3:12 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 2:39 a.m.

We're beyond honoured a PUL meal was the first vegan meal, Mae, and so happy it was enjoyed 😃

Selma - Feb. 9, 2022, 6:23 p.m.

Thank you for this recipe! I made it today for dinner and it was delicious.

Aruna - Feb. 2, 2022, 6:10 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Feb. 3, 2022, 4:56 a.m.

A wonderful modification, Aruna, and so thrilled to hear 🤗

Shanon - Jan. 30, 2022, 2:23 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Jan. 31, 2022, 1:14 a.m.

It means so much, Shanon, thanks for taking the time to share!

ST - Jan. 26, 2022, 3:01 a.m.

Came together so quickly, so tasty and satisfying!

anna_karenina - Jan. 24, 2022, 11:51 p.m.

I’ve just made it and it’s delicious 😍 Used different spices plus fresh ginger, highly recommended ♥️

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 1:40 a.m.

Mmmm sounds lovely, Anna Karenina! We're so happy the curry was enjoyed :)

Bella - Jan. 9, 2022, 8:56 p.m.

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 :)

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 3:29 a.m.

Hi Bella! You can use red lentils if desired. To give more control over the lentils, we'd recommend pre-cooked lentils, such as canned lentils or lentils prepared in a separate pot, and add them closer to the end. Let us know how it goes if you give the curry try 😃

Fran - Jan. 8, 2022, 7:22 p.m.

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" :)

We're smiling from ear to ear, Fran - thank you for the glowing review! We hope the mousse was enjoyed as well 🤩

Malia - Jan. 6, 2022, 2:08 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Jan. 6, 2022, 6:49 a.m.

Hey there, Malia! Garam masala tends to have a bit of a different spice blend in our experience. For example, it may contain cinnamon and cloves in place of some spices that the roti masala contains. Feel free to use either garam masala or curry powder if desired. Since garam masala is a blend of spices it may mimic the roti masalas depth a bit better 😊

It's just amazing comfort in a bowl!

Lindsey - Dec. 22, 2021, 7:02 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Dec. 23, 2021, 1:38 a.m.

So glad the curry is being enjoyed, Lindsey, thank YOU 🤗

alexia - Dec. 21, 2021, 3:30 p.m.

Cette recette est vraiment bonne et toute ma cuisine était embaumée de l'odeur des épices. à refaire c'est sur !

Gicela Nufio - Dec. 3, 2021, 1:58 p.m.

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?

PUL Team - Dec. 4, 2021, 1:48 a.m.

Super fun to be experimenting with curry, Gicela! It's one of our favourite meals 😊 In our experience, defrosted potatoes don't keep their form as nicely and can indeed be a bit gritty. This curry tends to freeze well in an air-tight container for up to a month though since there isn't a lot of excess moisture for the potatoes to soak up when frozen.

We haven't experimented with tomato powder instead of the canned tomato in this one so we can't say with certainty. Since powders tend to be fairly concentrated, we'd suggest starting with a tablespoon (around 15 mL) with some water and adding more to taste. We hope this helps for now, and do let us know how it goes if you give the curry a try!

Svetlana - Nov. 29, 2021, 6:30 a.m.

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 ^^

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2021, 2:25 a.m.

Aw we're so honoured to hear, Svetlana, and we're so glad the curry was enjoyed ✨

Marie-Christine - Nov. 11, 2021, 12:05 a.m.

It was SO good. Je conseille cette recette à tous.tes. Thank you to the team!

So happy to hear, Marie, hugs to Canada ☺️

Alyssa - Nov. 8, 2021, 8:32 a.m.

Wonderful flavorful dish, super quick and easy to make and we loved the spices!

Anca - Nov. 5, 2021, 11:13 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Nov. 6, 2021, 12:24 a.m.

Dearest Anca, thank YOU for the glowing review and kind words. It means so much more than we can express! Hopefully, we can share some resources to help with meal planning soon 🤗 In the meantime, you may find filtering for ingredients on our recipe search page helpful if you're interested and haven't already seen it:

amelia - Oct. 27, 2021, 1:29 a.m.

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

PUL Team - Oct. 27, 2021, 2:34 a.m.

Hi Amelia, how kind of you to cook for your family! We're so thrilled the recipe is being enjoyed ✨

Catherine J. Smith - Oct. 21, 2021, 12:47 p.m.

I made this today with whatever I have in hand added with fried tofu cubes....yummy!!!

PUL Team - Oct. 22, 2021, 3:32 a.m.

Love the addition of tofu cubes, Catherine, thanks for sharing 🤗

Cgal - Oct. 16, 2021, 5:12 a.m.

One of my new favorites. Will definately cook again soon.

Krizia - Oct. 14, 2021, 2:22 p.m.

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

PUL Team - Oct. 15, 2021, 1:16 a.m.

Mmm a delicious substitute, Krizia, so happy the curry is being enjoyed!

Agustina - Oct. 9, 2021, 4:20 p.m.

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

PUL Team - Oct. 10, 2021, 12:06 a.m.

Hi Agustina! Aw you're much too kind. It means so much that PUL recipes are being enjoyed 😊 All the best with your studies 🤗

Hannah - Oct. 9, 2021, 8:06 a.m.

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.)

PUL Team - Oct. 9, 2021, 10:57 p.m.

Hey there, Hannah! Thanks for the question. Tomato paste is a fair bit more concentrated with less moisture than crushed tomatoes. Due to this, we'd recommend adding just very little initially (such as 1 tsp) and then add more to taste with water to the desired taste and texture. Alternatively, you could blend the crushed tomatoes or use tomato puree for a smoother consistency 😊

Hannah - Oct. 9, 2021, 11:27 p.m.

Thank you!

Allison - Oct. 6, 2021, 2:37 a.m.

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.

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2021, 4:08 a.m.

Oh wow, Allison, this is a huge compliment! We're so thrilled the curry is being enjoyed 😊

Angell - Oct. 5, 2021, 11:31 p.m.

Absolutely amazing. I made the garlic tortillas...oh my goodness!!! Loved them!! Definitely a do again!

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2021, 4:07 a.m.

Ooo sounds so yummy, Angell, thank you for the kind words!

Rory - Oct. 4, 2021, 3:32 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Oct. 4, 2021, 3:56 a.m.

We're so happy to hear, Rory! Thank you for sharing your experience with the curry 😃

Valérie - Sept. 29, 2021, 7:49 p.m.

Loved this recipe ! Such easy and comfort <3

Liz - Sept. 28, 2021, 3:26 p.m.

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

PUL Team - Sept. 29, 2021, 7:07 p.m.

Oh, Liz, thank YOU for the incredible feedback and for helping make our PUL community so special. It means so much 🤗

Courtney - Sept. 26, 2021, 11:55 p.m.

Great recipe! Subbed coconut milk for coconut cream because that’s what I had on hand and it still tasted amazing!

PUL Team - Sept. 27, 2021, 4:32 a.m.

Thanks for sharing, Courtney, so happy the curry was enjoyed 🙂

Sara - Sept. 25, 2021, 2:55 p.m.

Great recipe! Loved it - so easy to make and nourishing!

Bec - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:14 a.m.

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.

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2021, 4:58 p.m.

Love that this one is so versatile 😃 Thanks for sharing, Bec!

Dana - Sept. 13, 2021, 1:09 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Sept. 14, 2021, 2:29 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Dana, thank you for the lovely review 😃

Kayla - Sept. 1, 2021, 3:16 a.m.

Super delicious!!! Love how easy this is for a quick weekday meal!

Jamie R - Aug. 30, 2021, 8:35 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2021, 2:29 a.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe and other PUL curries, Jamie! Thank YOU 😊

Carol - Aug. 29, 2021, 5:06 a.m.

OMG this curry is amazing! So simple and so tasty! Thank you 🥰

Britta - Aug. 26, 2021, 1:52 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2021, 7:04 p.m.

So thrilled you enjoyed the curry, Britta, it means so much!

a - Aug. 22, 2021, 4:14 p.m.

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.

Deboleena - Aug. 21, 2021, 10:36 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Aug. 24, 2021, 6:03 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed this recipe, Deboleena, and a homemade masala sounds delicious 🤤 thanks as well for the feedback about the cooking time - we've updated the directions accordingly 🤗

Clare - Aug. 19, 2021, 2:15 p.m.

The potatoes took quite a bit longer to cook, but other than that, great recipe! I especially loved the idea with these garlic tortillas!

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 8:40 p.m.

Thanks for the review, Clare, we're so glad you enjoyed this one! We used medium-sized potatoes (around 170 grams each) so one idea may be that the potatoes used were slightly bigger resulting in more potato chunks and more time needed to cook them. Ovens also sometimes differ in their strength and airflow so increasing the temperature a touch may help speed up the cooking time depending on your oven if you give the recipe another try ✨

Hilary - Aug. 18, 2021, 3:58 p.m.

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:)

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 8:30 p.m.

Aw you're too kind, Hilary! So thrilled you're enjoying the PUL content. Thank you for being here 🥰

Hannah - Aug. 15, 2021, 4:26 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Aug. 16, 2021, 3:16 a.m.

So glad you and your fiancé enjoyed the curry, Hannah! We're so happy to hear 😍

Hitashi Modi - Aug. 14, 2021, 4:27 p.m.

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.

PUL Team - Aug. 14, 2021, 6:23 p.m.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with this one, Hitashi, it's so appreciated! We've noted down the feedback for adding pictures to the comment section. Super helpful to hear so we can continue to improve and grow. In the meantime, we'd love to see your creations on Instagram with the tag #pickuplimes or @pickuplimes 🤗

Rumby - Aug. 14, 2021, 1:44 p.m.

Wow I cooked this curry, I gotta say I am super proud of my self and my husband who is vegetarian was blown away

Lauren - Aug. 11, 2021, 1:40 a.m.

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.

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 3:01 a.m.

We appreciate the kind words more than we can express, Lauren! Thanks a bunch for sharing 🌻

Julien - Aug. 10, 2021, 10:02 p.m.

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 !

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 2:54 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Julien! So happy you've been enjoying the recipes 😃

Anna - Aug. 8, 2021, 7:03 p.m.

I absolutely love curries and this is now one of my new favourites! Thank you for all the great recipes, Sadia! ☺️

Denice - Aug. 8, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 11:18 p.m.

Hi there, Denice! Thanks so much for the valuable review and feedback. It's really helpful to consider so we can work towards improving PUL.

For this recipe, we used medium-sized potatoes (around 170 grams each) so one idea may be that the potatoes used were slightly bigger resulting in more potato chunks and more time needed to cook them. Ovens also sometimes vary in their strength and airflow. Increasing the temperature a touch may help speed up the cooking time depending on your oven if you give the recipe another try 🌻

At the moment, we don't have any meal plans with a focus on fewer carbs, but we've noted it down as a suggestion for future PUL content. In the meantime, we're so glad you stumbled on PUL as well 😃

Cecilia - Aug. 8, 2021, 12:12 a.m.

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 that still available?

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:26 p.m.

Thanks a bunch for the kind words and interest in the PUL e-cookbook, Cecilia! Our 3-year anniversary e-cookbook containing all of our recipes up until the end of December 2019 can be found here: 🌻

Elke van Es - Aug. 6, 2021, 3:16 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2021, 1:59 a.m.

Aw, we appreciate this so much, Elke van Es! Thank you for being here and for the lovely request. All the best with the little one 💚🌻

Gina Benson - Aug. 6, 2021, 1:31 a.m.

Hello! I’m wondering if you think that swapping the roti masala for garam masala would be a good substitute? 😌

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2021, 2:46 a.m.

Hi Gina, great question! It may depend on the type of garam masala, as there are different varieties. Are you able to check the label to see what's in yours? Usually, they consist of "warmer" spices such as cinnamon, peppercorn, cardamom, cloves, mace, and nutmeg. I personally find these spices to be more intense and sharp, and so I wouldn't suggest using it as a straight substitute. I'd suggest using about 1/3rd garam masala, and then making up the other 2/3rd with any of the following, or a combination of, depending on what you have at home: ground cumin, ground coriander, and/or curry powder. I hope this helps for now! 😊
