Indian Spiced Chickpea Wraps Recipe

Raita, an Indian condiment made with yogurt, elevates this vegetarian dish into a satisfying gourmet wrap. I sometimes substitute diced mango or cucumber for the pineapple and add fresh herbs like cilantro or mint. —Jennifer Beckman, Falls Church, Virginia

Ingredients

  • RAITA:
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) reduced-fat plain yogurt

Directions
