Indian Spiced Chickpea Wraps

Raita, an Indian condiment made with yogurt, elevates this vegetarian dish to a satisfying gourmet wrap. If you're in the mood to experiment, try diced mango or cucumber for the pineapple and add fresh herbs like cilantro or mint. —Jennifer Beckman, Falls Church, Virginia

    I made this recipe with cucumber and cilantro in the Raita, as suggested in the description. I really liked the recipe, but the cilantro was really overwhelming. I will leave it out next time. I did not add the cayenne pepper, but I will next time. Despite the overwhelming cilantro, we really enjoyed this dish and I will certainly try it again. It is a great addition to our "Meatless Monday" rotation.

    Though this recipe has gotten 5 stars from other reviewers, I am only able to give it one. It is definitely healthy and easy to fix but not so pleasing to the palate. My husband and I normally like Indian spices but, in this case, the various flavors seemed to be fighting one another. It was fun to try but we prefer a more harmonious meal!

    These wraps were great! This is not something I would usually make and my husband  wasn't so sure at first but we both loved them. It was quick to put together and the ingredients were budget friendly IF you already have the spices. Luckily I did because of the variety of foods I make.I did substitute lettuce for spinach and diced tomatoes for the crushed.

    Thanks for this healthy, simple, flexible and yummy recipe! I made a few substitutions to use what I had on hand: lettuce instead of spinach, a can of diced tomatoes instead of crushed, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger rather than fresh, and an extra teaspoon of curry instead of the other spices.

    Kudos to taste of home for beginning an initiative to include a lighter meals section in their magazine. This was delicious and very filling. I loved the balance of spices. I highly recommend adding the cayenne pepper as it adds just the right amount of heat. I will definitely make this again!

    Tried this recipe, very big change from our usual kind of meals, and my husband and I loved it and see it being a new addition to our regular round of meals.
