Tandoori Chickpea Naan Wraps with Kachumber Salad
This naan wrap is a playful remix of Indian-spiced chickpeas and chutney, with toasted whole wheat naan as a fitting vessel. Chickpeas are coated in vibrant masala spices and turmeric for traditional tandoori flavour with creamy yogurt to bring it all together.

Notes: I think this is one of my favourite recipes from Chef’s Plate. I absolutely loved everything about it. I have a weakness for naan, and I also happen to LOVE cilantro chutney. The entire dish went together perfectly. The chutney enhanced the flavour of the chickpeas and the warm naan was perfect for a chilly Fall day. I used vegan yogurt and a little coconut milk in place of the regular yogurt and it turned out beautifully. I also topped my wrap with the salad and ate everything mixed together……SO GOOD!!!
