“Ultimate comfort food for me! Indian Spices in what is essentially mashed potatoes, this recipe is a family favorite out of the Moosewood New Classics cookbook. I particularly like to use whole-wheat tortillas when making these, and I almost always double the recipe because YUM! An excellent way to boost the protein content of this dish is to add soft tofu when mashing the potatoes with the cream cheese, or if vegan, use only the tofu and go for a very thick mashed potato texture.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly oil a baking dish.
  2. Place the potatoes an dsalt in a small pot with water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes, until tender. When the potatoes are tender, drain and mash them with the cream cheese, and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, warm the oil in a saucepan, and saute the onions and garlic on medium heat for about 10 minutes, until translucent (or, if you're brave, 20 minutes until a deep golden brown - but watch carefully to keep from burning!). Add the ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, and cayenne and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the peas and tomatoes, cover, and cook on low heat just long enough to heat through. Stir the cook vegetables and the lemon juice into the mashed potatoes. Add salt to taste.
  4. Place a generous 1/3 cup of the filling at the bottom of each wrap and roll it up. Place the wraps seam side down in the prepared baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 10-15 minutes, until hot.
