Recipe Directions

For the Roti:
1. Sift 1 cup of each flour, the sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl.
2. Make a well in the flour and add the yogurt. Work the yogurt into the flour mixture, and then slowly add in the milk. Mix to form a shaggy dough.
3. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 15 minutes.
4. Gently knead 6-10 times to form a smooth dough. Add a little water if the dough is too dry.
5. Roll into a thick log. Wrap in plastic and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Cut the dough into 8 equal parts and shape each into a ball. Let relax for 10 minutes.
7. Dredge each round in flour and flatten into disks 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter.
8. Roll out into thin 8-inch rounds, using flour as needed to keep them from sticking. Cover and set aside.

For the Limey Onions:
1. Season the onions with salt and let sit for 5 minutes.
2. Drain off the liquid and add the lime juice, cilantro, mint, and additional salt as needed. Let sit for 10 minutes.

For the Sautéed Cauliflower:
1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium low heat.
2. Add the cumin and ginger. Cook 30 seconds or until aromatic.
3. Add the cauliflower and sauté 10 minutes or until caramelized and tender.
4. Season with salt and pepper, and a generous squeeze of lime.
5. Remove from heat and mix in chopped cilantro. Set aside.

For the Filling:
1. Heat the oil in sauté pan over medium heat.
2. Add the onions and pinch of salt. When onions turn translucent, add the garlic, ginger, chile, turmeric, cayenne, cumin, and coriander. Cook until aromatic.
3. Add MorningStar Farms® Sausage Style Crumbles. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring periodically.
4. Add the tomatoes, water, chickpeas and salt as needed. Cook on medium low for 15-20 minutes until the mixture thickens and the flavors meld.
5. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, stir in cilantro, and set aside.

To Assemble:
1. Heat a large griddle or heavy skillet over medium high heat.
2. Place a roti on it and cook, rotating the dough until the roti starts to bubble, approximately 30 seconds. Turn and cook on the other side, rotating the dough as it cooks.
3. Pour about 1 1/2 Tbs. of the beaten eggs onto the roti and spread to cover surface.
4. When the egg starts to firm, flip the roti to cook the egg into a light omelet-like coating on that side, about 30 seconds.
5. Transfer to a plate, egg side faced down.
6. Place ½ cup of the Morningstar Farms® Sausage Style Crumbles filling, ¼ cup of cauliflower, 1 spoonful each chutney, and the Limey Onions down the length of the roti.
7. Roll it up tightly like a wrap or open ended burrito.
8. Serve with Yogurt, and more Green Chile Chutney, and Tamarind and Fig Chutney.

NOTE: Whole-wheat flour tortillas can be used in place of the roti. Jalapeño peppers can be substituted for the serrano chiles.

Green Chili Chutney:
1. Combine cilantro, mint leaves, Serrano chiles (Jalapeño peppers can be substituted), ginger, lime juice, water, sugar, and salt in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Adjust seasoning with salt and sugar.

Tamarind and Fig Chutney:
1. Pour 1 ½ cups of boiling water over the tamarind pulp and allow to soak 1 hour to overnight.
2. In another bowl, pour 1 cup of boiling water over the figs and allow them to soak 1 hour or overnight.
3. Knead the tamarind with your fingers, breaking up any lumps of soaked tamarind. This should form a thick puree.
4. Strain the tamarind puree through a mesh sieve, forcing the pulp through the strainer. Only the seeds should be left in the strainer. Discard the seeds and reserve the liquid.
5. Place the figs, strained tamarind puree, cumin, asafoetida, black pepper, cayenne, salt, sugar, and jaggery (or brown sugar) in a sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until the jaggery (or brown sugar) melts, stirring frequently.
6. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until the mixture thickens and becomes shiny, glossy and reduces to 2 cups.
7. Check seasoning and adjust for sweetness.
NOTE: May substitute a small pinch of onion powder and garlic powder for asafoetida.
