2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the potatoes

Heat the oven to 400°F.

  • Scrub or peel the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into quarters; cut any large quarters into ½-inch wedges.  

In a medium sauce pot, add the potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer and cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Meanwhile, toast the tortillas.


Crisp the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.

On a sheet pan [2 sheet pans], brush the tortillas all over with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt; arrange side by side. Toast in the oven, turning halfway through, until crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the tortillas to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the chickpeas.


Cook the chickpeas

  • Rinse the chickpeas. 

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are very tender and the liquid has thickened slightly, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the salad and sauce.


Make the salad and tamarind sauce

  • Trim the root end from the frisée; coarsely chop enough leaves to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Juice the lime.

In a large bowl, toss together the frisée, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, using a fork, stir together the tamarind paste and 3 tablespoons [6 TBL] very hot water until a smooth sauce forms. 


Finish the potato-pea filling

To the bowl with the potatoes, add the curry powder and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Using a fork or the back of a wooden spoon, lightly mash the potatoes. Gently stir in the peas. 


Transfer the tortillas to individual plates and spread each with a heaping spoonful of the potato-pea filling. Top with the chickpea mixture, tamarind sauce, and salad and serve.
