      Good flavour, easy to make - just a little 'boring', needed mango chutney to spice up a bit

      These reminded me of Indian Potato Parathas I used to buy at my local farmer's market. I really love the color and the flavor. These were easy to assemble, too. Nice and savory, I found I needed a little extra salt. I used tortillas and fried them in light oil. I might consider adding peas to these next time. Yum!
