Peel, chop, and boil the potatoes for 15 min. Drain but reserve about ½ a cup of water. Add a pinch of the curry powder, turmeric, reserved water, and a touch of salt. Cover and set aside. Turn your oven to 350F. On a baking tray, mix the whole cauliflower, then the chickpeas, Chaat masala, and olive oil. Ensure everything is coated and bake in the oven for about 25min. Stir it after about 15min. Heat your roti and then assemble. Spread a thin layer of the potato mash on the base. Then add your roasted veggies and any other fillings you like. 


Eggplant Lasagna 

Easy to make with simple ingredients, budget-friendly, and rich in flavor. Once you’ve tried it, you know you will wow everyone, even pickiest eaters. This easy recipe is a good option for any family meal that you can always count on. 


  • Vegan ricotta
  • Eggplants + olive oil
  • Marinara
  • Garlic
  • Vegan mozzarella
  • Vegan Parmesan
  • 3 tsp Italian herbs


Start with cutting eggplants into thin slices. Heat olive oil in a pan and fry the eggplants for around 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper then set aside. Make sure the oil is hot. This way, you will get a much better texture and flavor. After frying, make sure to remove any remaining oil. If needed, use a kitchen crepe.

Next, mix marinara with garlic in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Lastly, be ready for layering your lasagna. Start with a layer of the marinara sauce on the bottom, followed by eggplants, vegan ricotta, marinara, and a bit of vegan Parmesan, vegan mozzarella. Repeat until everything is perfectly stacked. The last layer should be a bit of marinara and ricotta, garnished with Parmesan and Mozzarella.

Bon appetit!
