Store-bought chapata bread (or pita bread) are just right for filling with a savory mixture of thinly sliced leek, shredded cabbage, and coarsely grated carrot that's sauteed until tender and seasoned with curry powder along with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Once the breads are stuffed, you can drizzle the filling with olive oil and sprinkle with parsley just before serving, for lunch or as part of a tapas style dinner.
