  • Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until light golden, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, curry powder and cumin; saute for 1 minute. Set aside.

  • Mash chickpeas in a bowl with a potato masher or a fork. Stir in yogurt, chutney and the onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the chickpea mixture among 3 of the tortillas, spreading evenly. Top with the remaining tortillas and press to seal.
