Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, Alta Calidad’s mushroom roti steals our hearts (and stomachs).

The mesmerizing whirling dervish of the white sauce drizzled in a spiral on chef Akhtar Nawab’s roti—a dish designed his stand at our Dumbo market—is reason enough to make the dish memorable.
The flatbread is one of the most clear representations of Nawab’s cooking style at the intersection of Mexican and Indian flavors, a combination emphasized at his Prospect Heights stellar restaurant, Alta Calidad.
The flatbread is 12-inches, a huge portion, which you’ll need at least another person to help you finish. It's priced at $16.
On top of the circular carb base are black beans, poblano, salsa, onions and cilantro as well as a surplus of saucily-cooked mushrooms. The dish is one of the more filling ones at the Time Out Market, that still feels, dare say, healthy?
Either way, it's one that we keep coming back to again and again.
