Chapati wraps with Masala Chicken and Yogurt Cucumber sauce

I am always fascinated with the different wraps that are served in different restaurants. I decided to use my favorite Indian bread, Chapati instead of the usual tortilla. I am including the recipe for chapatis at the bottom. It is really very easy and something that was a staple in our home. Chapatis are also readily available in any Indian food store. Personally, I think if you can find it pre-made go ahead and buy it.

Chapati Recipe:

Here is a link to a chef who explains the entire process quite well. Don’t be intimidated – this is really a very easy and fairly quick process.

Masala Chicken

6 chicken tenderloin

1 cup of chopped up cilantro

1 small onion – diced

Garam Masala – 1/4 cup if wet mix. 2 tablespoons if you have the dry mix.

Directions:

Marinade the chicken tenderloin by covering it well with the garam masala, onions and the cilantro. Marinade in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Once it heats up, place the chicken tenderloin in the pan and pan-fry it. This should not take more than 10 minutes. Once it looks done, remove from the skillet. Once the chicken cools, diced it up or cut it up in a bowl.

Yogurt Sauce

2 cups Plain yogurt

1 cucumbers – peeled and diced

Directions:

Combine the yogurt and cucumber in a bowl. Mix it really well and salt to taste. You can also add some diced tomatoes (Fresh only)

Putting the Wrap together

Now, it is just an assembling job.

Lay a chapati flat on a plate,  add a spoonful of diced chicken in the middle, add some fresh cilantro is desired and add a spoonful of the yogurt sauce. You also add a handful of fresh spinach or lettuce. Now, just gently fold and wrap the chapati.

That is all there is to it!
