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.
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.
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.
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.
2 cups Plain yogurt
1 cucumbers – peeled and diced
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!
