Skinny Tandoori Chicken Fajita (Wraps)...step by step.



Tandoori chicken wraps are the skinnier (Indian) version of "Fajita", and my daughter's favorite. In the last post I mentioned that my daughter is having study holidays and that means she is hungry every 15 min......I made this tandoori wraps for her as a treat....since she is becoming a bit calorie conscious, I made this skinny for her.

Tandoori chicken is shredded and mixed with vegetables and spices and wraped with Whole wheat roti/flatbread.....with no cheese and just 1 tbsp of oil....and drizzled with homemade yogurt....an Indianised Fajita inspired wrap.

I am using only 1 tbsp of oil to make it skinny .....plus this is cheese free.

So easy and simple if you have left over or store-bought tandoori chicken pieces ( pls go to my tandoori chicken post if you have the time to make one).

Easy way to make a meal from left overs.



An easy lunch box meal for kids and office goers .....An easy hazzle-free meal on the go.

Serves: One.(makes two wraps)

To make this wrap, I used store-bought tandoori chicken left overs.
Ingredients: 
Flatbread/Roti: 2.
Tandoori Chicken: One piece, shredded (boneless).
Onion: 1 medium, sliced.
Tomato: 1/2 of one medium, sliced.
Capsicum: 1/4 of one medium, sliced.
Kashmiri Chilly Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric Powder: A fat pinch.
Kasuri Methi: 1 tsp.
Coriander leaves: 1 sprig chopped.
Oil: 1 tsp.
Salt to taste.
Yogurt: 2 tsp.

Method:
In a pan, heat oil and on high flame and put in the sliced onion, sliced tomatoes and stir fry for 2 minutes. Simmer the fire and add in the sliced capsicum.



Stir for a minute or two or until the tomatoes get a little mushy.


Then add in the chilly powder, pepper powder, turmeric, and salt.


Give it a nice stir and add in the kasuri methi..this give that subtle desi flavor...it is best to rub kasuri methi with your fingers to release the flavor.

And now the best part...add in the shredded tandoori chicken....mix well.


Switch off fire and add in the chopped coriander leaves....stir well.


Heat one flatbread/roti on a tawa and put half of the filling inside and drizzle a tsp of yogurt on top. Roll from one side and stick a tooth pick in the middle if needed. You can make two wraps with this filling.

# I did not oil the roti while heating to make it skinny; you can oil it on both sides if you are not diet conscious;  a tbsp of ghee on the roti will defiantly make it a fuller meal.
#If you are packing it for lunch, it is best to wrap in a foil paper.

That's it.... your Indianised fajita or skinny tandoori chicken wraps are ready.


Enjoy your wraps with yogurt as a side dip.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
