For Chicken Fry

  • 500 grams chicken
  • 2 Tbsp Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp, ginger garlic paste
  • 1 Tsp pepper powder
  • 1 Tbsp, lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1 Tsp, garam masala powder
  • 1 Tsp, cumin powder
  • 1 Tbsp, oil
  • salt to taste

1. In a mixing bowl, add chicken and rest of the ingredients. Mix well and allow it to rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

2. In a frying pan, add 2 Tbsp oil, fry the chicken until cooked. ( Or you can deep fry the chicken)

3. Let the chicken cool, now shred the chicken into small bite-size pieces. Set aside.

For Tortillas

  • 1 and half cup, all purpose flour (maida)
  • 3 Tbsp, clarified butter (ghee)
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • water
  1. In a bowl, add all purpose flour, salt, ghee and rub it into the flour. Now add water, little by little and knead it to form a soft dough. Cover and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. After 15 min. remove the cover and knead for a minute. Now divide the Dough into equal size balls.
  3. Take one ball, dust in some All Purpose Flour and roll to form Rotis (Tortillas).
  4. Heat the pan, and cook slightly on both side, till you see the dough color change and bubbles start to appear.
  5. Keep Tortillas aside.

For the filling

  • 1 medium sized capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, finely chopped ( I have used seedless)
  • 1 medium sized carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 2 Tsp, black pepper powder
  • 1 Tbsp, lemon juice

1.In a bowl, add all veggies, salt, black pepper powder, lemon juice and mix well. Set aside.

Note: You can cut and keep aside all vegetables before, but add salt, and lemon juice just before the use, so that veggies don’t release water.

For Sauce

Add 2 Tbsp garlic mayonnaise and 2 Tbsp of tomato ketchup. Mix well and set aside.
