Recipe type: Brunch
Cuisine: Pakistani
Serves: 4

  • 1 lb (450g) Zamzam boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • ½ cup each, divided, fresh, chopped: coriander, mint
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ inch piece ginger, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp each, ground: garam masala, coriander, cumin, dried fenugreek leaves (kasoori methi)
  • ½ tsp each: red chilli powder (cayenne pepper), roasted ground cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¼ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 cup each, thinly sliced: onions, red pepper, green pepper
  • 4 large whole-wheat tortillas, warmed

  1. Place chicken in large mixing bowl. Add 2 tbsp of fresh coriander and mint, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, salt and spices (except roasted cumin). Mix well to coat chicken with marinade. Cover and refrigerate 15 min or longer.
  2. Warm oil in non-stick skillet set over medium high heat. Add cumin seeds, sauté 30 sec. Add sliced onions and peppers, sauté for 5 min, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are slightly softened. Add marinated chicken, sauté, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 min.
  3. Remove from heat, fold in the remaining fresh herbs and roasted ground cumin seeds.
  4. Divide chicken mixture evenly over warm tortillas, fold to make a wrap.

Special Serving Idea: Line rolls with green chutney, salad and chicken mixture, then top with a drizzle of mint yogurt raita! Toast rolls in non-stick frying pan over medium heat for 3-4 min, to crisp them up. Chef’s Tip: Add other vegetables to chicken such as sliced zucchini, mushrooms or peas. Add a slice of light cheese to each roll. Substitute whole-wheat chapatti for the tortilla.
