My family does not like store bought wraps and so i have now resorted to making them myself from scratch. The other day i got an idea to flavor them with herbs, sesame seeds, nigella seeds and black pepper. Obviously i wasnt going to make soo much different flavored doughs so i even thought of a technique!!! What i like about home made wraps is that they taste better and can be made and frozen and then taken out when needed. The dough keeps fresh in the fridge for a few days too!! You can fill them with almost anything but my family favourite is chicken tikka. I made an unusual sweet and sour salad to go with it!! So here i am sharing all the whole recipe.

First we start with the wraps
500 grams of white flour
125 grams of room temperature natural white yogurt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
salt to taste
warm water as needed
sesame seeds, nigella seeds, cumin seeds, black pepper, oregano, garlci flakes for flavoring
Put the yogurt for a few seconds in the microwave to heat (if you have one…if not skip this step or put the yogurt in the sun for half an hour)
Add the soda bicarbonate and baking powder and salt
Add the white flour and make a dough using warm water as needed
Work the dough for five minutes till well keaded
Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about 3-4 hours to rise a bit.
Make small balls out of the dough. Flatten it a bit. Dip one ball in white flour and starting rolling  a bit into a round. Sprinkle with flavoring of your choice on one side.
Roll to seal in the flavoring and repeat on the other side.
Keep on rolling till its nice and thin
(for reference you can see my youtube video on paratha.. yourtube cookingwithnitu paratha
Heat an iron gridle or skillet and cook the wraps on each side till done.
Do not over cook as they will become hard,
Store in an airtight container and use when needed.
If using the next day refrigerate
These can be frozen.

350 grams of boneless chicken breast, in thick fillets
3-4 tablespoons of sour white yogurt
2-3 cloves of garlic
a small piece of ginger
1 tablespoon of Nitu Didi tandoori spice powder
few drops of red food coloring
salt to taste
red chilli powder to taste for spice
Blend the yogurt, ginger garlic in a blender to make a paste. Add the tandoori spice and coloring and red chilli powder.
Marinate the chicken fillets in this marinade overnight.
Grill them in a greased frying pan or a grill or barbecue them.
If grilling in a pan grill them and later flame them over the gas stove to get that lovely bbq flavor.
Cut into strips and its ready to be filled into the wraps.
