Asian Style wrap

This recipe came out of the blue and it is an absolute delight for protein lovers. I wanted to cook something that is healthy as well as filling. And as much as the ingredients are concerned, it is very basic and can be found in the everyday pantry. I didn’t use tortillas but I did make fresh rotis (wholewheat flat breads) for this wrap.

The coleslaw could be termed as Asian style slaw and it can be easily consumed as a salad. This is a very easy recipe and it takes about 20 minutes to prepare as I have suggested pickling the veggies for some time. 

You can, of course, cut short the process and prepare the slaw without the pickling process. Sometimes I find the pickling method a little too time consuming; thereby I forego the whole process.

This is a tried and tested recipe and it works wonders with kids too. It is incredibly easy to prepare, doesn’t require any kitchen skills and is very nutritious.
The recipe is as follows (serves 1): J

For the Slaw:
½ cup cabbage shredded
¼ cup carrot shredded
Salt and Sugar to taste
1 tbsp Mayonnaise
2 tbsp Sesame oil
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
In a large bowl, mix 1 tbsp salt and 1 tbsp sugar and add the cabbage and carrot. Top it up with boiling water, give it a mix and set aside for about 15minutes in which time the patties will be done.
Strain the cabbage and carrots and let all the water drain. Then add the mayonnaise, 2tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp soy sauce and mix thoroughly. Add salt and sugar to taste.

For the Patties:
1 cup minced chicken
½ inch piece of giner
3 cloves of garlic
2 green/ red chilies
1 small onion chopped finely
2 tbsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Mix the minced chicken with 2 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Mince the ginger, garlic and chilies (which can be adjusted according to taste). Mix it with the chicken mince and set aside.
Form patties (the size of your palm) with the mince and put it on a hot griddle pan. Cook until done. (While forming the patties, rub a little vegetable oil on your palm. That will be enough to cook the patties on the griddle later)

For the Wrap:
2 flour tortillas or homemade rotis
Toast the tortillas/rotis (whichever you are using) on a griddle pan/any non-stick pan just until they are just warm.

Assembly: Now it’s just about assembling the ingredients: Cut the patties length wise and put it on the warm rotis/tortillas, throw in some of the slaw/salad on top of the chicken and it is ready to eat.

(You can use any non stick pan. Personally, I absolutely adore those griddle marks on the patties and of course it is cooked in much lesser oil)
