Turkish Chicken wraps have a very different look and taste.  Although I haven't tried it with soft tortillas, I am thinking they would likely work well as well.  In authentic recipe, there is not ketchup or mayonnaise but my family felt they go well with this and use it so I added them to my recipe.

3-4 Chicken breasts
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 - 3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
Optional: currie and allspice

Lavash bread or Indian Roti bread

Fried potatos, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced onions with sumac, garlic pickles, hot peppers, ketchup, mayonnaise
  • Slice chicken legthwise
  • Add olive oil, salt, tomato paste, thyme, black pepper and red pepper
  • Mix well and marinade for 3-4 hours in the fridge
  • Cook at medium heat until all the juice comes out and evaporates.  This takes over an hour of cooking.  You can continue to stir fry in its own juice at the very end.
  • While chicken is cooking prepare the potatos.  Peel, wash and cut them in small cubes.  Fry them in small amount of olive oil.  Add salt at the end
  • Get all the filling option cut up and ready
  • Serve in warmed lavash bread.  I used Indian roti bread.

Some people love Broccoli while others don't even like them.  Those who don't like Broccoli but try to eat them do it usually because they know how good it is for their health.  My household is no different. My husband likes them plain, my yougest daughter will only eat it if it is made with this recipe.  Me and my older daughter will eat Broccoli in any recipe because we love them.  If you are one of those people who try with Broccoli, you must try this recipe.  I hope you enjoy it.

1/2 kg. Broccoli
2 full tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
salt, blackpepper
1/2 cup permasean cheese
1 cup shreded mozerrella cheese
  • Separate Broccoli florets and boil them lightly in salted water making sure they are not too soft
  • In a pan, melt butter and  add flour.  Cook until the flour changes colour to light yellow.  I find this to be the most difficult part of this recipe as the flour sticks to the wooden spoon.  Make sure you have a fork handy to scrape off the spoon so you can continue to cook
  • Add mik.  Reduce heat and cook until the sauce thickens a bit
  • Add Permasean cheese and remove from heat
  • Mix the sauce with broccoli
  • Spray the bottom of your pan
  • Pour Broccoli and the sauce.  Try to make sure broccoli is single layer.  It should not be too thick.
  • Sprinkle shreded cheddar cheese
  • Cook at 350 degree preheated oven until the top is golden brown (approx 20 minutes)
