Chicken Bharta Wrap

Traveling is great but coming back to the comfort of your home and routine? Nothing compares. Or maybe I am an old soul trapped in a 35 yo’s body 🤪
Anyway, this is the longest I have been away from home and home food and surprisingly enough I kind of de-stressed putting this simple meal of Chicken Bharta wrap together. As I jokingly mentioned to my mother on the phone , as the kids kept themselves busy in their room, that this felt like a vacation after the past two weeks of being on the road! I am sure the chores would soon start weighing me down and the need to run away from it all would become pressing again but until then I am going to savor this comforting feeling of familiarity and routine.Coming back to the wrap, I adapted the recipe for Chicken Bharta from Sukanya’s blog (https://saffronstreaks.com/recipes/dhaba-style-chicken-bharta-the-punjabi-flavour-to-the-cuisine-of-kolkata/) and modified it a bit for the wrap; used corn tortillas, chopped lettuce , shredded pepper jack cheese, chili flakes and coriander for garnish and done! A very satisfying quick meal.
