Easy chicken wrap

I never caught on the trend on popular social media sites. I have Facebook for occasional stalking  staying in touch with friends. But things like Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest I just do not get. My lack of talents for photography means that I will not be able to catch the perfect shot. I do not feel the constant need to express my emotions with a limited number of characters and my interest is already printed in things called cookbooks. Maybe I am more of a receiver of social media but not an active contributor. Or maybe I am just too old to be able to understand such trends, at least my mind is stuck in the past. Watching people around me share their life on social media makes yearn to be more socially active at times. But honestly, when the next tab of a new recipe is done loading those thoughts vanish. Maybe another time and in a parallel universe for me and social media. 

Now on a totally unrelated note, this is a wholesome chicken wrap for a to-go lunch !

Healthy Tandoori Chicken

I have always thought that Indian food was hard to recreate given the amount of spices required. So even though I love Indian food , I have never attempted to cook it. Perhaps its the unfamiliarity with the spices that made me fear failure. However, my recent trip to Little India along Serangoon Road made me change my perspective. Was it the people or was it the fresh good ingredients I saw ? Frankly, I do not recall much of it. But all I know is that I was determined to try cooking Indian food . So for my first attempt, I decided to make Tandoori Chicken paired with some pre-made Dhal and chickpeas in sauce. It was glorious. So my advice is to venture into the unknown and you might just realise something new about yourself.
