Our local corner shop does a great one, but make your own if you want.

The Chicken
Puree garlic, ginger, chilli, oil & lime
Meanwhile toast the whole spices then grind them. Combine this, the powdered spices and the puréed aromatics. You want a sloppy marinade that will happily coat the chicken. Loosen with more oil if you need to.
Rub marinade into the thighs, getting it right under the skin.
Leave in fridge for 24 hours.

THE NEXT DAY
Wipe off excess marinade from the chicken and BBQ until slightly charred and just done (if you’re not bbq-ing obviously you can roast these, but might be worth starting in a fierce pan to give you a bit of char.)

Meanwhile, finely dice parsley, cucumber & tomato, lightly salt and combine, draining away any excess moisture.

Purée the garlic clove, a little salt, yoghurt, lemon juice & mint leaves for “garlic sauce”.

Thinly slice the cabbage and both pickled. Take leaves from coriander.

Thinly slice 1/2 a red onion, the fresh red chillies and squeeze over lime juice and a dusting of salt. Leave for at least 15 mins to take the burn out.

We also had some grated cheddar cheese. I know, not authentic and greedy, but I am the Greedy Rat…..

Now thinly slice the rested chicken thighs, mixing up with any juices that have collected. Warm the wraps in a dry pan.

Build your supper as done in the kebab shop, making sure to carefully fold the bottom, this baby’s going to be leaky ….
