Chicken Methi Flatbread Triangles..with Spiced Yogurt Dip

In between the new utensils and arrays of old crockery, there sits a 1 metre square kitchen counter top space, where all the magic happens. If the countertop can talk, it will tell tales of tireless rolling of flatbreads, shaping up of rolls with flour mess everywhere. It will whisper tales of teary eyes when chopping the onions for after-work hurried curries and stews. It will tap dance of pride that this little space has seen mocktails being mixed then served to guests, cookies baked and cooled, a sanctuary where even simple things are cherished, like these flaky chicken and fenugreek filled flatbreads.

I know some of you would shudder at the thought of rolling each bread, then stand by the stove to grill each one when you can get them from any grocery stores for pennies. Silly me, I know. But then you would be hard pressed to buy such  premium flatbreads filled with shredded roasted chicken, grated sharp cheddar and aromatic methi ( fenugreek leaves), for that you have to make your own! Just roll your sleeve and start cooking. I already told you about how fun it was here.

For snacking, I love to cut them into triangles then dip into the favourite sauce available. Let’s be healthy and enjoy them with yogurt sauce, shall we? Tangy and lightly spiced with paprika and minced garlic, this kind of snacking is forgivable, and should even be included for your toddler’s meal deal. They get a seal of approval from the fussy one here (and the fussy husband!).

If you are not familiar with fenugreek leaves, you can get them from specialty shops, they are great to prevent diabetes and regulate hormonal imbalance. They are very fragrant too! To make this recipe vegetarian, just swap the chicken with paneer, or even cooked tofu- both taste great.
