Chicken Tikka Burrito

So for the past couple of weeks I've been dropping my Chutney's for one of their chicken kabob rolls. First of all they do nan in the Pakastani style, much thicker than Indian. And they heap up lots of onions and raita and cucumber / tomato mix along with a goodly amount of tikka on top of the nan. They then roll it really, really tight in wax paper and aluminum foil. I usually dish up a few little plastic containers of their light green sauce and a couple of their bright red / sweet & hot sauce and finally a few of their pickled vegetables which includes lots of jalapeno's, etc.

This is one filling and delicious lunch. Do not remove the cover, just peel it down as you consume your Indian burrito. I like this better than the frankie at Bombay by a mile. With tax out the door $5.41

SE corner of Barrington and Pico in the little mini mall.

  1. That sounds like a good idea: however, how spicy was it?

    Or to put the question another way, was the spicy-ness all in the add-on suaces or was there some heat inside their Pakistani Burrito already?

    Is one to assume that their light green sauce is Mint Chutney or something else?

      The burrito is not spicy, but it has a lot of aji (taste). I like to add a little of both sauces, plus some of the pickled vegetables to each bite. And the light green sauce is indeed a mint based sauce, but it's not spicy. They also have a dark green one that is mint based as well, but that one has a good amount of heat to it.

    2. This sounds a lot like the "chicken tikka sandwhich lunch special (weekdays only)" at the Bombay Cafe (or is it "Grill"?) on Santa Monica in the Hollywood mini-mall with TJ's. Anyone been recently?

      1. What "kind' of chicken i.e. white or dark meat?

          It's made with typical chicken tikka pieces which I believe are all made from breast meat.

        2. Awesome! These sound like roomali rolls, which are really popular in NY. I've been looking for something like this in LA. Do they include eggs in them by any chance?

            No eggs. The other nice thing about Chutney's is that they offer "meat" samosa's. Normally I tend to find only potato and pea samosa's.

              Ah well, I usually prefer them without egg anyway. Sounds promising -- thanks for the tip!

              You may have a career in advertising, Bob. I will riff off of your excellent effort and say it's a "Nanuritto"
