Instant Chicken Pita sandwiches with curd sauce

Instant Chicken Pita sandwiches with curd sauce

Necessity is the mother of invention

You wake on a Saturday morning to see no bread , no dosa batter …mind was blank as what to make breakfast for Haseeb as he doesn’t like cornflakes or poha …To my luck supermarket guy didn’t deliver the things I had ordered , In panic opened the fridge to see left over tandoori chicken and pita breads and instantly made these sandwiches in 15 minutes but was very skeptical to serve Haseeb but seeing me cooking in panic he quietly took the plate from me ….

I didn’t wait to see his reaction after 1st bite and after sometime he came inside and said sandwich was fantastic and next was mom , she said the taste was so different and willingly took the next sandwich …I requested Rayyan to taste the sandwich and he compared it the sandwich that he had in Starbucks …. Couldn’t have asked for such appreciation as this sandwich was made in such a hurry

If you don’t have pita bread , you can make it using normal bread


  • Mini Pita breads – as required
  • Tandoori chicken – 1 cup ( I used left over chicken , you can marinate chicken with yogurt , ginger garlic paste ,pices , salt and cook till its done )
  • Sliced onions – 1 cup
  • Chopped capsicum – 1/4 cup ( you can add cabbage or zucchini )
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Chopped Lettuce – 1 cup ( soak in cold water so that it retain its crunchiness)

Curd Sauce

  • Curd – 3 tbsp
  • Tahini – 1 tsp ( sesame paste ) you can add 1 tsp whole sesame seeds if you don’t have paste )
  • Mustard paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Cheese spread – 1 tbsp
  • Chili flakes – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a pan add oil , along with that add onions and cook for a minute in high flame , if you are using zucchini then add at this time
  2. Add the cooked tandoori chicken pieces , cook for another minute then add capsicum and cabbage if you like and remove from fire
  3. Cut the pita breads in the center and toast it for a minute , open the bread , spread the sauce , add the tandoori chicken masala and then add lettuce leaves and close it
  4. Serve immediately

I made these sandwiches in 15 minutes

Happy cooking
