This is one of my favorite quick meals; delicious chicken prepared with onions, tomatoes, and peppers. Topped with eggs, tangy herb chutney & hot ‘n’ sweet ketchup and are wrapped in homemade chapati. I have been eating variations of this dish since my childhood, you can substitute the chicken for lamb, beef or even paneer or stir-fried chickpeas & vegetables.
