I was meant to be collecting a jar of mayonnaise from the shelf when I saw it: Zesty Mojito Sauce! Zesty Mojito Sauce?! Without question, it ended up in the shopping trolley alongside the mayo. I had no idea how I'd use it, but as we passed a pack of chapatis, a recipe--this recipe started to form in my mind.

Chapatis, from the perspective of a person of a non Indian or Pakistani background, resembles in texture and appearance, Mexican tortillas. Chapati, or roti, are unleavened breads popular in South Asian cuisine, often served with curries. The amazing thing about a chapati is that it's not just a bit of bread on the side. It's often used as a sort of edible spoon for scooping up bits of food. Check out this informative tutorial for how to eat with chapatis.

While I know that the any Indian or Pakistani readers might hang their head in shame and outrage at the gall of this post, I can't help but see these delightful round breads as tortillas! Blame it on my culinary upbringing, which was heavily-influenced by Mexican cuisine, but the fact remains: when I see a tortilla-shaped object, I just can't resist folding meat and sauce within it and eating it like a taco!

Oh, let's just get on with the recipe before I dig myself into a bit of a hole! :) I will say this--it's not the way chapatis were intended to be eaten, but I think it's quite tasty!
