Cafe Asia Handmade Chicken Tikka Wrap (Iceland) [By @Cinabar]
The lovely folks from Cafe Asia got in touch and wanted to know if we wanted to try out their range of goodies stocked in Iceland. I wasn’t sure what to expect but as someone who rather likes samosas and onion bhajis I couldn’t resist saying yes. When I looked in store it turned out that their range was far more vast than I’d thought and I found myself picking up this Cafe Asia Chicken Tikka Wrap. I also got a bag of samosas and chicken pakoras for the freezer, for later.
The Chicken Tikka Wrap had caught my attention so I went for that first. To heat it you can oven bake it for 20 minutes, or zap in the microwave for 2.5 minutes, so it simple to cook.
The wrap was fully covered at either end, which is a good thing, as it means that nothing falls out when you are eating your way through it!
The wrap is filled with chicken tikka pieces, pilau rice and chutney. I gave it the taste test and let the spices mingles on my taste buds. There is loads of flavour to absorb, the chicken is very fragrant and has a good whack of chilli heat. The rice and green peppers makes the wrap feel substantial and the chicken was moist and tasty.
Did I mention the coriander chutney, because it was spot on. I think it is safe to safe that coriander is one of my favourite herbs, it has such a fab bitter but fresh taste, and I loved its addition in the wrap.
If the quality of this Cafe Asia Chicken Tikka Wrap is anything to go by, I am rather looking forward to trying out the rest of the goodies from the brand in my freezer.
