Introduction: Pickle Spice Chicken Tacos
This dish is one from my list of comfort foods and also the favorite one . As the concept says comfort foods, so considering the fact and also according to me , I choose the dish of which ingredients are available in every home and can be made quickly.
Here the main ingredients are chicken(if vegetarian , you can use soyabean or cottage cheese) , pickle spice and papadums. Pickle spice is the prime ingredient of this dish as this will provide all the tangy -spicy taste and will leave you spellbound after eating. I have used homemade mango pickle. As in winters, we prefer hot and spicy food as it provides warmth to the body , that's why this dish is considered favourite in my family especially in cold times.
The papadums that i have used is also a very basic ingredient and can be found in every home , if not you can replace it with tortillas . But i prefer papadums because of its aroma and roasted spicy taste.
