Curried Chicken Baps
Garam masala is an elaborate and aromatic mixture of ground spices often used in Indian cooking. It usually includes coriander and cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper. It is normally bought readymade and, together with the curry powder, adds a slightly aromatic, Indian taste to these simple baps. The word bap is used to describe any soft, round, flat bread roll. It is a traditional name, often used more frequently in the north of England, which dates back to the 16th century. This recipe uses whole meal baps, which should not be too large.

275 Grams of Cooked Chicken
4 Whole meal baps

Wash and thoroughly dry the lettuce and cut it into shreds using a sharp knife. Dice the chicken into ½ inches cubes and stir it in with all the ingredients for the dressing in a mixing bowl.
Without cutting right through, cut the baps in half and open them out. Sandwich the curried chicken mixture in between 2 layers of lettuce and close the baps. Serve, or warp well to keep fresh.
