How I survived during COVID-19 lockdown | Quick Recipe to make Chicken Roll

Recap of how I survived during COVID-19 nationwide lockdown.

I ensured to keep stock of frozen food during Lockdown because of Corona Virus spread as going out to buy veggies was not a simple task. Stayed at Home and made easy and quick wraps / rolls made from frozen food. Ensured not to consume anything raw during the spread of COVID-19, even onions should be sauteed! Instead of Chicken Seekh Kebabs you may use other frozen meats like Salami, Sausages, even Veg patty.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Wheat Roti / Tortilla, Frozen Seekh Kebabs, Sambel Chilli Garlic Sauce, half diced red onion, Maggi hot and sweet sauce, grate cheese if required to make it cheesy. #StayAtHome

There are variety of nuts and each has its own resource of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, and it is thereby important to get to know what, which and how much to incorporate these nuts in our diets.
