I decided to mix two things I love Mexican and Indian! I absolutely love making my own flour tortillas, it’s super easy and delicious. I also love Tasty Bite Jaipur Vegetables and gave a homemade version a go. So I decided to fill a burrito with Jaipur veges & basmati rice.
Here’s an easy flour tortilla recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/Flour-Tortilla-Recipe-204109
After you’ve formed a dough ball, cover it and let it rest while you prepare the Jaipur Veges.
2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
5 each cloves whole
5 each cardamom pods
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil mild
1 medium onion sliced
1 medium tomato peeled, chopped
3-4 small red potatoes
1/2 cup snap peas
1/2 cup green beans
1 medium carrot
2 tablespoons tomato paste
10 each cashew nuts whole
1/4 cup raisins, seedless
1 cup cream, half and half
1 tablespoon butter (ghee if you have it)
1/2 cup hard tofu or paneer
1. Toast cumin and coriander seeds for approx 5 minutes and then grind with cloves and the extracted cardamom pods (or just use pre-ground stuff)
2. Chop up veges however you’d like and begin to stir fry with the oil.
3. Add in everything except tofu/paneer and simmer on lower heat until everything is soft stirring every minute or so. (Add in tofu/paneer after you don’t need to stir as much.)
While the Jaipur veges were cooking, I rolled out flour tortillas.
And cooked them on a heated cast iron pan each side for approx a minute.
Mixed some rice and Jaipur vegetables and then went to my husband for the last step. He can roll a burrito like no one. Here’s the proof!
It was really good, although, I don’t think the rice was necessary. I think I’d preferred it with solely Jaipur Veges! Thumbs up though, for sure!
