Jaipur Burritos – Sara – Fusion Challenge

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.


Jaipur Vegetables

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!

  3. Oh yum... great fusion! And cashews and raisins in with the veggies. Yeah, we're totally trying this, but probably on store-bought tortillas!
