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:

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!


  1. Wow, Sly, Beautiful and tasty-looking. I've only had success at a few indian dishes at home, but I am going to try this! mmmmmmmmm!

  2. Looks delicious. As always. :) Well done, Sly!

  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!
