Dal Makhani Burrito

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Tuesday, May 13, 2008 | 10:08 AM

Indians and Mexicans have a lot in common apart from the food. Just the other day I found out that they call their grandfather thatha as we do in Tamil.The marriage of Mexican and Indian flavors blends and creates some interesting and tasty food. During the football season my husband's friends always come over to watch the San diego Chargers play. I decided to offer them lunch instead of some snacks. This is how I came up with the burrito. I had some dal makhani from dinner and took it up another notch and used it instead of the refried beans to prepare a burrito.Next time you have some channa masala, dal makhani or any curry you can try to make it into a burrito. This main course is my entry to DK's Culinary Bazaar's A Worldly Epicurean’s Delight – In short A.W.E.D. event for the month of May.


Cutting board


Tortilla - 1
Sour cream - 1 tbsp
Cilantro salsa - 2tbsp ( just any normal salsa will do but just add more cilantro )
Rice cooked - 1/2 cup ( I used basmati rice)
Avocado - 1/2
Dal Makhani - 1/4 cup
Roasted peppers - 1 small tin
Cilantro - 1tbsp
Tomatoes - 2
Oil - 1tsp
Chilli Powder - 1tsp
Salt to taste
Garlic - 2 cloves


1. Heat the wok.Add some oil and garlic. Add 2 chopped tomato and salt and cook for a few minutes. Add roasted jalapenos and chilli powder and cook for a few minutes.Allow it to cool.

2. Heat the Tava and warm up the tortilla.

4. Place the rice on the warm tortilla and then add dal makhani, salsa, sour cream, avocados, cilantro in such a way that when you fold the tortilla the rice is on the outside and the rest are engulfed inside the rice.

5. Serve with some chips and salsa and you are good to go.
