Burrito With A Twist

Burrito is a type of Mexican food, A wheat tortilla  filled with refried beans and meat then fold in to a roughly cylindrical shape. In Mexico the filling will be refried beans, meat, but there are many ingredients we can see in United States. Generally they include the combinations of ingredients are Mexican style rice, or plain rice with beans, Lettuce, salsa, meat, avocado, cheese and sour cream. But To day I give a twist to that Mexican favorite food with Indian ingredients.Actually we can choose many  Indian ingredients like pulav with kurma any vegetable rice with gravy curry or dalmakhani, plain rice with any gravy curry and chutney. In this recipe my choice was simple dal chawal, aloo ki sabji with salad and little green chutney. I really enjoyed this as my today's lunch. It's filling I like the different flavors what I tasted in US.. Next time will try the other combinations

Whole wheat tortillas --- 2
Plain steamed rice  --- 1 cup (can use any other rice like pulav, jeera rice)
Dal thadka -- 1 cup (can use any dal like palak dal or dalmakhani )

Green chutney --- 1 tab sp
Carrot --- 1 small cut in to long strips
Cucumber --- 1 small cut in to long strips If you like can add any other salad s that is totally your choice.
