Burrito – Indian Style

Burrito is one of our favorite dishes. When ever we eat this at Mexican restaurants, hubby tells me ” why can’t we prepare this at home? “. Last week I told him that I am preparing black bean gravy for  roti, hearing that he said he would get tortilla, so that I can try making burrito. I tried this version of burrito, and to my surprise it was a hit! Though it was different from authentic Mexican burritos, we liked this version.





Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 10 mins | Serves : 1

Recipe Category: Entree


Wheat tortilla – 1

Black Bean Gravy – 3 tbsp

Guacamole – 2 tbsp

Black Olives – 4

Grated cheese –  2 tsp ( I used cheddar and mozzarella)


  • Cook tortilla (I microwaved for 30 sec each side, instead you can even cook tortilla in a skillet)
  • Lay the tortilla out on a plate, Spread the black bean gravy, guacamole, olives and cheese on the tortilla, leaving a 1-inch outer border without any filling


  • Fold the top and bottom side for about 1 inch and fold the side close to the filling and  Roll over tightly, then tuck in the sides and continue rolling. The avocado should help the burrito stay together




Check out my other black bean recipes,

MY Notes:

  • Instead of tortilla you can even try burrito with chappati
