My Notes:

  • I have placed the fillings after keeping the tortilla in the skillet. Instead, you can choose to fill the tortilla on a plate and then place it on the skillet
  • If knife is not sharp you can even cut the cooked Quesadilla with knife (I followed this procedure)

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.

  • 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
