1 tsp Capcico or Tabesco Sauce or any hot chili sauce
Pinch of salt
Wash and soak Bajra and Rajma (separately) for 8-10 hours or overnight. After that rinse again and boil in salted water. Remember we don’t want them to be mushy. There should be some crunch so do not overcook.
Soak soya granules in hot water for half an hour and then squeeze the water and set it aside. Boil sweet corn kernels for 3 minutes. Drain and set it aside.
For salsa – Mix all the ingredients and set it in refrigerator.
For Curd Dip – Mix well all the ingredients and make a smooth sauce consistency.
Making of filling – Heat little oil in a large pan or kadhai, add chopped onions and sauté till they start turning brown, add chopped garlic, green chili and cook for another couple of minutes. Now add chopped tomatoes with little water. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Now add all the spices, mix well and add cooked bajra, rajma, soaked soya granules and dadh of water. Adjust salt and mix well. Cover, and let it cook on medium low heat till the flavours are infused properly. Remove cover, increase the flame, add lime juice, chopped coriander and cook till the majority of moisture is evaporated. Once done, remove from the heat and add diced paneer, boiled corn kernels and set it aside.
Making burritos – Roll a large medium thin chapati, cook on both side and bring it down to working platform/board. Spread little tomato ketchup, put a generous filling and roll it up.
Apply little butter on top, take it back to hot grik pan or griddle and cook till the slight crust is formed. Once done, cut it in half, serve hot with curd dip, tangy salsa and enjoy.
• You can use mayonnaise instead of curd and can add cheese in the filling.
• Also you can replace soya granules with cooked Samak rice or brown rice.
• Similarly you can replace the normal wheat flour chapati with the bread or tortilla of your choice.
