A few days back I was at the dollar shop near my house and saw this box of Tacos which I had never ever tasted or cooked. I and my son are always fascinated with food that has cheese in it and when I saw the picture and the recipe on the box I knew that I should try this dish out although I would have to make the beans in an Indian style. The ingredients mentioned on the box are not easily available in India so I made the indianized version of the beans, keeping the rest of the ingredients intact. I am glad that I tried this out which came out to be really really YUMLICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
So after tasting the final product I knew that food and cultures can mix and form an entirely new and delicious cuisine which one can actually enjoy and relish.
So here is my Indian RAJMA TACOS recipe.
250gms Rajma beans soaked overnight
2 medium onions finely chopped
2 tomatoes finely chopped
1 tsp each ginger and garlic paste
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp chilli powder
½ tsp haldi powder
½ tsp sugar
salsa made of chopped tomatoes, onions and coriander.
Salt to taste and coriander to garnish
Cheese for spreading on top.
Take a pressure cooker pan and heat oil
Add the finely chopped onions and stir till they become soft
Add the ginger garlic paste
Add the tomatoes and stir till the tomatoes are cooked and leave oil
Add soaked and washed rajma and all the masala’s.
Cook in the pressure cooker for 10 minutes.
Garnish with coriander after adjusting the seasonings.
Let it become a little dry
Take the taco shells and keep in the microwave for 1 minuteArrange the beans a mixture of tomatoes and onionsThen top with cheese.
