Tacofusion- Tacos in desi style


We all know Taco is a Mexican dish, consisting of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A Taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including vegetables, and cheese, allowing great versatility and variety. Tacos are generally eaten without utensils, often garnished with salsa, chili pepper, avocado, guacamole, cilantro (coriander), tomatoes, onions, and lettuce.

Today I will share with you a total makeover of Tacos. Basically I would say  Tacos prepared in total desi style and with full desi touch.

Now you all must be wondering what is desi style and desi touch in Tacos.

From schooldays I use to eat masala puri made by mom. This masala puri is made up of wheat flour,chickpea flour and basic masalas,fried in oil. So to avoid oil I thought of baking it.While baking them an idea came in my mind, why not to give it a shape of tacos.Thats how masala puri turned into Tacos.

Chaats are my favourite,so as a filling I prepared a chana chaat covered with curd & chutneys. So instead of using cheese & veggies, I used  chaat as filling and let me tell you this experiment turned out very well. It tasted heavenly.
