For the third day of cooking "Get it rolled", I had Burritos in mind. This happened when I was searching for the September BM where I had to search for Int/fusion dishes. Burritos was one on the list and very soon got removed when I decided to make the Get it rolled theme.
Reading on Burritos, I was surprised at how closely the Mexican cuisine resembles our most Indian dishes. I was introduced to Mexican cuisine when my colleague who visited us, cooked us Mexican meal. Many of the dishes, when I translated into a simple Indian dish.
So I realized I could very easily make a burrito for a meal and get everybody enjoy. I was supposed to make it for dinner, with the plans being changed, I ended up making it for breakfast today.
A burrito is a type of Mexican food. It consists of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose a filling. The flour tortilla is usually lightly grilled or steamed, to soften it and make it more pliable. On the other hand a Taco is simply the same, except the warps are not completely rolled with the stuffing.
Burritos become a wonderful picnic food and that reason I decided to send this to both Kid's Delight event
, hosted by Mir on Summer Special
this month and my Summer spl Mela.
