With or without rajma, with one stuffing or the other, burritos are always a great option for a weekend snack as much as for a party – it is quite a meal in itself.
You can have a free hand with the stuffing and experiment with choices of your own – just ensure that they are healthy! You must always stuff the burritos as and when required to avoid sogginess; or to add an element of fun and freedom, you can let your guests stuff their own burritos! Cabbage and onions add crunch, while the mozzarella cheese enhances the flavour – every ingredient plays its part in making this a grand success.
Usually burritos are not cooked, but you can cook it lightly in the microwave to just melt the cheese a wee bit. And of course, don’t forget to serve with chilled tomato salsa!
- Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and mash lightly with the back of a spoon. Keep refrigerated to allow the flavours to blend.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the onions, garlic and capsicum and sauté on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes till the onions turn translucent, while stirring continuously.
- Add the green chillies, tomatoes, mixed vegetables, paneer, salt and pepper, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for another 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and keep aside.
- Place a tortilla on flat, dry surface and place a portion of the stuffing on one end of the tortilla.
- Spread 2 tbsp of the tomato salsa evenly over the stuffing and top with 1 tbsp of cabbage, 1 tbsp of spring onion greens and 1 tsp of cheese.
- Roll up the tortilla tightly, starting from the end where the stuffing is placed.
- Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 7 more burritos.
- Serve immediately with tomato salsa.
