A snack from the vibrant cuisine of Mexico, Moyettes are basically like open sandwiches made with burger buns. The centres of the buns are scooped out and the cup-shaped buns are then baked and filled with a yummy rajma filling.
Laced with succulent tomato salsa, the Moyettes are a riot of flavours and textures, an experience that is sure to excite your taste buds.
Make sure you serve the Moyettes immediately after preparation. You can vary the amount of cheese as per your taste – if your serving this to kids, you can perhaps be generous with the cheese!
