Travel into the heartlands of Mexico with hearty and satiating Tacos, one of the most famous dishes of that region. A crispy taco shell, loaded with wholesome rajma topping and tangy uncooked salsa is a delight, which is enhanced further by peppy sauces, juicy lettuce and oh-so-yummy grated cheese!
It is a rustic experience, which warms the heart and fills the tummy with its sensual flavours and mealy textures. Serve the Tacos as soon as they are assembled.
Tacos are very filling, they can be enjoyed as a meal by itself, but if you wish create a Mexican meal with side dishes like Chilli Rellenos , Fresh Fruit Salad with Basil Dressing , Crusty Potato Fingers , Mexican Cheese Fajita and Mexican Fried Rice .

- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and mash it lightly using the back of a spoon for 2 to 3 minutes so that the flavours blend well. Keep aside.
