Awesome. It's spelled Fajita though. In Spanish, the J sounds become our H like Jalapeno is pronounced Halapeno etc. Keep up the good work Tarla ji!

Wow…a jain recipe with an international touch? This one I am surely going to try. The best part of this recipe is that all the ingredients are basic and no fancy things are used. And even the recipe of tortillas is so simple and convenient. Loved this recipe.
