Hello friends,

Mexico is a country famous for its hot & wholesome food focus majorly on corn, beans, tomatoes & chilli peppers. The most common impression about Mexican food is that it is very spicy. One such famous dishes of that region is Tacos. Its a perfect evening snack, but can be enjoyed as a meal in itself. Tradionally it consists of shells made from maize flour & is topped with kidney beans.

The best thing that i like about tacos is, it is really light and  can be experimented with many kind of toppings. So basically its the topping, that is a key factor & can categorize it into snacks or as complete meal. Well today I made veg tacos using very simple & readily available ingredient. This version of Tacos is very much Indian & I tried to infuse Indian tangy taste to this tradional Mexican dish.
