Keema Burrito

Hari says

Mexican food is so wonderful and I love the fresh spicy mole sauces. Burritos are a great snack or lunch dish and are perfect for the whole family. I have put a little spin on this so you can use the ingredients you have at home to cook up a Tex-Mex storm in your kitchen.

With this recipe, I have used Indian flavours to make a classic Mexican burrito. The spiced minced lamb or keema filling includes beans, and this is complemented with a fresh zingy tomato salad to add crunch and freshness. Burritos are usually made with a warm wheat tortilla breads but using roti flour to make them is a great alternative, resulting in very similar breads. You can also mix and match lots of other ingredients such as cheese, avocado, chilli sauce and salad to make the burrito your own way.

Roti torilla

  1. In a bowl or stand mixer, mix flour, salt and oil together. Knead to a soft dough.
  2. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
  3. When you are ready to cook, heat your tava or frying pan to a medium heat.
  4. Roll out the roti and place on the pan to cook. Once it changes colour a little, turn and cook the other side. Place in a tea towel to keep warm.

Keema filling

  1. Heat oil in a pan and on a medium heat, start to fry the finely chopped onions.
  2. After 5 minutes, add the minced ginger and garlic until everything is golden brown.
  3. Add the mince meat, chopped chillies, spices and salt, and stir fry until the meat has browned.
  4. Squeeze in the tomato puree and a splash of water with the beans. Leave the mixture to cook thoroughly, stirring occasionally until all the liquid has evaporated. This will take about 10 minutes.
  5. The filling must be nice and dry. Leave to cool a little then add the chopped coriander leaves.
