Last week, we showed you our favorite comfort food. This week? Let’s talk about Mexican Bhel. This recipe is for all Mexican food lovers out there. It’s simple to make – just toss some veggies, and mix with flavorsome refried beans sauce – and requires just 30 minutes start to finish.

This is the perfect dish for those gloomy rainy days. Traditionally bhel is an Indian savoury chaat dish that is composed of rice puffs. We have used the most basic ingredients used in Mexican cuisines and combined them with some Indian spices.

Refried beans sauce is an integral part of the dish, and a dash of Ajwain seeds add a zing! Find the recipe below.

Tangy and crunchy Mexican Bhel

  • 8 flour Tortillas
  • 2 medium Onion finely chopped
  • 1 large Green Bell Pepper finely chopped
  • 2 small Tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 cups shredded Lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Oil for frying

  • For the Refried Beans Sauce
  • 1 TBSP Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Ajwain seeds
  • 1 Tsp Ginger
  • 2 cups tomato puree
  • 500 g Refried Beans
  • 1/2 Tsp Chilli powder
  • Salt to taste

    Tortillas
  1. Cut flour tortillas into 1'' squares and deep fry in oil till golden brown; keep aside.

    Refried Beans Sauce
  1. In a large pan, add oil and once its hot add ajwain seeds, let it simmer for a minute.
  2. Add 1 Tsp ginger paste and stir until mixed.
  3. Add the tomato puree and simmer on low heat for 5 mins.
  4. Once hot, add the refried beans and gently mix. Add chilli powder and salt to taste.
  5. Add a cup of water and more depending on the consistency you need to achieve.
  6. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce heat to a low, and simmer for five minutes.

    Assembling the dish
  1. Take fried tortillas in a serving plate and assemble them at the bottom.
  2. Add a thin layer of cheddar cheese on top.
  3. Layer a generous amount of the refried beans sauce. The heat from the bean sauce will make the cheese gooey.
  4. Next top it with tomatoes and continue layering with capsicum, lettuce and onions. See photo series as a guide.
  5. Top with another layer of tortillas chips and add cheese on top if you like
  6. Serve immediately

  • The wedding and all was so fun and went down extremely well. In the middle of the vortex, that is an Indian Wedding; I forgot
.

I forgot all about my words, my feelings, and the brilliance of music. But, this is a #lategram to all those unsaid, unexpressed moments, fully lived via the sheer pleasure of music. Link to my pre-wedding playlist in the bio^

  • I quite like the concept of Happy Socks
.
.
The brand was founded in Sweden and they sell socks; socks that make me quite happy because of their vibrancy and a general feel good factor
.
The interior of the stores reflect the same philosophy and are such a joy to be inside. So the next time you are feeling a little down in the dumps, pay a visit to your nearby Happy Socks store & lighten your pockets

  • It's been a while but there's a new post coming soon, right in time for the upcoming festive season! While that happens, I can't stop reminiscing about the good old days spent gazing at the horizon, listening to the sound of waves crashing and craving to run away from the beaming sun! Monaco, sometimes you are ardently missed!
