Veggie Masala Burrito

Veggie Masala Burrito

Burrito is a famous, well-known Mexican food delicacy.  It is delicious, convenient and easy to make. It is typically made with either refried beans or black beans and Mexican style cheese. However, we all need a break from monotony. So the recipe that I am offering you, adds a twist to the usual burrito. No beans or cheese. Just a wonderful blend of vegetables, herbs and spices on a wheat or flour tortilla, roti or chapati. It is delicious, healthy, colorful, aromatic and easy to make. If you are Vegan, skip the sour cream.
