Veg Chimichanga

Being Vegetarians,we usually order for Veg Food like Bean Chalupa,Bean Burrito and triple layer Nachos at Mexican Restaurant.
For a change, I ordered  "Veg Chimichanga". Its a cross between a Veg Puff and Veg Roll.


2 Flour tortilla - 12 inches atleast (can use store bought)
1 onion - sliced
1 bell pepper/capsicum - sliced
1 tomato - cubed
Any other vegetables you like
taco seasoning/ masala(powder)
salt as per taste
flour - 1 cups
warm water -  1/3 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
oil for frying
Cheese(Mozzarella) - 2 tbsp


1 Make a soft dough using flour, 1 tsp oil, salt ,baking powder and warm water.
2 Roll out 2 tortillas (12 inches diameter) .
3 Heat a tava and cook the tortilla ( with only a few brown spots/ do not cook as much as a chapati).

1 Grill all the vegetables for about 2-3 minutes on a hot tava.
2 Add salt and seasoning/masala.

- Put 3-4 spoonfulls of the filling on a tortilla and fold it like an envelope(fold four sides).
- With the folded side down fry the roll in about 1 inch of oil.(you could also smear some oil and bake it in an oven for 10-15 minutes at 400 F).
- Granish(while hot) it with 1 tbsp of shreaded cheese( microwave it for aout 30 seconds if you need to melt the cheese).
