BM #97 Week 1 Day 2 -

I felt this is the best form of fusion food from two of my favorite cuisines (Indian and Mexican). Burrito bowl is very popular with the kids. I usually make it with rice. But today, I assembled it for the adults with millets which made for a very filling meal.

This is a very easy to fix meal if all the ingredients are made ahead. I had cooked millets, guacamole and seasoned beans ready. I steamed the corn, chopped the lettuce and assembled it in under 5 minutes.

Ingredients - 

Millet 1/4 cup (I used Proso Millet but any millet is fine)
Beans, seasoned 3-4 Tbsp (I used Pinto, But Kidney beans is fine too)
Corn steamed and seasoned 1/4 cup
Lettuce, washed and finely chopped
Sour Cream/Yogurt 2 Tbsp
Guacamole 1-2 Tbsp
Tomato, chopped
Shredded Cheese 1 Tbsp
Tortilla Chips as needed
Taco Sauce as needed
Cilantro finely chopped as needed for garnish

Note - Stir fried sweet peppers is a great addition too.

Method Of Preparation -

Cook the pre soaked millets and fluff them with a fork. Set aside while the remaining ingredients are assembled.

The Kidney Beans or in this case, Pinto Beans are boiled with salt and Chana/Rajma Masala.

Steam the Corn and season it with any spices preferred. I add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, lime juice and paprika.

In a wide bowl, add the cooked millets, arrange the guacamole, seasoned corn, seasoned pinto beans, yogurt/sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped tomato and chopped lettuce.

Drizzle taco sauce as needed. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.


Preparation Time 15-20 minutes
