Fajitas

Being vegetarian always has it's pros & cons. It is very hard to go to a restaurant & ask them to make you a custom made food. I feel so bad or say they are feeling sorry for us for not able to enjoy the food as it is. Anyway there are these beautiful restaurants that just make them customized & serve us making our experiences memorable. It's really a nice feeling that we are able to enjoy different flavors that are out there. 
Mexican is one of my favorite foods I like to have it every now & then. The flavors are kind of similar to Indian & make me want them more. I'm sharing a recipe for paneer fajita here, which will sure make you crave for more.


Yields : 4 Rolls  
Ingredients 
4 Tortillas 
2 Cups paneer chopped
3 Capsicum (Any color) sliced
8 Pieces of sun-dried tomatoes chopped in lengthwise
2 Medium onions sliced
1 Cup guacamole 
2 Tbs oil 
Marinade
2 Tbs. sesame oil
1 Tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbs. lemon juice 
1 Tbs. garam masala
2 Tbs. cilantro leaves
2 Tsp. red chili powder 
Salt for taste 



For Marinade
In a bowl as shown below mix all the marinade ingredients together. Adjust the taste if needed. To that add paneer and allow it sit for at-least 30mins.




Heat a pan with oil. To that add onions, capsicum & tomatoes. Sauté them for few minutes & switch off heat. Veggies will be crunchy & gives a nice bite.
In them same pan add the marinade paneer & sauté it for few minutes & off the heat.
Warm the tortilla and arrange the fajita, as you like.


As shown above I layered guacamole to that added the veggies & marinade paneer to the tortilla. Just roll it & enjoy it.

Note: 
1. Replace paneer with your choice of meat or tofu. 
2. You can also add a little salsa to wrap.
