Have a fiesta with these mouth watering, easy and healthier, Indian fusion recipes made with local ingredients.
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as the day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, music and traditions.
Mexican food is very popular here and even more so among us Indian Americans. It is a match made in heaven for the Indian palate with its use of spices, chili peppers, cilantro, onions and tomatoes. Don’t you think that the Pico de gallo is just like the Indian koshimbir or kachumber ?
Little surprise then that over the years my Mexican cooking has morphed into an Indo Mexican cuisine which my family loves. So I tried various fusion ideas blending Indian and Mexican cookery and they have been popular with our friends and family. In true Indfused style, they are healthier and easy to make and use local ingredients.
The Broiled Stuffed Indo Mexican Jalapenos that originated as a leftover makeover in our home, is now a sought after appetizer.
My favorite dish to order at a Mexican restaurant is the chili rellenos but often it comes dripping in oil. So I started making these Chili relleno bocados that have satisfied my craving. They are so easy to make too!
And who does not love avocados? In our home, it has become a necessity 🙂 This Avocado Relish is a big hit at parties. I substitute grapes for the cranberries in the summer time.
I am always so happy to hear from Indfused’s followers and friends how so many of these Indfused recipes have become a staple in their homes. The Avocado relish, Indo Mexican Chunky Sweet Potato Soup and the Chicken Vindaloo Tacos are the most popular staples.
It is finally warm here and I cannot wait to grill and have our meals on the patio and sink my teeth into the Chipotle Elote and Samosadillas served with our favorite Salad –
Here is a link to the Super Scrumptious Salad.
I hope you get a chance to try these Indo Mexican fusion recipes this Cinco de Mayo!
Have a fabulous celebration!
