My family loves Mexican & Indian cuisines. Inspired by both cuisines , I created a fusion of Mexican taco & quesadilla with a twist of Indian flavors.

This fusion recipe consists of flavorsome Indian spiced minced chicken masala, sweet tangy yogurt salsa topping and crispy prata wrap in two Mexican styles. One bite of this delectable, refreshing wrap will keep you craving for more!
