T ~ Taco Shells with Spicy Indian Style Filling

Event: Blogging Marathon#32
Theme: International / Fusion Dishes

Typically a taco is a Mexican dish in which a corn / wheat tortilla is rolled around a filling and eaten without any utensils. In USA and Canada the fried, hard corn tortilla shells are popular as well. I love to use these shells for this fusion recipe with bold Indian flavors. This is what I prefer to have for my lunch when I end up having left over chana masala. A scrumptious, filling and chaat kind lunch. This recipe is a child's play when you have all the ingredients ready.


Ingredients:
Taco shells
Chole (Recipe is here.) or peas masala
Boiled and cubed potatoes
Finely minced red onion
Yogurt (that is not sour.) 
Thin sev (Recipe is here.)
Finely minced cilantro to garnish
Sweet chutney (Recipe is here.)
Green chutney

Method:
Actually the pictures are self explanatory and one can assemble these tacos in what ever way they wish, adding or deleting the garnishes according to preference.
Toast the tacos according to directions. I toasted them for few seconds in a microwave.
Fill the tacos with the following ingredients in that order - chole masala, potatoes, onions, sev, chutneys and yogurt. Top it off with cilantro and sev garnish.
