The Burrito Bowl sounds elaborate, but the fact is that it is not too time-consuming. Moreover, it is a satiating one-dish meal, which is completely worth the effort.

Here, rice is boosted with colourful veggies, ketchup and appropriate seasonings; layered with refried beans, sour cream and uncooked salsa; and finally garnished with cheese and other ingredients; before topping with crushed nacho chips, to make a totally irresistible one dish meal .

Refried beans is a staple accompaniment in Mexican cuisine and is readily available at stores, but making it fresh at home with tomatoes, spring onions and cooked rajma, gives an awesome flavour that beats any packaged option!

Assemble each serving of the Burrito Bowl separately so that everybody gets an equal share of the goodies, and enjoy it immediately upon preparation.

Hello, I tried the recipe today exactly as per measurements. But after layering and going to eat I felt rajma gravy is less, curd is sour coz of lemon. Somehow felt the dish was lacking something. What could have gone wrong. How to microwave it. Should hung curd be put later and cheese too after taking out from microwave

   This recipe makes use of sour cream, hence the use of lemon juice. Please ensure to use fresh hung curd or if you wish you can reduce the quantity of lemon juice. The best way is to heat up all ingredients as mentioned in the recipe and layer it. However if you wish to microwave do so for 1 minute. You can also add sour cream and cheese before heating in the microwave, but do not cook for more than 1 minute.
