Here is a fantastic, colourful and fun-filled snack, which the whole family will enjoy. You will especially be happy to see your kids grow with this protein-rich delight. Whole-wheat taco shells made with maize and wheat flours flavoured mildly with carom seeds, are stuffed with a protein-rich combo of rajma and paneer perked up with onions, cumin seeds powder, etc.

A lacing of fresh, uncooked salsa makes the Rajma and Cottage Cheese Tacos all the more exciting. Serve these tacos immediately on arranging, before the taco shells get soggy with the salsa.
