detox weekend and on how to make the chipotle burrito bowl

this sunday, since ananya { my super smart producer bestie} was staying over, we decided to make use of the beautiful location i am so grateful to be living in {worli, duh} and go for a jog (me) / walk (her) on worli sea face.

we jogged/ walked for an hour and then got hungry so stopped at subway on the way home to grab a bite. i couldn’t resist the double chocolate chip cookie and ordered the cookie with my sub too. not the best idea considering the whole point of the jog was to stay fit but honestly sometimes i have NO willpower whatsoever. {make that most of the time}

later jinal and saloni came home and we made {or atleast tried to make} the chipotle burrito bowl and it was SO good. we finished everything and it made me realise how little my ‘stay fit resolution’ even means to me.

here’s the recipe in the event you want to try it at home too.

Sour Cream

mix half a cup of hung curd and half a cup of fresh cream in a bowl. add a pinch or salt, one to two cloves of finely chopped garlic, and a dash of white vinegar. mix ingredients well and the sour cream is done.

Guacamole

You will need one ripe avocado {only select stores in mumbai sell these. try natures basket or food hall at palladium} smash it till its like a paste and add lemon juice, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, chopped coriander, a tablespoon of fresh cream and salt to taste.

Corn

boil some american corn. once ready add lemon juice, chopped coriander and salt to taste.

Salad

Sautee some capsicum and onion in olive oil and add a pinch of salt.

Beans

Once you have boiled and cooked the kidney beans (rajma) and some salt and any hot sauce of your choice {we used cholula and shriracha, check picture} and some taco seasoning {if you have some, we got ours from palladium}

Lemon Coriander Rice

Try using less water to cook the rice so that it isn’t too lumpy. Once cooked put it in a dish to separate and add lemon, chopped coriander and salt to taste.

Cheese 

grated cheese of your choice. we used the mexcian blended pre- grated cheese. which we bought from food hall.

Pico De Gallo Salsa

can be made at home or purchased at any store near you. here’s the recipe i use. pinterest is my true love.

 

Take a big bowl and add the above ingredients in the proportion you prefer and add lots of hot sauce {we used shriracha} and voila your burrito bowl is ready.
