I absolutely love these Bombay Burritos, however I struggled for the longest time to get my photos right.

Does somebody have a miracle formula to capture good photos in one shot… haha!

Bombay Burritos




I’ve abandoned so many recipes the last week just because my photos were a disaster. There’s no hope for me…Lol!

Well at least the recipe is here now so that tells you that I have been able to capture half decent photos. I promise they taste better than they look. 

What is Bombay Burritos?

It is Indian street food filled with amazing flavors. It is a roti or tortilla wrap filled with mashed potatoes, roasted cauliflower, roasted chickpeas, pickled onions, fresh spinach and a mint or coriander chutney.

You can add some chicken to it if you feel like a non-vegetarian version.

I apologise as I forgot to add the spinach when capturing my photos but I did add some fresh spinach to my wrap. We certainly can’t get enough of this delicious vegetarian meal. 

What ingredients do I need

Roti or Tortilla Wraps work well for this recipe. We prefer the Tortilla wraps, only because I can easily purchase some from the store.

However, I do have a recipe for both Roti and Tortilla on my blog, if you feel up to it. Mashed Potatoes, I used my Yellow Potato Recipe for the mashed potatoes, once it was cooked I mashed it up.

You also need some Roasted Cauliflower, Roasted Chickpeas and Pickled Onions.


How do I make the Burritos

Firstly you spread some mashed potato in the centre of the wrap. You then layer the cauliflower, chickpeas and spinach.

Add some pickled onions and a drizzle of Mint or Coriander Chutney. It is best served warm


Make Ahead

It seems like a lengthy process but it’s not to bad if you use store bought wraps. You could also make the mint chutney and pickled onions ahead of time.

If you’re making your own wraps you can also plan ahead and make them a day before.

I did everything the same day and it really wasn’t that bad. Besides these Bombay Burritos tastes so delicious that the little effort is so worth it.
