Tempt your taste buds with colourful and yummy Mexican Bell pepper Fajitas.


1 Red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
1 Yellow bell pepper, cut in thin strips
1 Green capsicum, cut in thin strips
1/2 Tomato, finely chopped/ cut in thin strips
1/2 Onion, finely chopped/ cut in thin strips
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste

For Corn Tortilla

1/2 cup Cornmeal (Makkai ka aata)
1/2 cup refined flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
Extra refined flour for dusting
Oil for shallow frying

For Topping

1/4 cup Salsa sauce (I used readymade)
1/4 cup Hung curd/sour cream


  • Saute onion in a tsp of oil for a min. Add red, yellow bell peppers and green capsicum and fry till soft (not soggy) for 5 min. 
  • Add salt and tomato and mix the stuffing well and keep aside.
  • In a bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix and knead with water like chapati dough (appox. ½ cup water) till it becomes soft. 
  • Divide dough into equal portions and roll out dough on a floured surface, in a thin small round shape. (Or make a big chapati and cut out small circles by using any lid) 
  • Prick by tortillas by fork and shallow fry. Flip them and flatten so that they do not rise and fry both sides.
  • Before serving put salsa sauce on the tortillas and then place the stuffing, add a dash of hung curd on top and serve fajitas.
