Come September, India is abuzz with festive preparations and celebrations. With guests dropping in at all hours, shopping for the big day, getting your home ready, you often end up with lesser and lesser time to spend in the kitchen. This quick and easy recipe is inspired by the mood of the season. Richa Gupta of My Food Story, created it, specially for you.
Here’s what she’s got for you.
Let’s not let weather dictate what we eat right now because these Portobello mushroom fajita tacos are the perfect way to feel like it’s a party.
Taco night is a pretty regular affair here at the Dsouza’s and we are always experimenting. A lot of this and that went into these mushroom fajita tacos and I have to tell you, these can give any meaty tacosa run for their money.
And I know its festival time. Dussehra’s almost here and some of you are going to be vegetarian for the next couple of days. So, this is a double treat. Because you won’t miss the meat, and can still enjoy a night of tacos and wine. We said it’s a party, remember?
And I like to keep it light on a weekday. Which is why wine is the perfect pairing. I love pairing these with Big Banyan’s Chardonnay because it has a beautiful aroma of pineapple and pears. It’s crisp fruitiness and light sweetness makes it just right for these Portobello mushroom fajita tacos which are smoky, slightly spicy and still light and easy. I topped these with some goat’s cheese to balance out the flavors, and add a bit of creaminess.
I’m also thinking that these would be perfect for a Dussehra taco party. I can just see this is happening. Lay out all the ingredients:
And let your guests make their own tacos. It’s such a fun way to get the party going, and everyone loves taco night!
