Pan-roasted potato tacos with mango salsa

Taco is a traditional Mexican dish of wheat or corn tortilla which is stuffed with different exciting fillings. Its a Mexican street food and the moment you eat it you get tons of flavours in your mouth.
Fillings can be anything from meat, chicken to lentils and vegetables.

Tortilla is like our Indian chapati but just smaller in size. You can use store bought white or yellow corm tortilla but I recommend making simple whole wheat tortillas at home.

 I love experimenting and making different tacos. For this recipe, I pan roasted some cubed potato in spices and then finished it with tangy Mango salsa and Yogurt-Mint sauce. The flavours worked out really well. 

This taco is hearty,satisfying, healthy and super delicious. Meals like these are my favourite as I don't have to do too much cooking. Its an easy and quick to make weekday meal especially when I am craving something flavourful yet healthy. I often make Roasted Vegetables tacos with hummus too for my dinner/lunch.

Science of building up a tacos is simple

Base ( Chicken/Fish/Meat/Lentils/Vegetables/Cottage cheese)
Sauce (Hummus/Green hummus/Guacamole/Sour cream/Yogurt based sauce)
Other garnishes- Coriander/Lemon/Avocado

These will pair well with Mango and chilli lemonade, Cucumber and mint cooler, Classic Lemon Iced Tea and Rose Masala Spritzer. You can also have salads like Beetroot and Orange salad, Fattoush salad along with these tacos for a more filling meal.

You can try my all time favourite classic hummus, Green goodness hummus, muhammara and honey-mustard yogurt aioli for more sauces for tacos.
