Bean Taco


Today's Morning was a lazy 1. My DD was not well, day before yes'day, so thought of making something light, which is also good for her too. I thought if she wants to have something light, she can have bread, or if she wants she can also have plain rice with some salt and yogurt. I thought of making Rajma- Roti/ Tortilla for our dinner. I soaked the Beans in the morning, was thinking of boiling them. At that time, my DD return home from School and whoosh, she saw Beans soaked and her song started, " Mamma, I want Bean Taco, Mamma, I want Bean Taco,.........." I can't even explain you guys, how many times she repeated this particular sentence in 5 minutes. I seriously wonder, how our little ones learn to convince their moms. For my DD, it just takes 5 minutes. So, here you go ' A Delicious recipe of Bean Taco', my little ones favorite.
