Potato tacos! Well, tacos are very popular Mexican food. Many people around the world simply like this food because it has a lot of varieties and anybody can make this according to his/her own taste. So that way you can call it as a smart international food, haha. If you do not like lamb then you can have many options in chicken, but if you do not like chicken then can try pork also, okay if you prefer beef then there are also hundreds of options in tacos. Hmmm, are you vegetarian? Nothing to worry, still you will have many options to pick as per your choice, haha.
Though I am a non-vegetarian but still, I prefer to cook mostly vegetarian foods at home what I have tried in various places, cities & states and of-course do a lot of experiments to satisfy my own taste & preference. Though tacos I have not tried so many times in restaurants but I liked it and often try to make this at home.
You actually need tortillas to enjoy delicious tacos at home, you can buy this from a departmental store or buy online. But those are little expensive in India, so if you buy tortillas everytime from a store then it won’t be a smart deal, so it would be a good idea if you learn to make tortillas at home. It is made of wheat flour or corn flour, unlike Indian roti, here oil and warm water are added to flour to make a dough for this purpose. Normally it is cooked over a pan with or without oil. I prefer soft tortillas for making tacos but sometimes I even prefer crispy or hard one too.
This potato tacos recipe is one of the simple tacos recipes. Here soft tortillas are used and deep fried potatoes as tacos filling with a lot of tomato salsa (made with extra schezwan sauce). You can also add coriander (cilantro) mint sauce here if you like but I prefer to have this without coriander-mint sauce (chutney). But if you do not want to add that sauce inside tacos, in such case you can serve it separately to your guest. So whoever will prefer that green sauce with this, they can try it.
