How to Make Tortilla
Divide the dough into 8 equal sizes.
Now take one part and roll it.
Heat a flat pan and cook the base from both the sides. (use flat tawa to cook, but if you don’t have you can use normal Tawa also).
Follow the same process to make the rest of the tortilla.
How to Assemble
Place the tortillas on a plate and spread the rice mixture on the lower part of the roti.
Now add some chilli paneer on the same spot then some sour cream and some salsa.
Now add some grated cheese on to it.
Sprinkle some Oregano Seasoning on to it.
It's time to roll our burritos.
To roll the burrito, first, fold the two sides inwards covering the filling.
Then start rolling from the bottom towards the top, tightly pressing the fillings inward so that the wrap completely encloses the filling from all sides.
Continue with remaining burritos.
Now heat a grill pan or normal tawa.
Keep one burrito wrap on to it.
Rub little butter on all sides of the burrito.
Cook from both sides until the burrito is golden brown.
Cut the burritos in half and serve.
You can serve these burritos roll along with mayonnaise, sauce, or sour cream and nachos.
I have used mozzarella cheese here. But you can use any other cheese of your choice
