For Raw Mango Chutney

  • Grind the Raw mango , jeera, green chilli ,salt and fresh coriander to a fine paste.
  • Heat oil in a pan . Add channa dal , Urad dal , curry leaves. Once it turns slightly golden brown add mustard seeds , asafoetida and red chilli powder . Mix well.
  • Add the mango paste and mix well for a minute or two. Turn off the heat.
  • Allow it to cool and store in an Airtight container. Always use a dry Spoon.I always make it in advance and store it.

For the Tacos

  • In a pan add a tsp of oil. Saute the chopped onions and capsicum on high heat for about 5 mins. Add harissa spice and salt and mix well . Turn off the heat after 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the contents to a bowl. In a the same pan add the chopped tofu puffs and roast for a minute or two until crisp.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Place the leftover roti on a plate. Spread 1/4 th Tsp of Raw mango chutney on one half the Roti. On top of that add the onion and capsicum mix and crisp tofu puffs.
  • Fold it.Place it on the hot gridle until both the sides are nice golden brown and crisp.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining rotis.
  • Just serve and enjoy as it is. You don't need any Sauce or chuntey to go with it.
  • Best enjoyed hot.


  1. You can use red and yellow peppers too. I did not have them so have not used it.
  2. In case you do not have Harissa spice you can add our very own Garam Masala (same quantity) or even a mix of Tandoori masala and subzi masala. 
  3. You can use fresh roti in case you do not have leftovers.
  4. You can add chilli sauce and cheese in case you do not have mango chutney . I would suugest you try with mango chutney before the season ends.
  5. You can even use pickle spice or leftover pickle masala.
  6. You can add paneer instead of tofu puffs too.
  7. Substitutes are endless.
