Baked Veg Taquitos with an Indian Twist.

Taquitos/Flautas are veg/meat stuffed tortillas which are rolled into the shape of a cigar and baked until they are crisp. They are served with avocado sauce or sour cream. Usually they are chicken or meat filled, but here I am sharing an Indian vegetable twist combined with Mexican flavours.
