Taquitos/Flautas are veg/meat stuffed tortillas rolled into 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 flavors.

- Assembling of Tortilla
- Take one tortilla .
- Brush one side with little oil.
- Now turn it over and place sufficient filling in the tortilla .
- Roll it in the shape of a cigar .Roll it tight otherwise it won't look good and filling will come out.
- Roll all the taquitos like this and place in a baking tray seam side down.
- If you are using cheese just place them a little on both the ends of the taquitos ,these will give a more cheesy look,without even using tons of it .
- Bake them in the oven .
- After 7-8 minutes you will that they will start browing from sides then flip them over . You will that they are looking baked/brown .
- Baked them for another 1-2 minute till another side is little crispy brown.
- Remove them from oven .
- Serve them with dip of your choice or fruit salsa.
