SOUR CREAMINGREDIENTS: Thick cream(malai)-1 cup Curds-1/4 cup Lemonjuice 1 tsp METHOD: Mix all the three and chill for 24 hours till thick in a freezer.  If lime juice is not available handy then keep the cream and yoghurt mixture on the counter top overnight,then next day freeze it for 1 full day. Stays fresh for a week in freezer and it can be used for recipes. This is the dish we use for burrito bowl.

FAJITA SAUTEED VEGETABLES: Green Capsicum-1 no Onion-1 no Oregano-1/4 tsp Slice the green capsicum and onions lengthwise.
