These are "fusion" tacos because they merge elements of Mexican and Indian cooking. Mexican and Indian cuisine have some major similarities when it comes to key ingredients and spices. Vibrant flavors like cumin, lime, chili, mango, garlic, tomato, and beans feature prominently in both. These ingredients and more come together to create these awesome fusion wraps, and perhaps you'll agree that Mexican and Indian flavors are a match made in heaven!

How to Prepare Indian Fusion Green Tacos [Vegan]

To Make the Lentil "Meat":
  1. Grab a pot. Heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions in the oil until translucent.
  2. Add grated carrot, chopped tomato, and spices, and sauté a minute. I like a lot of spices, but the measurements above are more modest.
  3. Add tomato paste and lentils and coconut milk and lemon and mix well. Simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Taste, adjust seasonings and salt to your taste.
To Make the Sour Cream:
  1. Puree in a food processor or mix all ingredients by hand until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  1. Fill the center of each collard leaf with a bit of the lentil meat, sour cream, mango chutney and hot sauce. Fold or wrap and eat like a soft taco.
