Curried Crab Whole Wheat Tacos with Mango Salsa!

As Mexican food flavor profiles and Indian food flavor profiles go hand to hand, I thought of making some Mexican food with an Indian twist.

Regular Crab meat flour or corn tortilla tacos are world-famous.

So made these Tacos with homemade whole wheat flour Rotis/ Tortillas with curry crab, mango salsa, and yogurt sauce instead of pure sour cream.

Homemade food is always the best.

First, make the Rotis

Here I'm not showing or giving the exact recipe of Rotis.

Take whole wheat flour and add a pinch of salt and water (add little by little ).

Knead the dough and divide it into small dough balls.

Roll out the small dough balls to make Rotis with a little bit of loose whole wheat flour.

Shallow Fry rotis on a flat frying pan with a little bit of butter or oil.

Then put the roti in a taco mold (You can easily buy the taco mold from amazon) and toast it in the bread toaster on medium heat for 2 mins.

Then the roti will shape like a Taco shell-like this.👇

Keep them aside.

Second, make the Yogurt sauce::


1/4 cup Yogurt

1 tablespoon sour cream

Salt and crushed black pepper according to taste


Mix everything together and keep it aside.

Third, make the Mango Salsa::


1/2 cup chopped firm mango (take the firm mango, riped but not soft)

1/4 cup chopped Onion

1/2 cup chopped Tomato

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 chopped jalapeno (seeded )

Juice of a Lime Juice

Salt and crushed black pepper according to taste


Mix everything together and keep it aside.

1 teaspoon Ginger paste

1 teaspoon Garlic paste

1 teaspoon Cumin Powder
