Chana Chur Garam Nachos

There are quite a few similarities between Mexican and Indian cuisines - from common cooking tools, ingredients to cooking methods.
The tastes may differ but there are many things common to both the cuisines like fresh and dried chillies, tamarind and spices, fruits and vegetables that are extensively used.  Mexican rice dishes are very similar to the Indian pulaos.  So one can say that there are not much changes to be made to get Indo Mexican dishes. At the most their corn tortillas may be replaced by Indian rotis and the rice dish may have some Indian garam masala added.
