Disclaimer: I am preparing this dish as per my kiddo’s preference. Please vary the veggies and cheese accordingly.

Burrito is one perfect meal to hide beans and legumes, especially red kidney beans or pinto beans. In this burrito, I am using red kidney beans. Easy to make and pack. If you are planning to make rajma, set aside some beans for this burrito. All you need is some rice, bean and cheese of your choice.

I am not using sour cream and salsa in this burrito as it makes the burrito soggy for lunch. Also you can add veggies of you choice.
