Fried burrito with blueberries

Everybody loves dessert, everybody loves fried food.. So what's wrong in frying desserts! I have always loved the idea of fried desert and this recipe is one of them and the best part is there is no waiting. I was so excited when I saw this. This again is another semi-homemade dish. It takes minutes to whip up this dish and its elegant and restaurant style. This will impress I promise. This is a decadent, indulging yet light desert, and you wouldn't want to share it with anybody. I know I did not.

I am a dessert person,when I was in my parents house I used to bake cake literally everyday,but after getting married to the person "who doesn't approve anything that has sugar in it", my dessert sweet life turned empty. But guess what, I make my own trips to the store buy some yummy desserts and stuff the fridge with them and once he leaves the house, its Dessert Time for me and the fun part is he din't have a clue that I was doing this, until one day I told him.
I am using sour cream and organic granola. If you use granola bars, smash it in to little bites and add it.

Fried burrito with blueberries Serves 5

Tortilla large size – 5 
Sour cream – ¼ cup
Sugar – 5 tbsp
Blueberry fresh or frozen(thawed) – ¼ cup
Granola - ¼ cup          
Oil for deep frying
Bamboo skewers – 5 ( soak in water for 30 mins)
Ready whipped cream (or )use the recipe below to make your own whipping cream

For whipped cream:
Heavy whipping cream – ½ cup
Confectionery sugar – 2-3 tbsp
Hand Whisk / Electrical whisk

Whipping cream method:
Place the bowl and hand whisk in the freezer for 30 minutes before the actual whipping.
Once the bowl and hand whisk is cold, pour the whipping cream in and start beating it. If using electric whisk,plug in and start whisking for a minute once it starts to thicken, add sugar 1 tbsp at a time and keep whisking until it forms stiff peaks.
When you lift the whisk up from the mixture, the cream should hold its point position,(i.e.) it should not be fall back, it should hold peaks.This will take about 2-4 minutes.
Cover with cling film and keep in fridge until use.

Points to note while whipping:
All the three items the whipping cream,the bowl and whisk( if using hand whisk) should be cold.It helps in whipping.
You have to stop whipping at the right time, if you over whisk,it will turn to butter and will be off no use.

Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 20-30 minutes(This will prevent the skewer from getting burned when frying in the oil).
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
Mix the sour cream and sugar together.
Remove the skewer from water.

Assembling and cooking
Spread a table spoon of the sour cream and sugar mixture on the tortilla in the center.
Sprinkle some granola over it and top with some blueberry.
fold the tortilla like you would fold a burrito.
Prick the folded burrito with the soaked skewer (This helps the burrito holds its shape while deep frying).
Repeat the same with the remaining tortilla's.
Put the folded side down in the oil,with the skewer in place and deep fry for approximately 2 minutes on each side or until golden.Once you turn the burrito and it holds its position you can remove the skewer.
Remove the skewer.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Serve with whipped cream.

You can use chocolate chips also in the filling.
