Quesadilla

Serves: 2; Preparation Time: 20min

Quesadilla is a very popular Mexican dish made with vegetables in case of Vegan and a choice of any cheese preferably cheddar cheese. The vegetables are stuffed in either a flour / corn tortilla. It can be served with “Guacamole (avocado dip)” or “Tomato Salsa”.

My version of Quesadilla involves a homemade tortilla with wheat flour & all purpose flour.

Ingredients:

Tortilla:

  • Wheat flour – 1/2 cup
  • All purpose flour (Maida) – 1/2 cup
  • Salt as per requirement
  • Water 

Stuffing:

  • Vegetables grated and fried (cabbage, carrot) – 1/2 cup
  • Spring onion & Capsicum chopped and fried – 1/2 cup
  • Cilantro & lettuce – 1/2 cup
  • Pepper powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Cheddar cheese grated – 1 cup
  • Salt as per taste.

Procedure:

  • Take a bowl and add the above mentioned Tortilla ingredients except water. Mix well 
  • Add water as per requirement and prepare a dough out of it. Knead the dough well.
  • Divide the dough and make proportionate balls. Flatten it using a rolling pin.
  • Make two tortillas for 1 quesadilla.
  • Heat a pan on a medium flame.
  • Put the flattened tortillas and toast well on both the sides.
  • Take one tortilla. Add chopped, grated, fried veggies (cabbage, carrot, spring onion & capsicum) mentioned above. 
  • Add Cilantro, lettuce, pepper powder, salt 
  • Add 1 full cup of grated cheddar cheese. Cover it with one more tortilla on top.
  • Toast the prepared quesadilla on a medium/ low flame for about 3 -5 min. Toast it on both the sides. Little olive oil could be added for tortillas if required.
  • The cheese now binds both the tortillas together.
  • Take the quesadilla onto a serving plate and cut the into 4 halves.
  • Serve hot with Guacamole (avocado dip)” or “Tomato Salsa”.
