Veggie Quesadilla

Having lived in Texas for few years, I have always felt the cultural resemblances between India and Mexico. Tortillas are the Mexican form of Indian rotis, which is the main ingredient in this recipe. Quesadilla is a Mexican toasted cheesy savory sandwich. This is one of my kid's favs and with a variety of stuffing options, this is sought-after lunch as well.


Ingredients - Serves 4
  • Large wheat tortilla - 4 (or any tortilla or chapati)
  • Chopped onion - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped carrots & potatoes - 1/2 cup (Add any other veggis of your choice )
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
  • Grated cheddar cheese - 1/2 cup
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Heat the pan with 1 tbsp of oil, fry onions, carrots and potatoes
  • Add dry spices and saute well until the veggies are soft
  • Heat tawa and mildly toast one tortilla and keep it aside
  • Mildly toast another tortilla, spread the cooked veggies and cheese 
  • Place the other totilla over it and gently press and flip over to the other side 
  • Cut the Quesadilla with a regular knife or pizza cutter and serve with any dip
