Fusion Quesadillas

Standard

Quesadilla (pronouced as “keh” “sa” “di” “yah”) is a traditional Mexican flatbread sandwich made of tortillas and usually a cheese and bean or cheese and vegetable or cheese and meat or a plain cheese filling. Popular in the US and in Mexico and some other parts of Central and South America..this dish a kid friendly snack. Make it with lots of cheese and you cannot go wrong.
To cater to a vegetarian palate at home and also to innovate with a slight Indian touch:-) I created what I call a Fusion Quesadilla this morning. This was our lunch for today, serve it with some fresh home made salsa or guacamole and you have a filling, fresh and tasty meal.

Fusion Quesadillas

You will need (this recipe makes 2 quesadillas i.e 8 servings):
4 Tortillas (You can use either store bought tortillas or thin home made rotis)
4 Medium Potatoes – Boil in a pressure cooker, peel and mash
4 Tsp Green Chutney
3 tbsp Grated cheese (I used Mexican cheese, you can alternatively use grated cheddar or grated Amul cheese )
Salt to taste
Crushed black pepper powder to taste
Butter for roasting

Method:
1. Boil the potatoes and mash as mentioned above.
2. To the boiled potatoes add salt, pepper powder and 1/2 tsp butter and mix well. You may also add chaat masala or chilli powder if you like your quesadilla spicy.
3. On one tortilla, spread 1 tsp green chutney and slowly spread the mashed potato mixture. (Green chutney side facing up)

6. Brush some butter on the top of the tortilla and place carefully in a quesadilla maker. If you dont have a quesadilla maker, you can cook on a pan or tava like how you would a normal roti. Make sure you press gently on top and ensure the tortilla sticks. The cheese that melts will help in this. Flip over gently and roast the other side too. Apply butter as needed.
7. Cut into 4 wedges and serve hot.
