How to Make Roasted Vegetable Quesadilla Recipe

Cooking Directions

STEP 01

In a preheated pan add 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil,4 stalks spring onions greens and bulbs chopped, 1 finely chopped zucchini,2 medium carrots chopped, 1 chopped red capsicum (or any colour).

STEP 02

Saute the vegetables for 1 to 2 minutes before adding 1 cup chopped red cabbage and salt to taste.

STEP 03

Stir well and cover the pan for 3 to 4 minutes till vegetables are cooked but still have a ‘bite’ (el dente).

STEP 04

Then add 1 tsp cumin powder and 1 tsp tabasco sauce and stir. The stuffing for the quesadillas are ready. Keep aside.

STEP 05

To make whole wheat quesadilla, take a wide mixing bowl and add 2 cups whole wheat flour,1 tsp salt and water. Combine the ingredients together adding a little water at a time. When the flour and water has come together knead to make firm, smooth non sticky dough.

STEP 06

Towards the end when the dough is almost ready add 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil and knead it into the flour.

STEP 07

When the dough is ready, divide it into large smooth lemon size balls with no cracks

STEP 08

To roll out the rotis dust the flat surface with flour, press the ball to make it disc shaped, dust it in flour and roll it out using a rolling pin to make a large roti. If it begins to stick dust it with flour on both sides and continue rolling it out. Ensure that the edges are not thick.

STEP 09

To fry the rotis, preheat a flat pan and place the roti in it. When white spots and bubbles start forming, flips the roti over. Dry cook on both the sides by flipping it over every few minutes till it gets a few golden spots and is cooked through. Do not let it brown too much.

STEP 10

At this stage, start assembling the quesadilla. Turn the heat to low, spoon the cooked vegetable mixture onto one half side of the roti, sprinkle cheese generously over the vegetables. Then fold the roti in half and press it down. Drizzle 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil over the quesadilla.Turn it over and drizzle oil on the other side as well. Press it down and cook it till it is golden brown and toasty on both sides.

STEP 11

Cut the quesadilla into triangles and seve.

Special Comments

STEP 01

Baby corn ,sweet corn, variety of zucchini colors, any colour capsicum, cabbage maybe used.

STEP 02

It is important to chop the vegetables fine inorder to stuff them into the tortilla ( roti).

STEP 03

If available ready made tortillas can be used.

STEP 04

The trick to making a good dough is to squeeze out the atta when kneading to know how much moisture is there in the dough, so that too much water is not added.

STEP 05

When cooking the roti for the quesadilla, it can be cooked as a phulka if using a gas stove.

STEP 06

Any type of cheese can be used as long as it melts.
