This is my entry to Recipes for the Rest of Us-Dinner being hosted by lovely Siri @ Siri’s Corner. This event is started by Ramki @ One Page cookbook and the rules say that the recipe should be easy enough for a 10 year old to make.
I’m sure almost all 10 year olds like potato (I sure did and my DH says he could eat potato everyday even now, so I can imagine how he was when he was 10 J) and they would want these for themselves.
Coming to the recipe, its nothing but spicy aloo bhaji tucked in a tortilla (roti) with lots of cheese.
Ingredients:Potatoes – 1 medium, cubed
Onions – ½ small, choppedRed chili powder – a little bit or a lot (depending on how spicy you like)
Garam masala – to your tasteSalt- to your taste
Cheese – you 2 handfulsTortillas – 2 (I used sundried tomato-basil flavored, but any flavored tortilla would work. Chapati/ Roti would be great too)
- First make aloo cury: Heat few drops of oil in a pan, add onions and potatoes; sauté till onions are tender, will take around 5 minutes.
- Add a small glass of water, cover and cook on medium-low flame till potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add chili powder, garam masala and salt; mix well and keep aside.
- To make the quesadillas: Heat a griddle or tawa on medium heat; spray with non-stick cooking spray; add the tortilla and let it brown a little bit on one side; then flip. Add palmful cheese on half the tortilla, and then add half potato curry then another palmful cheese. Fold tortilla in half and press lightly with a spatula, so the cheese melts and sticks. Flip and cook on the other side till brown spots appear. Remove and let cool** for at least 5 minutes and then cut into wedges.
