A Snacky Tasty Spinach Mushroom Quesadilla

A great little vegetarian snack, a quesadilla is basically a mexican-style stuffed pancake, like a toasted sandwich, made with two tortillas sandwiched together with cheese and vegetarian filling.


  • 6 tortillas home made or store bought
To make tortillas
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp vegetable shorting/dalda
  • a pinch of salt
Mix all the above ingredients with enough water to form a smooth and form dough,like roti dough .Let it sit for 30 min. Divide into large lemon size ball and with a sprinkle of flour , roll them with a rolling pin to approximately six-inch diameter.

Heat a frying pan(tawa), place tortilla on it and cook on moderate heat for few minutes till it get light golden spots on each side. Prepare all the tortillas and keep aside.

For Filling
  •     1/2 cup sliced onions
  •     1 cup sliced bell pepper (any color)
  •     1 cup chopped spinach
  •     1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  •     1/2 cup baby tomatos
  •     1/4 tsp pepper
  •     1/4 tsp roasted cummin powder
  •     1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  •     2 tbsp olive oil
  •     1 tbsp grated cheddar cheese per casadia
  •     salt to taste

Heat oil in pan and add onions and fry for 2 min ,then add bell pepper and mushrooms and sautee for 3 min,add spinach ,baby tomato and sautee for 2 min then add salt and pepper,roasted cummin powder and keep the filling aside

Take one tortilla ,sprinkle the good amount filling on top of it ,sprinkle some cheese,chilli flakes and place another tortilla on top of it and press it softly and place it on hot tawa (fry pan) and let it cook each side one min.

I used a quesadilla maker but a tawa would do the same if you press it evenly all over the tortilla.

Remove ,cut them into wedges and serve hot with guacamole dip, tomato salsa or your favorite ketchup

Guacamole dip

  •  2 ripe avocados
  •  4 spring onions chopped
  •  1 small tomato chopped
  •  1 tbsp chopped jalapenos
  •  1 tbsp lemon juice
  •  3 tbsp of chopped cilantro (coriander)
  •  1/4 tsp crushed black pepper
  •  salt to taste

Scoop out the avocado and put all the ingredients in a bowl

Use a fork and mash it .
