Mushroom quesadilla recipe -
(For 2 quesadilla wraps)
1 cup mushroom
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp garlic paste
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 cheese slice
1 tsp sooji
Method - Wash mushrooms and chop them. Saute onion, when it turns pink, add garlic and ginger, and saute till the raw small of ginger and garlic goes away. Then, add chopped mushrooms, salt, black pepper, oregano and chilli flakes and cook mushrooms (6-7 minutes). Add sooji and roast for 1-2 minutes.

Place the mushroom filling in one half of the wrap and place half cheese slice over it. Close the wrap, secure the ends by pressing it firmly, and grill or toast it. Repeat the same with the other tortilla. Make sure the quesadillas turn out be crusty. Cut each quesadilla into two parts, triangular in shape, and serve with Mexican salsa sauce and curd dip.
For curd dip - Add juice of half a lemon in 1 bowl of hung card. Add salt and black pepper, mix well and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
For salsa sauce - Blanch tomatoes, remove their peel. Crush the tomatoes, add lemon juice, salt, chilli flakes, minced garlic, vinegar, green chillies and lots of coriander leaves.
