These are the Indian version of Mexican quesadillas with a healthy twist.
  • Tortillas (you can use the ones available outside or make it at home) – 2
  • For homemade healthy tortilla, you can either use normal whole wheat chappati in a bigger size or mix white flour and wheat flour in 50:50 proportion and make chappatis in a bigger size than normal.
  • Capsicum (chopped) – one small
  • Onion (chopped)– one small
  • Corns – 1 cup
  • Tomato (chopped) – 1 medium
  • Paneer cubes – 100 gm
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mayonnaise – 1-2 tsp
  • Cheese (grated) – according to your liking
  • Ketchup – 1 tsp (optional)
  • Pizza seasoning or any other seasonings of your choice (optional)
  • Oil to cook vegetables.
  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and sauté all the chopped vegetables.
  2. Once done, add salt, pepper, and mix properly.
  3. Now keep the vegetables mixture aside to cool. Preheat the griller by that time.
  4. Add paneer cubes and mayonnaise (or any sauce of your choice)
  5. Once the mixture cools down, spread it on one side of the tortilla.
  6. Now close it by folding over the empty side of the tortilla onto the other side.
  7. Now grill it in the griller (I normally use my sandwich griller for it). You can cook over a skillet too.
  8. Take it out once done and transfer it to a cutting board. Let it cool for a few seconds before cutting. Cut it into 3 or 4 pieces as your kids like it. Serve it with sauce of your choice.
You can make any kind of filling for this. I sometimes use minced chicken and beans too. You can try it of your kids like it.

You can replace paneer with tofu (after cooking it beforehand).

To make it a little spicy, you can spread a layer of hot sauce, chipotle sauce, or any kind of sauce on the tortilla before adding the filling.

Hope you like the recipe. Do try and let me know how you and your kids liked it.
