Rajgira Quesadilla, also known as Farali Quesadilla, is a dish that combines traditional Mexican quesadilla with Indian ingredients that are typically used during fasting periods such as Navratri or Ekadashi. Here is a recipe for Farali Quesadilla:
- 1 cup Rajgira flour
- 1/4 cup boiled and mashed potatoes
- 1/4 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp sendha namak (rock salt)
- 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
- 1/4 cup grated cheese
- Ghee or oil for cooking
- In a mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour, mashed potatoes, cumin powder, sendha namak, and black pepper powder. Mix well to form a dough.
- Divide the dough into 8-10 equal-sized balls.
- Roll out each ball into a circle, about 1/4 inch thick.
- Place a circle of dough on a hot griddle or tawa, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- Spread grated cheese on one half of the paratha, and fold it in half to make a quesadilla.
- Cook the quesadilla on both sides until the cheese is melted.
- Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
- Serve the quesadillas hot with chutney or yogurt.
Note: You can also add some grated ginger, green chili, and coriander leaves for more flavor.
