Rajgara Quesadilla (Farali)

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


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Rajgira flour, mashed potatoes, cumin powder, sendha namak, and black pepper powder. Mix well to form a dough.
  2. Divide the dough into 8-10 equal-sized balls.
  3. Roll out each ball into a circle, about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Place a circle of dough on a hot griddle or tawa, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  5. Spread grated cheese on one half of the paratha, and fold it in half to make a quesadilla.
  6. Cook the quesadilla on both sides until the cheese is melted.
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
  8. Serve the quesadillas hot with chutney or yogurt.

Note: You can also add some grated ginger, green chili, and coriander leaves for more flavor.
