Instructions

Prep

  • Boil the potatoes. Let them cool.
  • Chop the onions and green chilies.
  • Heat up a castiron skillet. Once hot, add oil followed by cumin seeds. Saute for 30 seconds.
  • Add the onions. Saute for 5 minutes until slightly brown.
  • This is what you should have.

Make the Potato Masala

  • Peel the potatoes.
  • Mash the potatoes.
  • Add the spices - mango powder, garam masala, red chili powder, coriander powder, and salt.
  • Now add the sauteed onions from earlier.
  • Add fresh cilantro and ginger.
  • Mix well.

Prepare the Yogurt Dipping Sauce (wing it)

  • In a bowl, add yogurt. Dilute with a little water if need be. Add salt, red chili powder, chat masala, and cumin powder.
  • Mix well.

Make the Quesadillas

  • Heat up a castiron skillet on low-medium heat. Once hot, spray avocado oil. Place a whole wheat tortilla on the skillet. I like Trader Joe's Olive Oil Whole Wheat Tortillas. Flip the tortilla.
  • Add Mexican cheese to half of the quesadilla.
  • Add roughly 1/3 - 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes.
  • Top with more cheese over potatoes.
  • Fold the other half of the quesadilla and cook on both sides. Feel free to use a lid to cover the pan so the cheese melts.
  • Aloo Paratha Quesadilla is ready. Cut into thirds.
