Tomato Cilantro Quesadilla

Quesadillas are tortilla folded in half after they have been sprinkled with cheese and vegetables. They are pan roasted on both sides to make them crispy. They make a great snack. They are very versatile and can be filled with any vegetable or cheese.

My daughter loves quesadillas so I try different combinations. I usually use poli or our everyday flat bread as the base. That way I know what goes into it. The flat bread is made out of whole wheat. I usually make all the bread and then heat it up one by one to make the quesadilla.

You will need
2 poli (recipe here)
1 medium tomato
a bunch cilantro
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Make the poli and keep aside. Cut the tomato into two. Remove and discard the seeds. Chop the pulp finely. Chop the cilantro.

Heat a griddle pan. Place one poli on the pan and let it heat completely on one side, about 3-4 minutes. Flip it over and working quickly spread a forth of the cheese followed by half of the tomato and cilantro on one half of the poli. Now add a third of the remaining cheese and fold in half.

Heat it on both sides of the folded poli so the cheese melts.

Serve hot.
