Ingredients

  • 4 Pieces Tortilla/Chapatis
  • 1/2 Cup Finely Chopped/ Grated Broccoli
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Paneer/Indian Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Chilly Flakes optional
  • 1 clove Garlic optional
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil or any flavorless oil
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • Pizza sauce or Tomato Ketchup as required
  • Butter to spread on the tortillas

Instructions

  • Finely chop or grate broccoli.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add onions, coarsely crushed garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes until broccoli is soft. Add salt to taste.
  • Take out the broccoli and onion mix in a bowl. Let it cool a little. Add crumbled paneer to it, black pepper and chili flakes to it and mix well.
  • Take two tortillas, on one side spread little butter, flip it and put spread some pizza sauce or tomato ketchup. Spread the cheese and broccoli paneer mix. 
  • Cover with the other tortilla. You can spread sauce on the tortilla or cover it just like that. Spread butter on the upper side.
  • Make quesadilla in the quesadilla maker or on a grill pan or use your regular griddle to make it.
  • Cook on from both the side till the cheese melts and the quesadilla are crunchy from both the sides.
  • Cut into four triangles using a pizza cutter and serve with tomato ketchup or sour cream or the dip of your choice.

Notes

you can use homemade paneer or store bought paneer/Indian Cottage Cheese. OR add any other cheese of your choice. You can also skip adding Paneer to it. Shredded chicken pieces can be added if you prefer eating non-veg. 
Many times I add mushroom also along with broccoli, add that if you want.
Don't put too much butter or oil while cooking quesadillas. These can lose the crunch and become soggy.
