indian quesadillas 

Let me start by saying I love mixing cultures ;) , so here is a sort of crazy recipe , that only exist in my mind jiji..., but I promise you it tastes great!!. Whole wheat tortillas are very similar to Indian roti, so to me it was a natural substitute . If you have an indian market near you or if you are willing to make roti from scratch it is also good to use here. You can make a vegetarian or vegan variation really easily . They are great for brunch, breakfast or lunch. I am aware that you may not have all the spices available, but make them with the ones you have. You should also adjust the spiciness level to your liking . As for spices that you may wonder what they are: Amchoor powder is  made from dried green mangos, it adds a pleasant sweet and sour flavor along with vitamin A,C,D, B6 and betacarotenes. The other spice you may have not heard of unless you are from India is Asafoetida powder that comes from the tap root of the  ferula, a plant in the celery family that in flavor  it is sort of oniony and fennel like tasting. Aside of providing the umami flavor to indian cuisine, it acts as a digestive aid. Since indian cooking uses many spices, this helps neutralize the acidity the food may cause. I hope you are willing to ry this recipe , because it is simply delicious :) : )
