Veggie Quesadilla!!

What is Quesadilla??
A quesadilla is a dish in Mexican cuisine or Tex-Mex, which involves cooking ingredients, most importantly cheese, inside a corn or wheat tortilla or a wrapping of masa (cornmeal dough)). The word comes from Spanish, and literally means "little cheesy thing" (from queso, or "cheese", + ada, an adjectival suffix, + illa, a diminutive suffix).
[keh-sah-DEE-yah] A flour tortilla filled with a savory mixture, then folded in half to form a half-moon shape. The filling can include shredded cheese, cooked meat, refried beans or a combination of items. After the tortilla is filled and folded, it's toasted under a broiler or fried. Quesadillas are usually cut into strips before being served, often as an appetizer

As filling can be of any choice,being a vegetarian i choose to make Veg Quesadilla!!!
Large flour tortillas
Grated cheese - either mild or sharp cheddar, or Monterey Jack
Olive oil

Veggie:(Use whatever available in ur Kitchen)
I prefer:
1 Onion Cubed
2 Mushrooms Cubed
1 Green pepper(or/and any other colour pepper) cubed
1 Clove garlic
Green onions
1-2 Green chili
Black Pepper
pinch of oregano

Heat a pan,add 1 tbs spoon of oil stir fry the veggie until soft(not completely it should be crunchy),add salt,pepper n oregano.Keep aside.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over one half of a tortilla. Place Veggie mixture, barely overlapping, on top of cheese. Then sprinkle 2 more tablespoons of cheese on top of the veggies and fold the tortilla in half.Try to press the open side with the help of fork. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Heat tawa over medium-high heat,sprinkle 1 tbs of oil and cook quesadilla until the cheese melts and the tortillas are golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Serve hot with Sour Cream or Ur choice of salsa..
