Corn Quesadillas with red and green dips

quesdilla 5Its mexican time again! The first thing I thought of when I made this tamatar ka bharta ( burnt tomato dip) was to make some more tortillas to dunk into them. I went a step ahead and made some quesdillas out of the tortillas. Traditionally the tortillas or quesdillas are served with tomato salsa and cheesy dips. But the burnt flavour of the bharta added immense taste to them.

I have slightly Indianised the quesadilla too by smearing them liberally with green chutney. Doesnt the green colour look vibrant? check out the little tips I have shared in my green chutney post.
