Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour/maida
  • 2 spring onions with stem chopped
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 ½ sweet corn
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 10 tortillas
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt

Instructions
 

  • To prepare the filling:
  • Heat butter in a heavy bottom pan. Add the flour/maida and mix with a whisk stirring continuously until smooth, about 2-3 minutes making sure there are no lumps formed.
  • Add the spring onion and greens and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in the milk gradually stirring all the while until the sauce thickens.
  • When the sauce has thickened add the sweet corn kernels, tomatoes, salt, freshly ground black pepper and half the grated cheese and mix well.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • To assemble the quesadillas:
  • Place a tortilla on a skillet/cast iron griddle on medium heat. Layer the sweet corn, shredded cabbage and some cheese onto the tortilla.
  • Top with another tortilla and let it cook for a couple minutes. Pour a few drops of olive oil and press down on the top tortilla with a spatula and then carefully flip the quesadilla.
  • Put some olive oil on the other side of the tortilla.
  • Cook for a couple more minutes, until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crisped and slightly browned.
  • Serve with sour cream and mexican hot sauce.
