Directions

Place the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the onion, garlic and ginger. Saute until the onion is soft and golden, about 4 minutes. Add the coriander seeds, garam masala, paprika, turmeric, and salt and toast for 15 seconds and then add the tomato paste, stirring well to incorporate it. Add the chicken pieces and stir well to coat them the spice mixture and cook until the chicken is almost cooked through, about 8 minutes. Add the yogurt and continue to cook until the chicken is done, about 2 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place a tortilla on a baking sheet and then cover the surface with some filling. Sprinkle on a third of the cheese and then place another tortilla on top and press it down gently. Brush the top with a bit of oil and then repeat with the remaining tortillas, until 3 quesadillas are assembled. You may need multiple baking sheets. Bake the quesadillas in the preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is slightly golden. Cut the quesadilla into wedges and serve.

    Very good!! I crushed up the coriander seeds in my mortal and pestal. Bal usually crushes them in her hand right before she puts them in the dish. This opens up the flavor. I also added homemade guacamole to it and the flavors together were like WOW!! Love it!!

    Excellent!!! I used ground corriander seeds - same amount and they tasted great and had no problem with the seed texture!! Also made it in our quesadilla maker and worked wonderfully!! The spices used I had to go out and buy but I add to so many dishes now that I'm already almost out of them!!
