Samosadilla (Samosa Quesadilla) is one of the famous Indian Recipe. Anyone can make it at home using only a few steps.
Mashup of samosas and quesadillas equals samosadilla! A super easy to make and healthier way to eat samosas. This version uses tortillas that are filled with samosa filling, chutneys, cheese and tortilla chips for some crunch.
In this recipe, you make the samosa filling same as you would normally, but skip the dough and deep-frying. Instead, you put the filling inside a flour tortilla and fry that in a tablespoon or two of oil.
Now, it’s not as good as a real samosa, but it’s still pretty outstanding. The filling is spicy and flavorful (and you can adjust the potato texture and spice level to your liking), and the tortilla takes on this flaky, crispy-chewy texture that’s not far off from the genuine article.

At this moment, combine all of the spices along with 1 teaspoon salt, cumin powder, coriander, paprika, garam masala into a small bowl to mix it up well. And fry it over a slow flame for 5-6 minutes.
- Now add some chilly paste, ginger and garlic paste in the previously made onion birista with other spices. Cook and stir until the mixture is well combined, about 2 minutes. Add green peas. And cook it straight for the next 4-5 minutes. And keep it on low flame.
- Now transfer the whole in the bowl of potatoes. Add a small part of cilantro and lemon juice. Mix with a spatula until it becomes smooth and mixed up well with the mashed potatoes. Add salt if needed. (Optional)
- Now combine the onion paste, mint, cilantro, chilly paste, lime juice and yogurt in a blender to make a smooth texture. You can add some salts if needed (optional).
- Put some of the fillings on one side of the Tortilla and fold it in half. Repeat the same with the remaining tortillas. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook each quesadilla until it becomes golden browned and crispy. You need to do it for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer quesadilla onto a smooth plate and cut it into 1/3 portion.
