  • In the meantime, heat oil in a large wok. Add garlic and red chili flakes, saute 5 minutes until the garlic is fragrant
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and 1/2 tsp salt, stir well, cover and cook on high flame for 3-4 minutes to allow the mushrooms to release water. Add 1 pkt masala oats, and cook over high flame, stirring once in awhile until the mushrooms are almost dry
  • Add the garlic greens, fresh coriander, worcestershire sauce and fresh pepper. Stir well, add the caramelised onions and season with freshly ground pepper
  • Add the quark and lime juice, and stir well until the quark melts and forms a nice sauce.Taste and adjust seasoning if required

 

Assemble

 

  • Lay the tortilla on a plate. Line with salad leaves, top with bell peppers, followed by the mushroom caramelised onion filling. Sprinkle over chopped garlic greens  and fresh red chili as garnishing
  • Fold over the tortilla and fasten with toothpicks. Gently heat on a very low pan for 5 minutes. Serve warm
