  1. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until light golden, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, curry powder and cumin; saute for 1 minute. Set aside.
  2. Mash chickpeas in a bowl with a potato masher or a fork. Stir in yogurt, chutney and the onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the chickpea mixture among 3 of the tortillas, spreading evenly. Top with the remaining tortillas and press to seal.
  3. Heat a large dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place one of the quesadillas in the skillet and toast until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Cut each one into 3 wedges and serve hot, with additional yogurt for dipping.

Dry and pretty bland I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out rather dry and bland. By kicking up the spices a notch and adding more yogurt (which, unfortuantely, adds more calories) would improve it. Pros: Healthy Cons: Dry and bland

My kids loved this. Even my very picky eater. I also spiced up the yogurt dip with the mango chutney.
