What is that one thing that Coronavirus pandemic has taught us? The most common answer will be – using our resources to the fullest. Be it our grocery items or left-over food, we have tried not to waste even a morsel of it. Unlike the pre-pandemic era (when disposing extra food did not even grab our attention), the months-long lockdown has seen people invoking their creative selves to make amazing dishes at home, with minimum resources and left-over food. Going for a cue from that, today we bring you a quick and easy desi-style Quesadilla recipe, which is prepared using left-over rotis and a few simple ingredients. All you need to do is, prepare a filling and fold it in a roti and indulge!
