Tortillas are nothing but our Roti, made with all purpose flour. We can also make this with wheat flour. I have never tasted any wraps using tortillas, but I happened to taste a Quesadilla in a restaurant last month. Vj suggested to taste it and I instantly loved it. For past 2 weeks, I was craving for the quesadillas again and Vj took me to the restaurant and bought me the same on Valentines day… hehe. Then yesterday I thought why not try the same at home… I just googled for the info and successfully made today! Stay tuned for the salsa and quesadilla recipe coming up next!

And for those who are hearing these things for first time, do not think its not our kind of recipe, stay tuned and try the recipes, you are sure going to love it! The ingredients are also pretty ‘available’ only, no fancy things!
