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 didn't even grab our attention), the months-long lockdown has seen people invoking their creative selves to whip up amazing dishes at home, with minimum resources and left-over food. Taking a cue from that, today we bring you a quick and easy desi-style Quesadilla recipe, which is prepared using leftover rotis and a few simple ingredients. All you need to do is, prepare a filling and fold it in a roti and indulge!

Here's The Recipe For Chicken Quesadillas With Leftover Roti:
2 leftover rotis
Half cup chopped onion
Half cup chopped bell pepper (of any colour)
Half cup chopped tomato (de-seeded)
2 chopped green chillies
1.5 cup chicken (boiled and shredded)
Grated cheese, as much you want
Salt as per taste
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp oil (preferably olive or veg oil)
Step 1. Heat some oil in a pan and add the shredded chicken to it. Cook for a while till the chicken turns golden brown in colour. Transfer it to a bowl.
Step 2. In the same pan and oil, add onion, bell pepper, tomato and green chilli to it; stir fry the vegetables. Make sure it doesn't lose the crunch.
Step 3. Now, put the cooked chicken in the pan, add salt and black pepper to it and mix all the ingredients together.
Step 4. Simultaneously, toast the leftover rotis on a tawa or griddle. You can grease the tawa with some oil if you want. Toast the rotis on both the sides.
Step 5. Now, add some cheese and the chicken-veggie mix on one side of the roti and fold.
Step 6. Toast the roti till it gets a nice crunchy brown colour to it.
Step 7. Once you are satisfied with the texture, switch off the flame and take the quesadilla on a plate cut it in a triangular shape.
