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. Just googled for the info in Wiki and successfully made today!

And for those who are hearing these things for first time, do not think it's not our kind of recipe. I am sure Indian taste buds love Mexican dishes. The ingredients are also pretty ‘available’ only, no fancy things!


Mexican tortillas or usually made of corn flour (the yellow one, maize flour/ masa) without any leavening agent. It's gluten free.

On contrast homemade flour tortillas have both gluten and a bit of leavening agent.
