Quesadilla for Breakfast-How about it?

As a kid I barely had the option to choose my breakfast and that too from a list that consisted only of three to four different items.  Usually it was always "dudh-muri", puffed rice in milk. I remember many days when I did not want to eat it and my mom would say, "lokkhi meyer moton kheye nao", eat like a good girl without any fuss. And on sundays it was invariably luchi, sada aloor tarkari and jilipi. On few occasions my mother would have made chowmein with lots of vegetables for me (specially in winter). But living in a global village as we do, I try to make different types of easy and healthy breakfast from around the world. While browsing the net for simple yet healthy recipe of something that my lilA could eat, I came across this simple quesadilla recipe. Its made only with 3 ingredients and is super fast to make. Quesa in Spanish means cheese, but quesadilla can have any fillings of your choice, from beans as in Mexican style to keema curry as in desi style. 

Preparation time: 2 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes


2 store bought flour tortillas
1 cup of shredded cheese mix (I used a mix of jack, cheddar and asedaro)
3 eggs
2 tablespoon milk (optional)

Beat the eggs with milk and salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a pan. (It is best to use a pan of almost same size of the tortilla). Pour the egg mix. Top it up with half cheese mix.

Cook for 2 minutes and place a tortilla on top of it. Cook for another 1 minute. 


Flip the tortilla carefully upside down. And add the remaining cheese mix on top of it. 

Place the second tortilla on top it. Press with the spatula. It will be very fluffy. Cook for minute or so and then flip it again. Cook for another minute. Be careful not to burn the tortillas. Cut the tortilla into 8 pie pieces with a pizza cutter or a knife, if you don't have one (like me!).

Your quesadilla is ready to enjoy. And it tasted so good!
