Vegetarian Quesadilla

This is my go-to recipe. Love the taste, the result and my happy smile after I have eaten it. This is an easy lunch or dinner favourite. You can throw in literally any flavours you want into the quesadilla. Leftover sabzi, or chicken (any meat of that matter). Anything tastes good with cheese. And loads of it. The mayonnaise and cheese together give an amazing oozy and melted feel.
