Instructions

  1. 1
    To begin, chop the vegetables youre going to use as a filling and leave aside.
  2. 2
    In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients, then the egg, milk, water and mix well till you get a mixture thats not too thick or thin. It should be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon once dipped in and removed.
  3. 3
    If you the mixture looks very thick, go ahead and add little water at a time, making sure you dont add too much water.
  4. 4
    Heat a non stick pan on medium heat and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  5. 5
    Using a spoon, pour out a little of the mixture in the centre of the pan and spread it out very gently with the back of the spoon so that you get a nice thin and round tortilla.
  6. 6
    Wait for it to cook for at least a minute. If the tortilla is cooked on one side it will automatically leave the pan, making it very easy for you to turn it over.
  7. 7
    Turn the tortilla over and cook the other side for another minute and a half and remove.
  8. 8
    Get the second tortilla ready in the similar manner. Once the second tortilla is cooked, leave it in the pan, add the fillings and cover it with another tortilla.
  9. 9
    Keep the heat low and continue cooking the quesadilla on each side until it turns nice and brown and slightly crispy.
