An all-time favourite Mexican snack prepared with mild twists that make it acceptable as an occasional treat for diabetics. The tortillas in this recipe are made with whole wheat flour instead of maida and are stuffed with a delectably flavoured mixture of sautéed veggies and low-fat paneer.
The grated low-fat paneer gives a nice texture to the stuffing, making it soft and succulent enough so you do not notice the absence of cheese. With loads of fibre-rich veggies and no refined flour or cheese, the Veggie Stuffed Quesadillas make a delicious snack for diabetics.
