Paneer and corn quesadillas, serve this dinner-time treat to your kids, to see their day end in a fun way! given a choice, your little ones would freak out on corn, but its poor protein quality makes it a not-so-healthy option. However, adding paneer and mozzarella cheese increases the protein quotient of the quesadillas.
