Flour tortillas

Posted on July 23, 2009. Filed under: pizza | Tags: |

With the Spanish influence, wheat flour was introduced in Mexico and was quickly used for making tortillas.

Cooking Time : 5 min.
Preparation Time : 15 min.

Makes 12 tortillas.

1 teacup wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
2 teacups plain flour (maida)
4 teaspoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Mix the flours, oil and salt and make a dough by adding enough warm water.
2. Knead the dough well and keep for 1/2 hour. Knead again.
3. Depending on the diameter you require for the dish, roll out the dough into 6″ (150 mm.) or 9″ (225 mm.) diameter thin rounds with the help of a little flour.
4. Cook lightly on a tava (griddle) and keep aside.
Make large quantities and freeze in a refrigerator, as tortillas are used extensively in Mexican food.
They should be present at every Mexican meal, served warm, stacked within warm white cloth.
And then placed inside a colourful straw basket.
