Homemade Tortillas

A tortilla is popular in Mexico and used for making tacos, burritos, enchiladas etc it is a thin flat bread made out of all purpose flour and very similar to our Indian flat bread which is made with wheat. we can make this at home and you will never want to use store bought tortillas once you start making it at home.


All purpose flour/Maida - 2 cups
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Water - 1 cup
Olive oil - 3 tbsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp


Combine flour, baking powder, oil and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly start adding water and knead to make a smooth dough. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes to ferment. Divide dough into small portions.then roll each portion into a circle using a rolling pin. Heat a non-stick skillet and cook tortillas over medium heat on each side or until lightly browned. cool and store them in refrigerator and heat them when required.

we can store them in refrigerator for 3-4 days
