Tortillas

 My third son nagged me for beef folders but there is no Tortillas sold in Miri's bakeries. So I ended up making my own Tortillas which I've been wanting to try to make anyway. I was so surprised how easy to make this - a lot easier than making Roti Canai because less kneading & moulding effort. The recipe from the book is very good and produces the right texture of Tortillas just like what I used to buy from Giant supermarket in Taiping.

Watch out the next post to see how I served this with beef filling.

(Makes 10 pieces)
INGREDIENTS:
250g Plain Flour*
1 tsp Baking Powder*
1/2 tsp Salt* (* sifted together) - orig measurement is 1 tsp
55g Shortening
175ml Warm Water - HomeKreation: I did not use all

METHOD:
1. Rub shortening into flour mixture & add water to form a smooth dough.
2. Cover with cling film & rest 15 min.
3. Divide into 10 balls & rest 10 mins.
4. Roll out each ball between 2 pieces of plastic to 8" round.
To get this size, you need to roll the dough to the thinnest possible.
4. Cook it on a non-stick pan & flip when the surface starts to bubble.
Cook the other side until the surface has brownish spots.
5. Serve with your favourite fillings for examples salads, chicken, beef or seafood.
