Homemade Wholewheat Tortilla Recipe

Homemade Wholewheat Tortillas
I never realized tortillas were so simple to make. And cooking it is straight forward and quick.

Tortillas are usually round, and if you are good at rolling, it will be round. In my case I made a dozen and about half of them were round, if we stretch the definition of round! The unround ones were just as delicious. They deserved some attention too. Lets call these the rustic tortillas!

Homemade Wholewheat Tortillas

Recipe adopted from Daily Dish

2¾ cup wholewheat flour (or white flour if you prefer)
5 tablespoons butter (diced), or a mixture of butter and oil
¾ cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder

1.      Sift together flour, baking powder and salt
2.      Add butter to the flour mixture and mix until it looks like bread crumbs. Its easier to do this using your food processor or pastry cutter
3.      Add water and knead until the dough comes together
4.      Break the dough up into 12 separate balls and place them on a tray. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for an hour
5.      Sprinkle some flour on the work surface and roll out the dough until quite thin. Keep the rolled dough covered until ready to cook
6.      Cook tortillas on a hot ungreased pan. As soon as the underside gets dark brown spots, flip over. This may take about a minute.
7.      Cook until the other side is done.
8.   Keep the cooked tortillas wrapped in a tea towel, to keep soft.
