home made tortillas


This is my recipe for homemade tortillas, I served them in this instance with tandoori chicken.

You will need:- 2 cups plain flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoons baking powder, 1 tablespoons butter and 3/4 cup of water.

Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the butter with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal. Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 10 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Preheat a large frying pan (dry – do not add any oils etc) over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla. Place into the hot frying pan, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Place the cooked tortilla on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm and continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.

  1. Hi Lisa. I made a gluten and dairy free version of these today and they worked quite well. They didn’t puff up as much as yours, though gluten free never does.


      1. HI Lisa. I use my own flour mix (brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca flour) I added some xanthum gum. A lot of commercial mixes already have gum in them. And yes I used coconut oil in its solid form.
