Tortilla

Last week Aina’s shipment from UK just arrived and it means we need to clear some of our unwanted stuff in the closet. Well… to be honest.. we kept a lot of our old stuff … we have a hard time to let go most of our things… I still have the duvet and duvet cover from my study years in Sheffield 27 years ago hehehe. Hoarders? Nay… we are not hoarders hahaha… we are just people who are attached to their belongings 🙂

I am not looking forward to the whole exercise of clearing the closet space to make space for Aina’s stuff but I am so excited to receive these…

As I told you in my last posting, my other half always buy me the Lilliput cottages whenever we go to UK. This year is no exception. He ordered them through eBay couple of months prior to our trip and get them shipped to Aina and Nurin’s house. This year we were a bit unlucky because one of the cottages got damage during the shipment but the seller was very good… we got back our money almost immediately after we send him the photos of the chipped cottage. I am looking forward to re arrange my collection.. hopefully soon. Need to find some time and do it. Will share with you guys the photos soon.

Okay… as for the recipe today… I am glad that I found it. One of my dear friend posted it in her blog and I am pleased to let you know that I have been using this recipe for few times already. It is so easy to make and trust me.. you would not regret making it. They are sooo soft. I use these homemade tortillas for many things from fajitas, shawarma, pizza base or simply eat them with curry. What I love about this homemade tortillas is you can freeze them for later use… simply defrost them in microwave and then heat them up on the pan. They still taste like a fresh made one.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup warm water
Methods
  • Combine flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl of a mixer. Using a dough hook, mix the dry ingredients until well combined.
  • Add oil and water with the mixer running on medium speed. When mixture comes together and begins to form a ball decrease the speed to low. Continue to mix for another 2 minutes or until the dough is smooth.
  • Transfer the dough onto a floured work surface. Divide into 16 equal portions. Form each piece into a ball and cover them with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes before proceeding.
  • After the rest period, heat a large pan over medium heat. Roll each ball into a rough circle, about 6-7 inches in diameter, keep the work surface and rolling pin lightly floured.

  • When the pan is hot, place a dough circle into the pan and allow to cook about 1 minute or until the bottom surface has a few pale brown spots and the uncooked surface is bubbly.

  • Flip to the other side and cook for another 15-20 seconds.

  • Remove from the pan and stack them in a covered container or zippered bag to keep them soft.

Okay guys… happy cooking and enjoy your weekends with family. Assalamualaikum.
