Homemade Flour Tortillas



You could easily buy flour tortillas at the supermarket, but making them at home is not that difficult either. If you have the time try making them because the recipe is very easy to follow. You don't have to have a perfect round tortilla but try to roll out the dough as thin as you can.






Homemade Flour Tortillas

Ingredients

3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 ¼ tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Sea Salt
4 Tbsp Shortening
¾ to 1 Cup Warm Water

Method

Combine flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a mixing bowl.

Add shortening and rub with your fingertips until it looks like fine crumbs and well incorporated.

Gradually mix in the warm water to form a soft dough. Then knead the dough for about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a cloth or plastic wrap. Let it rest for about 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 14 to 16 pieces and flatten it slightly into small rounds or disc. Cover the dough for another 10 minutes. Working with one piece of the dough at a time, roll it as thin as you can to about 6 ½ to 7 inches circle with a rolling pin.

Heat a griddle over medium heat. Place the rollout dough and cook for about 25 to 30 seconds on each side, flip over, and cook until the underside is lightly browned in spot and bubbles are formed.

Flip over one more time, cook for a few more seconds, then remove, wrap in a clean tea towel and set aside.

Makes 14 to 16 Flour Tortillas

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
