Instructions

  • Combine lukewarm milk, oil, salt, baking powder in a bowl. Mix well
  • Add flour but hold back about 2-3 tablespoons.
  • Mix with a wooden spoon until shaggy dough form.
  • Transfer to a clean work surface and knead for about 3-5 minutes.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add flour.
  • If it's on the dry side, add a little water, a tablespoon at a time
  • The dough should be soft.
  • Form into a ball, cover with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 15-30 minutes.
  • Divide ball of dough into 8-10 equal pieces
  • Put a griddle pan over medium heat to preheat while you are working on the tortilla.
  • Form each piece into a ball and flatten it into a disk.
  • Then using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a very thin circle about 8" in diameter.
  • It doesn't have to be perfect circle.
  • Just roll it thin.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  • When you're done, turn the heat up to high.
  • The griddle pan or non-stick frying pan should be very hot before you cook the tortilla.
  • Carefully put a tortilla on the hot pan.
  • Cook for about a minute, when you see it starting to puff, flip to cook the other side.
  • It will balloon. Press gently on the edges, to make the air move and cook the tortilla evenly.
  • Flip again and cook for about 30 seconds more.
  • Take it out of the pan, put it on a plate and cover with another plate to keep warm and soft while you finish cooking all the tortilla.
  • Use immediately. You can make sandwiches, enchiladas or dip it in curry.
  • Enjoy!
