My hubby has been asking for flat bread something like chapati where you can eat with curry or roll up with fillings and fresh vegetables. But I wasn't keen to buy ready made ones from the stores because I believe it contains much fats. So when I saw this recipe from Lena of Frozen Wing's blog, I thought it is time to try them. Just wondering whether the oil quantity can be reduced.
I prepared the 12345 Chicken Fillet as fillings for these tortillas.
[makes 10 pieces]
250 gm [2 cups] all purpose flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
- Sift flour and salt into a medium size bowl. Add oil and warm water. Use a pair of chopstick to stir to combine all the ingredients into a dough.
- Transfer dough onto a lightly floured smooth surface. Knead for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth [not difficult to work out dough].
- Divide dough into 10 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Preheat a cast iron skillet or a heavy based non-stick pan. Roll each ball into a circle of 6" in diameter. Cook one at a time, flipping halfway through cooking, when it starts to puff and a few spots appear.
- Stack up tortillas and serve them with any fillings or curry.
If serving later, stack tortillas and wrap in foil to enclose. Bake for 3-4 minutes or until hot in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius. To assemble, place some salad leaves, chicken, onions on tortilla. Squeezed any preferred sauce [bbq, chilli, yoghurt or mayonnaise] on top. Wrap and roll. Cut into sections and serve at once.
