Homemade PlainTortillas

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
2/3 cup warm water
  1. 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.
  2. Transfer dough onto a lightly floured smooth surface.  Knead for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth [not difficult to work out dough].
  3. Divide dough into 10 pieces.  Roll each piece into a ball.  Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
