  6. Cut it into small portions (6-8 depending on how big you want your tortillas to be).
  7. Take one portion, dust some extra flour on top and roll the ball into a round about 1/10 inch thick (I like to use a bread & butter plate as a guide).

  • Knead the dough for a few minutes until it is smooth.

  • Place a pan on heat and roast the tortillas on both sides for a few minutes until you notice brown spots on the surface. Repeat until you have roasted each portion.

You can use these tortillas in pretty much any way that you would use store bought tortillas, for the following wraps I used:

  • Lettuce, boiled beans, tomatoes, onions, coriander and chillies in each tortilla.
  • Top it with some mayonnaise and wrap the tortillas.
  • Enjoy with a slice of lime!
