At Thursday, me & my friends are having a Mexican themed party. I’m planning to make Enchiladas Casserole. In order to do that, I need tortillas. Here in Indonesia, they’re a bit pricey and hard to find, that’s why I decided to make them from scratch. I found the recipe online here, but I made one small alteration. I use 3 tablespoons of margarine, instead of 2 tablespoons lard. And though from the recipe’s reviews lots of them said that they’re pliable, mine are not. Maybe I made them too thick, but I like it a lot!
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1 1/2 cups water
Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.
Mix in the margarine with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.
Add the water and mix until the dough comes together.
place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic.
Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Use a well-floured rolling pin (I don’t have rolling pin, so i use drinking glass. haha) to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.
Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side.
continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.
Now isn’t this a lovely stack of homemade tortillas?
