Ingredients (8 servings):

  • 375 g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 60 ml vegetable oil
  • 160 ml water
  1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add the oil and the water and stir it with a fork till the dough clumps together.
  3. Place the dough on a table and continue kneading with your hands until it is smooth and pliable.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball, cover it with a towel (or wrap in foil) and let it rest for 15 minutes.
  5. Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces, depending on how big you want the tortillas to be.
  6. Dust each piece with some flour, shape into a ball and press it flat with the flat of your hand. Now roll out the flattened dough balls thinly with a rolling pin.
  7. Heat a pan with a little oil over medium heat. Fry the tortillas for 30-60 seconds per side until brownish spots appear.
  8. As soon as the tortillas are baked, it is best to wrap them in a clean towel immediately.
