Fresh Soft Tortillas

Serves: 2 | Preparation Time: 10 min


  • 3 Cup plain flour
  • 3 Teaspoon (Metric) baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon (Metric) sea salt
  • Pinch sugar (optional)
  • 3 to 4 tbsp vegetable oil (more for softer tortillas, olive oil will change the flavour but will work just the same)
  • 1 Cup water


Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and oil. Add water and mix with hands. Divide into 10 small balls. Roll each flat with rolling pin and cook on very hot un-greased griddle until lightly brown on each side.Note: Roll them as thin as you can and then again! You can prepare them before serving and place in the oven (180 degrees) on a covered tray with a sprinkling of water to keep them soft. Makes 10 tortillas.
