Servings 6 tortillas


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder optional
  • 1 tsp oil optional
  • 1/4 cup warm water


Make the dough

  • In a large mixing bowl place the dry ingredients like flour, baking powder, salt. Whisk them together.
  • Add oil and mix to crumble.
  • Then add warm water slowly and gradually mix the ingredients till it forms a nice dough. The dough shouldn't be very tight or of flowy consistency.

Knead the dough smooth

  • Once the perfect dough is formed, knead the dough for 5 minutes by applying pressure through fist and fingers.
  • Knead until it turns soft. It shouldn't be sticking to the surface while kneading.
  • If it sticks, add a few more flours (1 tsp at a time) to it and knead. Too much flour may make the tortillas dry.

Rest the dough for 10 - 15 minutes

  • Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let it rest for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes take out the dough, divide it into equal portions of the golf ball or smaller.

Roll the dough into tortillas

  • Sprinkle some flour on the surface.
  • Now with help of a rolling pin, try to flatten the roundel equally from all sides.
  • This will result in a thin round tortilla. Make sure they are evenly rolled. Roll the tortilla just before cooking.

Cook the tortillas

  • Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, place the rolled tortilla on it. In 20 - 25 seconds you may notice small puffs on the tortilla.
  • Time to flip the tortilla now.
  • Flip it and press lightly with a kitchen towel.
  • This will help in even cooking of surface while the tortilla puffs.
  • Cook for another 25 - 30 seconds. If the tortilla takes more time to puff, increase the heat slightly.
  • Make sure the edges and center of the circle are cooked well.
  • Once cooked well on both the sides, remove and store and cover with a kitchen towel. A well cooked tortilla puffs nicely with brown spots all over.
  • To make it a little charred, you can also place them on direct flame for 10 seconds each side.
