Handmade Whole Wheat Tortilla ハンドメイドトルティーヤ
I LOVE Tacos. Especially quesadilla and enchilada always make it hard for me to choose. Thinking of lack of eating Mexican food eventually made me make tortilla by myself. This time, again, I used whole wheat (bread) flour mixing with all-purpose one. The reason I've been using the whole wheat flour is simply because I want to finish asap. I'm not in a hurry but I like to use plain bread wheat more than this dark one. I'm not familiar with kinds of wheat but it feels like when I use the whole wheat one the texture feels harder than plain one, doesn't pump up much, and the result is almost always different from what I expect. No idea if this is what it's supposed to be and if I only need to know this is so, but ..this isn't for me. The whole wheat, you are very healthy, beautiful as shown, good for the body, skin, and maybe balance up the nutrition, so here goes, tortilla.
The recipe I used.
6 sheets (I made it *2: made 12 sheets) Ingredients....
- 3/4 cup/150g All purpose flour (薄力粉)
- 1/4 cup/50g Wheat flour (強力粉)
- 3 tablespoon (24g) Olive oil (オリーブオイル)
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking powder (ベーキングパウダー)
- Salt As needed (塩(ひとつまみ))
- Warm water As need (お湯)
1: Mix both the flours, salt, baking powder well in a bowl.
Add olive oil and rub well. yea I know this looks weird.
2: Gradually add required warm water and knead to a smooth dough. You can rest the dough for 15 minutes. Divide into 5 or 6 equal sized balls.
3: Roll into thin discs, dust when ever needed with all purpose flour.
By the way, I'd recommend you not to make it twice more amount of ingredients. Rolling out doughs into very thin discs isn't "second" work like cookies; imagine you finally finish disc-ing 2 or 3 doughs and finding another 10 untouched doughs which you need to do the same labor work with. You don't want it..right?
I ended up opening windows. 6 is just nice, good, exciting amount to enjoy, really. :) no 12.
4: Heat a pan and toast the rolled tortillas on both sides in medium flame until slight golden dots starts to appear,also take care its evenly cooked. *no oil to add here*
