Corn tortillas

June 15, 2010

Makes about six tortillas.

125g Cornmeal
125g wheat-free flour (Doves wheat-free bread flour works well)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil
About 200ml freshly boiled water

Heat a dry frying pan over a medium-hot heat. Cut a couple of pieces of baking paper about 12″ by 12″.

Mix all dry ingredients well. Add the water a little at a time and mix to form a soft but not sticky dough. If you get a good dough without adding all the water then do not add the rest — you do not want the dough to be too damp.

Take a lump of dough half-way between a golf ball and a tennis ball in size and roll it out between two sheets of baking paper until. Peel the top sheet of baking paper carefully away (you may need to tease it slowly off working from different sides). Place the tortilla paper side up in the hot frying pan for a minute and then peel the second sheet of paper off (this sheet should come off easier than the first). Cook the tortilla for a couple of minutes per side. Place the cooked tortillas on a rack to cool.
