Homemade Tortillas & Indianized Wraps

Its has been a dream for me to make out home made tortillas instead of buying often the store bought tortillas..This time, i brownsed through many sites and finally my choice went for this version..If u r planning to make out tortillas at home definitely u need for simple ingredients like all purpose flour, baking powder,butter,salt and warm water..Whoever roll prefectly their rotis will get a prefect tortillas as this tortillas ressembles quite like our rotis..Its really worth to try and this home made tortillas can be frozen in a ziplock bags for upto several months..These tortillas are tasty,light, soft and fabulous..I have prepared these light tortillas and served along with Capsicum & Tofu Zunka for our dinner, everyone at home enjoyed this capsicum & tofu zunka wraps for our dinner with simple salad, definitely a healthy and complete dinner..


2cups All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
3tbsp Butter (room temperature)
Salt
Warm water

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder in a large bowl, add the butter and warm water to the flour and knead as a soft dough..cover the bowl with a towel and leave aside for 15minutes,divide the dough into 12-13 golf sized balls..roll each dough on a floured surface to form a very thin circles..heat a non stick pan, add the rolled tortillas and cook on both sides until the surface starts to bubble ..Turn the torilla and cook both sides until the tortillas turns slightly brown or half cooked...repeat the same process, until the dough get finished..Arrange the cooked tortillas in a ziplock bags and stor them either in fridge or in freezer...

Indianized Wraps:




Heat the already prepared home made tortillas on both side until they get cooked, arrange few spoons of Capsicum & Tofu Zunka in the center of the tortillas and roll them as wrap, pick the edge with a toothpick and serve immediately with salad or with french fries..

the wraps look perfect...i always use either sour cream and guacamole as topping inside the filling...it really enhances the taste.can the tortillas be made without the baking pwdr?
