Tortilla & Burritos

A classic Mexican food with stuffing ranging from simple beans to well-done meat, from veggies to typical avocado, Burritos is a perfect blend of beautiful flavors. And for a well-done burrito, a freshly cooked torilla does the trick!!



1 cup corn flour ( perhaps a lil coarse to give texture)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
salt to taste
luke warm water


1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the water slowly.
2. Knead until smooth. The dough should be slightly sticky but should not crack or be hard. Add a little more water or flour if needed.
3. Cover and let it set for 10 minutes.
4.  Take a piece of the dough and shape it into a ball of the size of a large golf ball.
5.  Roll out the dough into a circle.
6. Heat a pan , add a little oil to grease it. Cook the tortilla for a minute of two. Don’t forget to flip and cook.

The tortillas are ready for use!! 🙂
