250g Plain Flour, 60g of fat (I used margarine) and 125ml warm water - combine, knead for 3 mins, rest for 30mins, roll out and dry fry 20-30 secs each side.
Cheers & Happy Easter
I have been trying for quite some time now to end up with soft tortillas (or chapati, roti). I now have a container full of crackers....good crackers.....but crackers
Watched a heck of a lot of YouTube videos (tortillas, chapati, roti) and found some recipies on google.
The (common) basic recipe is: 2 cups flour, 2 teaspoon baking powder, I teaspoon sea salt, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 3/4 cup warm water.
I was wanting something not white and without lard. I started with multigrain flour, but am now at "1 cup white+1 cup whole wheat" . I have tried 2T olive oil and
recently a half cup of extra virgin olive oil. I have tried mixing/kneading dough to a drier-breadlike consistency and recently tried a wet tacky one. I have added the oil to the flour first and mixed before adding and mixing water. I have always let the dough sit covered for around 20 minutes.
I am using a nice thick bottomed stainless steel pan at a medium heat so it does not burn quickly.
I can never get the dough to bubble up in the heated pan as in all the YouTube videos. No matter how long I cook them, they dry up to some really nice crackers.....I
swear, if I ever see those bubbles...I'll have to change my underwear. It seems I have tried everything. A lot of videos use oil instead of lard..... There has got to be
something I am missing... Please help!!!!
