How to Make Flour Tortillas
- 5You will likely not need all the water. Just use enough to knead all you ingredients into one large ball of dough. Dough should not be sticky. You should be able to clean your mixing bowl with the dough. If it is sticky add some flour until you have a small ball of dough or masa (spanish). You can let the dough sit for about 30 mins to help tortillas rise but it is not necessary.
- 8Just roll out easily and do not press too hard. You should be making about a 7 inch round tortilla. Place tortilla on your heated "comal". You might have to play with the heat a little to estimate how much time to cook each side. A tortilla only EVER requires 3 turns when cooking. Watch video. Cook each side for about 10 - 20 seconds each. Depends on the heat and your stove. I count in my head, just makes it easier. You will get used to it.
