Default Whole Wheat Tortillas 13 October 2014 Whole wheat tortillas
Perfecting a method of making whole wheat tortillas. The wheat flour is made in a WonderMill from whole wheat kernels.The flour is mixed with some water to make a dough.(No salt, oil or anything else is added for my product.) This has to be done carefully, since the dough cannot be sticky.A small dough ball is made and placed on a sheet of parchment paper to prevent sticking in the hand press. After pressing the parchment is readily removed and a knife is run under the tortilla, since it sticks slightly. The tortilla is cooked in a hot teflon pan on each side for about 40 seconds, them placed in the microwave to cause ballooning or separation of the two cooked surfaces. This further cooks by steam and is an essential step for good well cooked tortillas. These tortillas are called Chapati in India. Needless to say this product is not gluten free and if you have wheat belly the product is not for you.
