A lil thinking and a recipe.
Hey there all!
The last few days have been devoted to a lot of introspection about my life, my studies where my career is headed with my current research, my lifestyle with nutrition and exercise included and of course my new baby..my blog. Well the blog has been getting a lot of my attention lately. First I was thinking of reformatting the whole blog, then make an additional blog and keep the weight loss and food element separate + add some more features to it.
But then today I must make an honest admission, I am not that great with writing. I mean I am not a very expressive person. I have many ideas, many thoughts that come naturally but the moment I start typing I get frozen and the mind stops working.
Now back to a fun recipe, from the moment Angela posted her Spelt flour homemade Tortilla, I wanted to share my version to. For me making this is like an everyday job. Call it Tortilla, flatbread or as we Indians call it Roti, it is all the same. We call it Roti and is served alongside the Lentil dal or chickpea curry or any veggie. It is a staple ingredient just like bread would be in western cuisine.
Here’s my recipe,
1 cup Whole wheat flour
½ tsp salt
¾ cup water
Mix all the above ingredients and form a dough. Add in the water such that it is not too sticky but not to dry too!
Pluck out dough balls and then roll it in a circle well almost circle to shape it like a tortilla.
In a warm skillet heat one side for about 15 seconds until you see small bubbles developing down then flip on the other side.
Once air bubbles develop on the other side flip again.
Now with a Kitchen towel just press it and it will swell up with air. Brown it a lil and your very much homemade tortilla is ready to serve.
This is the bunch of Tortilla I made. Tortilla factory is open anyone interested in buying ..lol!!
Thinking of doing some variations this weekend. Can’t wait for Friday, spring break next week…what a relief!
See y’all guys tomorrow!
