Spelt Tortillas

Posted: March 24, 2013 in Bread, Thermo cooking

Spelt and wheat tortillas are fast becoming a favourite in our house. They have replaced the bleached white flat bread that we previously bought on a regular basis. However I have been hesitate to post me recipe until I was sure I was onto a winner. We use these tortillas for enchiladas, tacos and just to keep frozen in the freezer for a tasty wrap.

These can be made in a food processor, by hand or in a thermo machine, like the Bellini, Thermomix or Thermochef.

Recipe By: Me
Serving Size: 12
Cuisine: Mexican
Main Ingredient: Flour
Categories: Summer, Lunch, Dough, Bread

-= Ingredients =-
1 tsp salt
3 tblsp olive oil
1 tsp baking powder
170 g water ; (tempid)
150 g plain flour
170 g spelt flour ; wholemeal

-= Instructions =-
Put all ingredients into bowl.
Mix for 10 seconds on speed 7 to combine. Set to locked position and knead for 3 minutes.
If doing by hand just combine, with spoon until it comes together and knead by hand.
Leave dough in bowl for 30 mins to rest.
Divide dough into 12 pieces and roll each flat into rounds.
Fry in lightly oiled hot frying pan until they start to brown. Turn them over and cook other side.

Tip: – As I use wholemeal spelt flour it needs to be combined with 50% wheat to hold together as it is quite heavy. However if you buy spelt without wholemeal just decrease the liquid to 150 g water and a little under 3 tablespoons of oil as the glutins are weaker in the spelt.
