2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1cup warm water and/or milk for kneading
Mix ingredients together, add the warm water and/or milk and make a soft dough. Knead it well.
Let it rest covered for at least 20 minutes, then divide the dough into 8 equal portions.
Roll each one out as thin as you can (plate size).
Once all are rolled out, heat a tawa/non-stick pan and place the tortillas one at a time, cooking each briefly for a few seconds on medium-high heat then turning it to cook the other side until bubbly and slightly golden.
Don’t overcook them as you need them to be soft and pliable, not crisp or hard.
Keep the ready ones covered in a hot pot or under a towel to keep them soft. You can use ready-made tortillas as well.
