Ingredients

  • 350

    g/12 oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting

  • 1

    tsp salt

  • 1/2

    tsp baking powder

  • 75

    g/23/4 oz shortening or white vegetable fat, diced

  • 125

    about 125 ml/4 fl oz hot water

Directions

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the shortening and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add enough water to form a soft dough. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape each into a ball. Cover with a clean tea towel and let rest for 15 minutes. Roll out 1 ball at a time, keeping the remainder of the dough covered, into an 18-cm/7-inch circle. Stack the tortillas between sheets of non-stick baking parchment. Heat a griddle pan or large, heavy-based frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook 1 tortilla at a time for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned in places and puffed up. Serve warm.
