Sounds Mexican – right? It is Mexican, and boy its “easy peasy lemon squeezy” – my daughters favourite verse.
I had gone to Food Lovers Market a few days before, and I saw wheatflour tortillas on the shelf. Me being me, wanted to pick up that soft looking packet, but actually the price made me shrug – after all they were just rotis, I am not going to pay that money for them, just because they came all the way from God knows where. I dont even know if the stuff written on the Ingredients list actually went into that, and there sure are some stuff which is not actually healthy for my home. So I put back the packet as soon I had picked it up, determined to give it a try myself.
I like Mexican food for simple deep flavours, and colourful presentation. Tortillas are the base of a lot of mexican wraps, burritos, enchiladas, and I am promising you once you start making your own you will never ever go to store brought stuff.
