Recipe For Tortilla Dough (makes 8 small tortillas)
- 1 cup masa flour (corn flour)
- 1 cup water
Gradually mix water into masa. If it feels sticky add a bit more masa, until you can shape it into a nice ball. If it seems crumbly add a bit of water. Shape dough into 8 balls. Use a sheet of wax paper in the tortilla press, fold the paper over the ball and press. Carefully transfer onto the palm of your hand and then onto a hot cast iron pan. Cook 5-10 secs per side.
