Gluten-free Homemade Tortillas Recipe

  • 55g gluten-free flour (preferably stone-ground)
  • 55g maize meal
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 240ml filtered water
  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
  2. Beat in the egg and water to form a fairly thin batter. Pour into a measuring jug.
  3. Dust a sheet of kitchen paper with flour on the work surface.
  4. Heat a small, non-stick heavy frying pan. Reduce the heat to moderate.
  5. Pour in 1/8 of the batter and lift the pan up to quickly swirl the batter around the pan to coat the base and a little way up the sides. Cook over a moderate heat until the edge of the tortillas begins to curl slightly. Flip over and quickly dry out the other side.
  6. Slide onto the kitchen paper and dust with a little more flour. Cover with a second sheet of kitchen paper to keep the tortilla soft.
  7. Repeat, reheating the pan slightly between each tortilla, and stirring the batter every time.
  8. These tortillas can be stored in an airtight container for a few days. They are also suitable for freezing.
