CASSAVA FLOUR TORTILLAS
To make these tortillas, all you need is a large mixing bowl and a non-stick pan or griddle. But to make the process even more efficient, I highly recommend getting a tortilla press. Your tortillas will turn out more evenly sized – in diameter and thickness. Otherwise, the rest is as easy as they come!
Make the initial dough. First, mix the cassava flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Then pour in the oil and knead the dry ingredients for about one minute. Note that the mixture will be dry and crumbly!
Finalize the dough. Add warm water into the mix and knead everything together for 2 to 3 minutes. It will be a bit sticky at first, but it will slowly thicken as the cassava flour absorbs the moisture.
Roll out the dough. Roll the dough into a log shape and slice it into 6 even pieces. Then roll each piece into a ball.
Cook them up! Heat up a non-stick pan and cook a tortilla on one side for one minute. Then flip the tortilla, cook for an additional minute, and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat the process for the rest of the tortillas.
And there you go!
