Cooking fresh cakes in a pan:
Step 1: prepare the flour.
A very important and responsible action is the preparation of flour! After all, how delicious the cakes turn out to depend on this component. Therefore, so that the dough becomes tender and without lumps, be sure to pour the flour into a sieve and sift it over a medium bowl. In the process, the component will be saturated with oxygen, so the dough will become tasty and slightly airy.
Step 2: prepare the dough for the tortillas.
Pour into a large bowl 1/2 part sifted flour, as well as salt. In the center we make a small indentation with clean fingers and pour clean cool water here. Knead the dough, constantly adding flour.
We do this until the mass becomes steep, elastic and, of course, does not stop sticking to the hands. At the end we give the test the shape of a ball and cover it with a clean medium bowl. Let it stand about 30 minutes aside.
Step 3: prepare unleavened cakes in a pan.
When the dough rests, we take it out and transfer it from the bowl onto a cutting board, lightly sprinkled with flour. Using a knife, cut the ball into four parts.
Then, in turn, with clean hands, we form a ball from each piece of dough, put it on the kitchen table, crushed with a small amount of flour, and use a rolling pin to roll it into a thin cake about a thickness 0.2 centimeters. Attention: the diameter of the circle should be approximately the same as that of the pan. I have 26 centimeters.
Now put the pan on a big fire and let it heat. Immediately after that, spread the cakes here in turn and fry on both sides for 30-40 seconds. Important: pay attention to the color of the dough - it should be browned and covered with golden bubbles. We lay the finished cakes with a wooden spatula on top of each other on a large flat plate and we can invite everyone to the dining table.
Step 4: serve unleavened cakes in a pan.
Still warm cakes are served at the dining table along with various dishes. For example, they are good for dinner instead of bread.
Also in such cakes you can wrap shredded vegetables, fried meat, season with any sauce and treat friends and relatives with a sort of shawarma. It turns out very tasty and satisfying!
Bon appetit to all!
