This is another one of those recipes that I tried to make home made for the first time. It all started when I realized that the ingredients list of the wraps we usually buy are sooo incredibly long and incomprehensible. That meant that it wasn’t healthy enough for us!
So I though I’d just try to make it myself and also save some money on the way. I had looked up the ingredients list, and it wasn’t too long. All I needed were 5 ingredients. Right from the start I already made a mistake, and then everything went down hill from there.
In the end I had super crispy wraps that were not what I had expected to make. But the tasted really good! Not as sour as the store bought ones often taste. Also along the way, I had found out, what I did wrong and learned so much from this adventure. That is why I love trying to make things home made.
What I should have done better:
- Since I used whole wheat flour, I should have accordingly added more water to the dough. This was my main problem. This is the reason why the wraps were crispy.
- I should have been more patient and let the pan heat up more in the beginning of making the wraps.
- 450g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 200ml warm water
- 5 tbsp olive oil
- Mix together the flour, salt and making powder. Then add the wet ingredients. Knead it, until it forms a smooth dough.
- Divide it into 16 even pieces, form them into balls and flatten them with the palm of your hand. Cover and let it rest for 15min.
- Roll them out as thin and even as possible and fry them in a pan on medium to high heat. Flip when you see slight bubbles forming and brown spots on the bottom side.
- Serve and wrap hot. To store for later use, let the wrap cool and freeze.
