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. Or even better just used plain white flour mixed with a little whole grain flour. 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.
- Fry them on high heat and don’t leave them in the pan for too long, which is also why they turned out crispy.
- 450g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 200ml warm water
- 5 tbsp olive oil
- Mix together the flour, salt and baking 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. (don’t leave them in the pan too long or else they will be hard and crispy. Fry them for a short period of time on high heat)
- Serve and wrap hot. To store for later use, let the wrap cool and freeze.
