Well making the whole cheese burst pizza recipe took me more than a day first and in fact the First thing I went for was the Tortilla a day before for the sole reason I guess because they are really easy to make (‘’,) so here Is this simple recipe of homemade flour tortillas … (”,)

 

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THE RECIPE:

150 gms or 1 Cup All Purpose Flour / Maida

70 gms or 1/3 Cup Warm Water

¼ tsp Baking Powder

20 gms or 1.5 tbsp Vegetable Shortening (read note)*

10 gms or 1 tsp Sugar

6 gms or 2 tsp Milk Powder

½ tsp Salt

 

 

 INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THE RECIPE:

 

* NOTE : The question is “How Does Saturated Fat Affect After Cooking”

  1. Flavours : Most saturated fats have their own Flavours like Butter, Lard … etc
  2. Air : Saturated fats can be manipulated to with hold air, (usually by beating or creaming as done while making cakes), lightening frostings and batters.
  3. Shortens and Tenderises (MOST IMPORTANT) : Fats can interfere with the development of gluten network of proteins that is created when flour and water are combined and kneaded into dough. Without the addition of fats, gluten will form a long, rubbery like matrix, which is why bakers refer to adding fat to the mix as “shortening.” Solid fats also enable Flour more hydrated and also like vegetable shortening or lard, can actually be cut into flour for more flaky, tender results.

POINTS TO REMEMBER:

  • Use Saturated Fats 
  • Rest the dough wit a damn cloth in a warm place
  • Knead the dough for more than 10 minutes 
  • Use warm water

 

ALTERNATIVES OF VEGETABLE SHORTENING

  • Lard
  • Vanaspati Ghee (Indian shortening used mostly)
  • Clarified Butter / Desi Ghee 
  • Unsalted Butter
