So we were invited over to a Canadian families house for a swim and bbq (as you do up here!). When Jewls (Canadian friend) was making tortilla at the bbq I asked what she was using and she said ‘cornflour and water’. I was so confused because I didn’t think that what I knew as cornflour would create the kind of consistency she got. And I was right because I got home and attempted to make tortilla’s with cornflour and water and it absolutely DID NOT WORK! How embarrassing that I even thought it could. Don’t try it. What an idiot!
So I made a call to Jewls and it turned out it was a SPECIAL corn flour that I needed. And I couldn’t find it at the supermarket – this was a health food shop find. But it was totally worth it. Apparently, you can get it on the internet, too. This flour, with water, makes a dough that you just roll out and then add to a dry hot pan and kazam! Dinner is served!
