Let me just start by saying these tortillas have been in the recipe testing mode for quite some time now because keto version of the tortilla can get little tricky to prepare. All this time I was trying to get the same texture and softness as a real whole wheat tortilla, finally I believe its pretty close enough in texture and softness, hence I am sharing the recipe.
These almond flour tortillas are super soft & flavorful, low carb & gluten free, great on the go option, and makes delicious wraps, sandwiches, quesadillas, burritos. I love making variety of veggie tacos and serving my tortillas with indian curries.
My recipe makes 6 servings- 2 tortillas per serving. Makes total of 12 tortillas.
3/4 cups of blanched almond flour
1/3 cups mozzarella cheese
1 egg (If you don’t eat egg, just add one more tbsp of psyllium husk to replace the egg)
2 tbsp flax seed powder
3 tbsp psyllium husk
1 tsp salt
2-3 tbsp hot water to mix the dough
1-2 tbsp of oil
Ziplock- cut open on 3 sides
In a medium size bowl mix almond flour, flax seed powder, husk, salt. Mix thoroughly.
In another bowl heat the mozzarella cheese in microwave for 30-45 seconds, until the cheese is melted. Take it out of the microwave and mix it to the dry ingredients. Also at the same time, add your egg in there. Knead the dough until everything is uniform. Massage the dough for couple minutes. Once everything is uniform, take couple drops of oil and roll the dough. It shouldn’t stick to your fingers .
Heat your skillet on medium heat. Make 12 little balls from the dough, try to make them same size. Cut ziplock bag from 3 sides, coat inside with little oil. Place one ball at a time inside the ziplock and roll it, this will help you roll tortilla easily and won’t stick. Once rolled into desired thickness, peel and roast on the stove. Roast both sides and place it in the tortilla warmer. Do the same process with the rest of the balls.
Serve your warm tortilla with curries. You can also make tacos, burritos, quesadillas or enchiladas with them. Options are endless.
P.S. Your leftover tortillas can be placed in refrigerator inside ziplock bags. Warm them up inside damn paper cloth for 10 seconds prior eating.
After so many attempts I finally got this tortilla recipe which I think it’s close to the real tortilla. Please share your thoughts when you make them, I would appreciate it!
