I shared this recipe on Instagram & Facebook after making up a batch one evening and was surprised by how many people hadn’t realised just how easy they are to make so I’m sharing it here on the blog for future reference for everybody. You need minimal equipment and absolutely no cooking skills to make these wraps, and both the dough and cooked wraps freeze really well so bulk make and pop the extras in the freezer so you never have to buy shop made again.
- 1 cup / 128g plain flour (you can substitute for wholemeal flour or do half and half if you prefer)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sunflower or rapeseed oil
- 1/2 cup / 120ml warm water
- Combine the flour and salt
- Add the oil and then slowly add the water
- Combine all ingredients until it forms a ball. If it’s too sticky, add more flour. If it’s too dry, add more water
- Split the dough in to 6 equal sized balls
- Flour your work surface and one by one roll the balls out in to flat circles
- Heat a flat-bottomed pan until it’s really hot
- Cook the wraps for around 3 minutes on each side (use a dry pan, don’t add any oil)
Making it gluten-free
You can make this with gluten-free plain flour but you’ll need to add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum to get it to bind properly and so you can roll them out (gluten normally makes dough stretchy).
You can spice these up with dried chilli, add crushed or dried garlic, give them a nutrient boost with a spoonful of seeds – whatever you like! The power of a good, simple recipe is learning to adapt it to suit your needs.
