    +Kateřina Wiesnerová – If you mean no oil in the pan – yes, that is
    correct. If you mean no oil in the batter – you need oil in the batter.

      +Jenny Can Cook You can use butter instead of oil.

      yes, you can use lard or vegetable oil or room temp butter if you prefer. i
      always prefer veggie shortening. also, ive found the baking powder is not
      necessary. it brings a slight back-end bitter taste to the torts and they
      puff up just fine without it. food for thought. (pun intended 🙂

      Though a little ironic that she shuns saturated fat in the tortilla
      batter… only to put saturated fat on the outside.

      +Jamal Ross Do people butter tortillas like bread to eat? That sounds kinda
      disgusting tbh.

      +XxKitty LoverxX There’s a lot of things that sound disgusting but taste
      great, i’m not doubting it, but just butter sounds a little weird.

      Am I the only one that caught the reason for that reference? That comes
      from Lefsa. And with Lefsa you use butter and optional jam. It’s similar to
      a tortilla but Norwegian and came into this country with early immigrants.

    Just a comment on your heart healthy Canola oil. I stop using it and went
    to Coconut and Olive oil to improve my health and I’ve lost 120 lbs so far
    without exercise. The fat that plugs up your arteries isn’t saturated fat
    but fats that come from Canola oil and other vegetable oils. What people
    don’t know is your cells are made up of saturated fats. Also, my kids have
    lost 20 lbs each as well! Just saying!

      I read up about what you said and I agree canola oil is probably oxidised
      because of the heated ‘deoderisation’ process and probably has increased
      cancinogens because of that. At the same time it’s been proven to be good
      for your heart and contains the same calories per gram as extra virgin
      olive oil

    • just me

      October 12, 2016 at 2:00 pm

      If you understand how canola oil is made and what it actually is, you would
      use coconut oil. Remember Dr.s used to recommend smoking and drinking as
      healthy. So be careful what advice you get from the people (insert doctors
      here) being paid to push Big-Pharma on people.

      John Flores Congratulations on your weight-loss I will try to use coconut
      oil I recently bought some because they said it has a lot of medicinal
      purposes and you can cook with it in different variations. Thank you for
      the suggestion

    • John Flores

      October 26, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      E Wootson, thanks for the comment! I just keep away from veggie oils,
      switched to agave base desserts, and staying under 2000 calories. Good luck
      in your health endeavor.

      and no sugar! that s the main poison

    Canola oil is unhealthy and olive oil should never be heated!

    • missthunderstormable

      December 10, 2016 at 12:10 am

      coconut oil?

    • Uli Martin

      December 10, 2016 at 12:24 am

      missthunderstormable I’m glad you ask – coconut oil has a high heat point
      and is ideal for use with cooking and frying. It is the best and healthiest
      oil to use .
      It’s not only the best to use for cooking but also for skin care, hair
      care, etc. – check YouTube for the many uses of coconut oil.
      I like Jenny’s recipe – but not her choice of oil.

    • missthunderstormable

      December 10, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      yeah, I use it, and it has a wonderful taste! 🙂

    its call “Roti” in india ……..its our everyday food ……..every woman
    do it ………twice a day 😀 …….. nice work :D

    • Eve's Girls

      October 1, 2016 at 7:35 pm

      Yes but Roti tastes different tortillas are more chewy and less flaky.

    • Kay Joy

      October 6, 2016 at 8:12 pm

      There are diff kinds of roti. Chapati is the same as tortilla. Paratha roti
      is flakey.

      English speaking folk call it flatbread, none of those jonny foreigner
      words and men can make them as well as our respected women.

    Jenny, I did this and they came out perfect just like my grandmother used
    to make when I was a kid. Do you have a salsa recipie you can share? Rock

    Can I just say thanks a million for this recipe? My tortillas/ roti/
    whatever you call it went well for once.I’ve tried following other recipes
    and ended up adding flour because my rolled out tortilla ends up stuck to
    my makeshift rolling pin (the ketchup bottle usually).In the end,the result
    is a partially torn shell with thicker partially cooked lumps of flour.When
    I used your recipe,though I accidentally added an extra quarter cup flour,
    I had no issues with the dough tearing up or sticking to the surface it was
    rolled out on.Well the actual rolling pin helped

    my tortillas do not bubble and im using 2 cups flour and 1 tsp baking

    • Jenny Can Cook

      November 4, 2016 at 2:15 am

      I suggest following the recipe exactly and use a very hot, ungreased cast
      iron pan.

    • Raquel Garza

      November 4, 2016 at 3:20 am

      Ill try your recipe next so tired of the hard non bubbly tortillas

    • Mrssea Sea

      November 5, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      A HOT pan is needed to produce the bubbles your wanting!

      Baking powder is the problem. Make it this way: 1 cup flour. 1/2 tsp salt.
      2 Tbsp lard/oil and 1/4 cup water. It’s a dry dough. Let rest 1 hr.
      Guaranteed to rise.

    you’re doing well.
