Viral TikTok Tortilla Wrap Recipe That My Family LOVED

ayeeee loveeee iiit!!!!!

Backstory:

The viral tortilla wrap emerged like a CRAZY trend out of TikTok and IG and man it looked sooo good! And like all viral food trends, I just HAD to try it. Some people said it wasn’t good, and chalky and floury (and I’m guessing it’s coz they used readymade tortilla?). So I tried to make my own tortillas (out of all-purpose flour/maida as I didn’t have cornmeal) It came out SOOOO GOOOOOD!! You need about 2-3 of these to be happily fed. My whole family loved it so much and it’s fairly simple to make so enjoy!!

You Need:

For the wrap: (makes 10)

  • 2½  cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • ¾ cup water (room temp)

For the filling: 

  • 2 small onions, sliced (or 1 large)
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced (or 1 large)
  • 1 capsicum 
  • Ketchup 
  • Aloo tikki/meat cutlet
  • Cheese slices 
  • 1 tbsp butter (for frying)

Optional additions:

  • Jalapenos
  • Olives
  • Hot sauce
  • Mayo
  • Green chutney
  • Baked beans

How To: 

  1. Sift flour, baking powder together into a big bowl.
  2. Add salt, oil and water and mix it well
  3. If it’s too sticky, add some more maida and knead it until it forms a well-shaped ball
  4. Let it rest for 15 minutes 
  5. While that’s resting, slice your veggies and keep your condiments/sauces ready
  6. Divide your dough into 10 balls and keep them at the side
  7. Put some flour on a flat surface/rolling board and roll out your tortillas – the bigger and thinner the better
  8. Heat a flat pan with some oil (make sure it covers the entire surface so the tortilla doesn’t stick to the pan)
  9. Fry your tortilla until slightly golden brown on both sides (don’t fry it too much coz you gotta fry it up again)
  10. After it cools a bit, make a half cut at the bottom of the tortilla
  11. Put 4 portions of meat/protein, sauce, veggies and cheese and fold it over as shown in the video
  12. Heat a pan with butter, and fry the tortilla on both sides until golden brown and crispy. Enjoy!

Tips:

  1. Make the tortillas as thin as possible. If you make it too thick, it will be hard to fold it properly and all the filling falls out
  2. Make sure you have nice hot butter on the pan for that crispy crunch on the outside, otherwise it will get soggy
  3. You can sub the maida for wheat flour/atta but it won’t be as soft as the maida one, but definitely will be healthier
