How to make tortilla

1.    In a bowl, mix flour, salt and oil and combine well. Then slowly add water and knead into smooth dough. You can add more water to achieve the desired consistency. Cover with a wet cloth and let rest for 20 minutes.
2.    Now divide the dough into 8 equal balls. Using a rolling pin roll out the balls, as you do a chapathi.
3.    Spray some oil onto a hot skillet and cook the tortillas over medium heat till slightly brown.

Method of preparation

1.    Blend cilantro, spring onions, garlic, green chilli/jalapeno, cumin powder, lemon juice and salt and pepper in a mixer and marinate the chicken strips in this for about 2 hours.
2.    Take the chicken strips out and fry them till brown. Keep aside.
3.    Sauté onion and peppers on high heat till tender. Add the fried chicken strips and sauté for 2 more minutes.
4.    Spread the mixture over the tortillas and top with shredded cheese. Wrap tightly.
