Other tips

- If you find the flour tortilla too difficult to make, you can buy it at many bakeries and major supermarkets.

- When making the dough, if it is dry and fragile, you need to add water and continue to knead until it meets the requirements. If the dough is too sticky, add cornstarch, wait for about 15 - 30 minutes.

- Before rolling, spread a layer of plastic bags or a layer of flour on your table so that when rolling, the flour tortilla will not stick to the wooden surface below.
