You can probably find someone to make one or maybe if there are any restaurant equipment stores, they might have something? I use a brand called (Maseca)[[link]]
What have you been using to make them flat? I was using a pan to squish it, putting it between two books and sitting on it works too, but I found I also had to use a rolling pin to flatten them a tad more.
From complete scratch requires that you have or can make your own masa. I imagine that you will have trouble laying your hands on the ingredients in your local markets. You can order maseca (dried masa mix) online. With a little effort you can make passable tortillas with the mix. I recommend ordering a tortilla press too. Forming tortillas by hand is an art. You can rig something up but the press is the way to go. Once you've made the tortillas just cut them up and drop them in the fryer until they are crisp and you can have your chips and eat them too. ;)
For flour tortillas, this one looks pretty legit, and you probably already have all the ingredients. You can replace the shortening/lard with butter or other cooking fats, but be careful about introducing other flavors.
For corn tortillas, you'll need masa harina, which is a specially processed corn flour. Maseca is a good brand. You can just follow the recipe on the bag for good results (just add water!), although I like to add a little butter or shortening, maybe 1 tbsp per cup of masa. I'd refer back to that flour tortilla recipe for tips on rolling, cooking and storage.
Here are my favorites:
You can get very far by ordering a few things on Amazon (Guajillo, arbol, ancho peppers, anchiote paste, dried black beans, dried epazote, masa harina.)
Here’s a good tutorial. She uses Maseca instant masa, which is available on Amazon.ca.
Your masa must be really good. I posted mine here some time back one guy said that is shit. Lol. I had bought this. It doesn’t even say nixtamalised. Idk
This is what the arepa flour looks like: [link] I have only seen it in african grocery stores here. For masa harina for tortillas spanish amazon is a good bet. [link]
oh ya super easy with corn flour as well. Just need the flour and water.
This is it. I don't only care about the calories (heavy whipping cream is not great for you), but I'm also not obssessive about being healthy.
Does Psyllium Husk Powder in Keto Chow serve the same purpose as Masa in People Chow?
Haha you don't know the half of it!
Amazon.com Price - $10
Amazon.ca Price - $180
Of course that's just for shits and giggles for the exact same item. I can get a slightly different kind of corn flour, but it still works out to roughly 2x for most items I'm trying to buy. :(
You can buy masa for torillas on German Amazon, but good lord is it expensive!
Although I'm not sure what countries it's available in.
