Making your own tortillas is a great way to eat on a budget. They are really simple to make, cost pennies and make a little filling go a long way. This recipe uses a tasty keema lamb curry in a taco, Mexican street-food style.
Makes one portion (multiply ingredients for extra servings).
- 40g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
- 25ml cold water
- ½ red onion, sliced
- 75g minced lamb
- 1 tsp curry powder
- Small handful of spinach
- 1 tbsp yogurt (or crème fraîche)
- 1 spring onion, sliced lengthways
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Mix the flour and water in a bowl with a pinch of salt to form a dough. Knead on the work surface for a minute or two until you get a smooth dough. Cut it into three balls and roll each ball out into roughly 10cm circles.
- Heat a dry frying pan over a high heat, add a circle of dough and cook for 2 minutes on each side, until nicely toasted. Set to one side and repeat with the remaining dough.
- Pan-fry the onion in a splash of olive oil over a medium heat for a few minutes until softened, then add the lamb, season with salt and pepper, add the curry powder and cook for about 10 minutes.
- When the lamb is cooked, throw in the spinach and let it wilt.
- Now, assemble the tacos. Spoon some filling onto each taco, drizzle with yoghurt and top with spring onion.
