Mexican Crispy Tortilla Bowl.....


This recipe is excellent for any dinner party and can be served as a starter. The tortilla bowl is made out of whole wheat flour. The bowl is served with vegetables and kidney beans salsa. It is topped with cheese sauce and garnished with grated cheese. 

For making the Whole wheat Tortilla Bowl
Ingredients 
1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat flour 
3 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste 

Method 
Add oil and salt to the flour. Mix it well. Add water to make a semi hard dough. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes. Take a big mixing bowl. Grease the outer side of the bowl with oil and keep it upside down. Apply oil to the dough and roll out a big circle. Gently pick up the rolled dough and place it on the bowl properly. Cut the extra dough off. Place the bowl on the lower rack of the oven. Bake it at 180 degrees celcius for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Remove the bowl from the oven. Switch on the gas. On medium flame, hold the bowl at one end with a napkin and cook the outer covering of the tortilla from all the sides. This will give a roasted effect. Reduce the temperature to 150 degrees celcius and bake it till it becomes crispy and brown for  approximately 15 minutes . Remove it from the oven.  
P.S. You can use the remaining dough to make another small bowl.
