Things You Will Need

1. Roller pin and board / tortilla maker

5. Serve the corn tortillas fresh with any topping of your choice.

Editors Review

If you're interested in making corn tortillas then check this out. Chef Bhavna shows us how to make it very nicely and patiently. It's not that difficult but very interesting to make as we normally buy it from the store. You should try making it. But before trying it, do watch the video.
