Step 1

Add flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and lard in a bowl

Step 2

Mix together with your fingers until crumb like texture is formed. Add the water(and milk), half of the content at a time and mix together until you form a smooth dough

Step 3

Transfer the dough unto a worktop and knead for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 4

Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a cling film or kitchen towel for about 20 to 30 minutes

Step 5

Transfer the dough to the worktop and divide into 6 or 8 balls and leave them to rest for another 10 minutes before you proceed to cook them

Step 6

Place a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat

Step 7

Lightly dust the worktop with flour and roll the dough till its flattened. Do this one at a time (do not roll all the dough at once or it will get soggy and difficult to work with)

Step 8

Place the rolled dough on the frying pan and cook for about a minute, you will notice some bubbles on the surface, cook until slightly brown but not burnt.

Step 9

Flip to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds. Take it off the heat and place in an airtight container/oven/microwave. This stops the tortilla from drying out and will keep warm till you are ready to use it. Serve shawarma immediately.
