    85 g all-purpose flour
    320 g whole wheat bread flour
    70 g shortening
    8 g salt
    235 ml boiling water
    all-purpose flour for rolling


1. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, and salt.
Rub in the butter or shortening by hand until the mixture is the texture of oatmeal.
Make a well in the center, and pour in the boiling water. Mix with a fork until all of the water is evenly incorporated. Sprinkle with a bit of additional flour, and knead until the dough does not stick to your fingers. The dough should be smooth.
2. Make balls the size of golf balls. Place them on a tray, and cover with a cloth. Let stand for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
3. Heat a dry griddle or large frying pan over high heat. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a tortilla to your preferred thinness. If you have a tortilla press, split a large plastic bag and line the press.
Fry one at a time. Place on the griddle for 10 seconds, as soon as you see a bubble on the top, flip the tortilla over. Let it cook for about 30 seconds, then flip and cook the other side for another 30 seconds. Roll out the next tortilla while you wait for that one to cook. Repeat until all of the balls have been cooked. Tortillas can be refrigerated or frozen.
