This recipe of Mini Tortilla cups came from nowhere.I mean a sudden plan of my sons friends at home.And his heiness ordered some snacks.I went to the kitchen and scrolled down the list of available ingredients.I had mozzarella ,tomatoes and one capsicum and the regular onions.The first thing which comes to mind is pizza or pizza toasts.But incidentally there was no bread and no pizza dough,which i otherwise keep in store always.So, i thought of making fresh tortillas as base and then not making them as pizza,but since these were for my bunch of little monster guests ,i thought lets make tortilla cups.They will be filling, healthy (as i only make wholewheat ones) and inviting for the eyes.Simple tortillas,made of wholewheat,egg,salt, hint of sugar and milk.milk. Ooh…as a mother i feel so satisfied when i get to put something healthy on the table for kids.The verdict for the devil, Yummy….can i have some more please! Mummy happy and party successful,of course with some other accompaniments.So here is the recipe of the instant Mini Tortilla Cups,make them for kids or party snack or just a tea snack.You will surely love the compliments you’ll get.
Pr-heat the oven @ 250 degree Celsius on toast option.
Tortilla dough: Mix all ingredients in a bowl or food processor and knead it into a soft dough.Remember the softness should be like a chapati dough.Keep this dough in the refrigerator for about 5-6 minute.
How to make tortillas: Take out of the dough from the refrigerator and knead it softly to smoothen. Now, make medium sized rotis and cook on a tawa or pan on low flame till the tortillas just cook.Do not make them very thin as then they will loose softness.Do not over cook or cook like chapatis as we will need to cook them in the oven as well.We just need the tortillas to lightly cook .
How to make tortilla cups: Now, with a cookie cutter cut round shapes.Do measure the cookie cutter size with the muffin tray cups size.As we need to insert these circles in the muffin cups to cook.
Assembling and cooking: Place each of the tortilla circles in muffin tray cups.With a spoon spread tomato ketchup or pizza sauce on each circle.Place tomato slices one on each circle.Place some onions and capsicum ,salt,pepper and sprinkle some Italian seasoning.Now, cover each slice with grated cheese.
In the Oven :Put them in the oven on toasting option at 250 degree Celsius for 5-7 minutes or till there comes a golden brown color on the cheese.Garnish with basil leaf.Serve hot .
