Purple Corn Flour Tortilla

The weather has been crazy around Seattle the last couple of weeks even more than you can imagine. Rain, sun, clouds, hail, wind, storms, all in one day. As soon as I saw a cloud free sky, I decided to make some tortillas out in the back yard.

This purple corn flour came from Culinary Collective.  According to CC website, Purple corn has a higher antioxidant capacity than blueberries!

I made tortillas by mixing it with some tapioca flour. The color came out so beautiful because even though the flour itself isn't that purple, once I mixed it with hot water the dough turned bright purple. They might look thick and hard, but the breads turned out soft and chewy.

I served the tortillas more like pita bread with some grilled chicken and yogurt sauce.
