    11. To make flour paste: Slowly mix water into white flour until mixture reaches a thick, lump-free consistency.
    12. Make sure to mix well while adding water.
    13. Ensure there are very few lumps of flour left and do not add too much water.

    15. Take a flour tortilla and lightly toast in oven, till it is warm enough to fold in half and cut.
