Slovak Lokshe (makes about 15 tortillas, medium size)
1kg(2lb) boiled old potatoes, peeled and finely grated
400grams(2 1/2 cups) flour
Wash potatoes, boil them in salted water. Add about 1tbl white vinegar to the water. Boil until fork tender but not overly soft.
Drain the liquid. Let potatoes cool. Cover and let rest overnight in the fridge.
Peel the potatoes. Grate them on a fine grater. Add salt to the flour and then add potatoes. Using your hands, knead until dough is formed.
Divide dough into 2 halves. From a log from one half, cut it up into even rounds.
Dust the surface with flour, press the cut sides into the flour to prevent sticking. Using a rolling pin roll it out to the size of your cast iron pan.
Cook on medium heat using cast iron pan. When air pockets form, puncture them with the fork. Cook about 4 minutes on each side.
Serve as desired. Filled with jam, sugar, different filing, chicken etc.
Can be stored unfilled, covered tightly in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave.
