Method

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy-based pan (preferably cast iron) over a medium heat and sauté the onion for 2 minutes then add in garlic and spice mix, cook for a further 2 minutes.
  2. Add the turkey mince and fry for 5 minutes until the meat has changed colour. Add the drained tomatoes, allow to cook for another 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce.
  3. While the turkey is cooking, make the tortillas. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt and olive oil and give everything a whisk. Add 175ml warm water from the kettle then mix together with a fork until a dough starts to form. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until a soft dough ball forms. Wrap in cling film and rest on a warm counter for 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions and shape into small balls. Roll out into 7cm rounds using a sprinkle of flour to stop things from sticking. Heat a heavy-based cast iron pan over a medium heat, then add the tortillas and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
  5. To make the salsa, put all the ingredients in a bowl with a good pinch of salt and pepper and mix to combine.
  6. To serve, top each tortilla with turkey mince, salsa and a dollop of crème fraîche and mango chutney.

Tip: Store-bought wholemeal tortillas are a great substitute if you don’t fancy making your own. The leftover tomato juice from the plum tomatoes can be frozen in ice cube trays and used in other dishes.
