Soaked flour tortillas

I've made these two days running and the kids can't get enough of them! If you have any left over they freeze really well. Fat chance around here!

2 cups wholemeal flour (3 cups of freshly ground)
2-3 tbsp melted coconut oil or lard
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Knead for a few minutes until a soft but not sticky dough is formed. Put in a bowl covered with clingfilm and leave at room temperature for 12 - 24 hours.
Divide the dough into 8 - 10 pieces (about golf-ball sized pieces). Roll the pieces into balls, flatten with the palm of your hand and roll out on a flour dusted surface. Heat a cast iron frying pan to a medium/low heat. Fry the tortillas for a minute on one side and 30 seconds on the other.
