Prepare The Dough

  • In a large bowl. Add the flour.
    Create a well and add in the oil and half of the water. Mix until just combined.
    Add the remaining water and use your hand to knead the dough. The dough should be wet enough where all of the flour incorporated, but dry enough where it does not stick to your hand.

  • Roll the dough in a small log. Then cut the dough into 4 even pieces. 
    Taking each piece, flatten the dough. Use a rolling pin to make it easier.
