  • Place in a well greased bowl and let it rise in war, place for about 2 hours.
  • Divide into 8 balls.
  • Roll it into flatbreads of medium thickness. It shouldn't be too thin or too thick.
  • Place it on a hot griddle/skillet. Once you start seeing very small bubble on top of the bread, flip it.
