2. On a light floured work surface,roll out one portion into a disc 6 inches in diameter. Brush the top

lightly with oil. Using a knife cut  a line from the centre to the edge. Lift one cut edge and roll it

around the circle to form a cone whose point is  at the centre of the disc . Place the pointed side

down and flatten the cone with your palm. Using a rolling pin ,roll out again into  a6- inch disc.

help make the bread puffy

and spoon 1 tsp oil all around the edges. As soon as brown spot appear all over the bottom ,flip

the bread and cook the other side, adding a little more oil if necessary. Remove from the heat.
