  • 2 cups flour (260 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup water (175 grams)
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Then add the olive oil and whisk together with a fork, gradually add water and stir until the dough almost holds together.  Move to a lightly floured flat surface and gently knead about 10 times just until the dough comes together (the dough will be sticky, do not overknead).
  • Divide into 5 balls and flatten with the palm of your hand.  Fry in hot oil on medium heat (enough to cover the bottom of a medium frying pan), until golden brown on both sides (and cooked on the inside).  Drain on a paper towel lined plate and eat warm or at room temperature.  Enjoy!


 Do not cook on too high a heat or they will only cook on the outside.
