  3. Divide into small balls the size of golf balls and proceed to roll out into size and thickness you prefer.
  4. Cook on top of stove over medium heat using a cast iron grill or heavy skillet until top is slightly bubbly then turning on opposite side for a minute or two.
  5. Keep stacked and warm inside a clean dish towel.
