Serves 4 to 6

What You Need:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Vegetable oil

What You Do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in water well to form a soft (but not sticky) dough.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat a thin layer of oil. On a work surface, divide dough into 6 to 8 pieces and then flatten to form patties.
