I love this recipe because it does not have yeast. Doesn’t take time for the dough to rise, tastes supper flaky and light. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

- Mix really well till all ingredients well combined and no lumps. ( you can use your hands )

- Once your dough is ready, cut the dough in 4th. Then take each piece and cut it in 3, Using your hand make a ball out of each piece.
