    3      c             white flour
    1      t             Salt
    1      c             Warm water
                         Vegetable oil
 
 Combine the flour and salt; stir in enough warm water so that the dough pulls a
 way from the sides of the bowl & is no longer sticky. Stir till smooth. Knead f
 or 5 minutes. Shape dough into rectangle & cut in half lengthwise.  Divide into
  12 portions and shape into smooth balls.  Cover with damp balls and let rest 5
  to 10 minutes.  Press each ball flat & roll into a 6 or 7 circle. Cover with
  damp towels. Lightly oil a griddle or skillet.  Gently stretch each  round as 
 thin as possible.  Cook until brown & bubbly spots appear on the bottom, about 
 90 seconds.  Turn over & brown the other side.  Remove from griddle and wrap im
 mediately in towels.
