the dough

2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 cup boiling water

TO MAKE THE DOUGH 1. Whisk together flour and salt. Slowly trickle in boiling water, stirring with a wooden spoon as you go. 2. When all the water has been added, stir a few more times to cool, then use your hands to bring the mixer together into one dough. 3. When the dough holds together, turn it out into a floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes, or until ball is elastic and surface is nearly smooth. 4. Place dough into a sealed container or plastic bag and let rest for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours. Then proceed as photos illustrate, next.

TIPS Alternatively, and more traditionally, you can roll out individual rounds by pinching off a tablespoon of dough one at a time. Either way, be sure to flour each round after forming so that they don't stick together.
