    • 2 – 2 1/2 cups flour
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 cup room temp water
    • 1/4-1/2 cup canola oil

Whisk together 2 cups of flour and salt. Slowly add in the water and knead until smooth. If dough is too sticky, gradually add in the remaining flour. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and form into balls. Lightly oil your hands and generously oil the balls of dough, making sure they are generously and evenly coated. Place each ball in its own small bowl, pouring in a bit of oil and turning to make sure it’s coated in oil. Cover each bowl with plastic wrap and let rest overnight.
