Pour water into the bowl with flour, salt and oil.

With a fork, mix together until a dough ball starts to form.

Wash hands… Use your hands, and knead just until a dough ball forms.
The latter stated takes only a minute or two.

Have available a cutting board, and place the dough ball on it.

Click HERE (or, refer to the graphic that’s shown below) for Dianne’s favorite cutting board, and this is the one she owns. In fact, she loves it so much that she owns two of these boards!

Click HERE (or, refer to the graphic that’s shown below) for the top-notch mineral oil that Dianne uses to treat/care for her cutting board.

Use a chef’s knife, and slice the dough ball into what looks like 5 equal portions.

If you desire, weigh each piece to 2¼ ounces.

Have handy a small bowl full of filtered/purified water.
This bowl of filtered/purified water is so you can moisten your fingertips as you form each flatbread.

Take a portion of dough, and use your fingertips to flatten the dough.
As often as necessary, dip your fingertips into the bowl of filtered/purified water. Doing the latter stated will make easier the task of flattening the dough.
Begin from the center of the dough, and move your fingertips outward as you continue to flatten the dough.
The goal is to flatten each portion of dough into a circular shape that’s 1/8 inch thick.

In a dry, very hot skillet… cook each flatbread until the desired texture has been reached.
Once you suspect the skillet is hot enough, place a few drops of water into the skillet.
If the skillet is hot enough, the drops of water will dance.

To store, put flatbreads into a container and refrigerate them.
