  • Mix together the flour, boiling water and 1 tsp of oil.
  • Knead to form a firm dough.
  • Divide the dough into 2 and roll each portion into a long sausage.
  • Cut each sausage into 6 pieces, and press each piece into a flat circle.
  • Brush six of the twelve pancakes with the rest of the oil and place the other six on top.
  • Using a rolling pin roll each pancake sandwich into a 6-inch circle on a floured surface.
  • Heat an ungreased pan over a high heat, reduce the heat and add a pancake.
  • When small brown spots appear on the underside turn the pancake and cook until it starts to puff up with air bubbles.
  • Peel apart the two layers, and repeat the procedure for the remaining pancakes.
