DIRECTIONS

  • Mix flour, salt, cumin, and garlic together in a bowl.
  • Stir in water and oil.
  • Knead for 2-3 minutes, till dough is somewhat soft.
  • Let sit for 25-30 minutes in a warm draft-free place.
  • Divide dough into 4 balls and flatten each until 4-5 inches in diameter by hand or with a well-oiled rolling pin.
  • Heat a frying pan on high heat and place one flattened ball in the pan. Do NOT use oil in the pan.
  • When the dough becomes mostly translucent, flip it and cook the other side.
  • When both sides are slightly browned, remove from pan and immediately spread one side of the bread with margarine. Repeat with the other 3.
  • Serve hot.
