Ingredients

Directions

Place the flour in a large shallow bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil and rub into it. Add water in a stream, first fast then slowly as the flour begins to adhere together. Gather the dough and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes, dusting with flour if it sticks. Brush with oil, cover and let dough rest for 15 minutes. To make the dough in the food processor, place flour and oil in the food processor. With the steel blade attached, machine running, add water in a thin stream through the feed tube. The flour will adhere together into a mass and a dough ball will form on the blades. Process for 1 minute, with on and off motion, to knead the dough. Carefully remove dough to a work surface. 

Roll dough into 12-inch long rope and cut into 12 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough into smooth balls. Or, alternatively, pinch off 1-inch round portions of dough from the whole and roll into a smooth ball. Dust the balls lightly to prevent sticking. Keep the rest of the dough covered with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Start heating the oil in a wok or a chicken fryer to 375 degrees. Working one at a time, pick up one ball, dust with flour and place on the work surface. Press firmly to flatten it, turning it once. Roll the patty into a thin round circle dusting often with flour to prevent sticking. Roll few breads the same way and keep them on the work board, covered, to prevent them from drying out. DO NOT STACK. Lift one bread and gently drop it in the hot oil. When the bread is puffed and the underside golden brown, turn with a slotted spoon and fry the other side. Take it out and drain briefly on paper towels. Repeat with the rest of the rolled bread the same way.
