Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, scatter the yeast over the warm water and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add the salt.
  3. While kneading constantly, gradually add 6 cups of flour and 2 tablespoons of oil until the dough is smooth and elastic. Continue to add more flour if the dough still sticks to your hands.
  4. Put the dough into a large, greased bowl and turn dough to grease all sides of it.
  5. Cover with a dry tea towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
  7. Punch dough down gently.
  8. Divide the dough into 24 equal portions and shape them each into smooth balls.
  9. Place on a floured surface and dust tops lightly with flour. Cover with a dry tea towel.
  10. Let rest undisturbed 15 minutes more.
  11. Roll out each ball into a 6-inch diameter circle.
  12. Place on greased baking sheets.
  13. Bake in 375-degree F oven for 10-12 minutes or until the bread puffs. Do not leave baking unattended.
  14. YUM!
