  1. In a mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients. 
  2. Add the oil and just enough of the warm water to form a dough. 
  3. Add more cornmeal and flour if too sticky, or more water if too dry.
  4. Use dough immediately or let rest for up to one day before use (keep in bowl covered and kept in fridge).
  5. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts, flatten with you hands to a, roughly, 4″ circle.
  6. In a skillet, or on a griddle,  set to medium heat fry each flatbread in oil till golden on both sides – about 4-5 minutes.
