Step 2: Stir all the ingredients finely so that they are all well-combined. 

Step 3: In batches, add 1 ½ cup of warm water, and with a spatula or wooden spoon, mix them continuously until the dough comes together. You can use hands afterwards. The dough can be sticky, moist, and soft as well. 

Step 4: With plastic wrap, cover the dough, and let it sit for 60 minutes. All lakota recipes don’t require any type of yeast, and that’s the best part of it. 

Step 6: After 1 hour, uncover the bowl, and divide it into 12 even pieces. Try to keep all of them equal. 

Step 7: Stretch each of the pieces out until they are very thin. But don’t let them to rip. The shape may not be all same but it’s okay. 

Step 8: Add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil or any other cooking oil for frying. Bring the oil warm up to high heat.
