  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • 1 cup maizemeal
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Extra flour for dusting
  1. Sift the maizemeal and flour into a bowl
  2. Make a well in the center and add the warm water
  3. Using a flat bladed knife, mix until combined and the dough comes away cleanly from the side of the bowl
  4. Cover the bowl and rest for 15 minutes
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 3 minutes until smooth
  6. Return the dough to the bowl, cover, and rest for a further 15 minutes
  7. Divide the dough into the required number of portions. Roll out the portions one-by-one until very thin (1mm). Set aside and repeat until all of the portions are rolled
