Knead until the dough is smooth and sticky, and then continue to knead 10 minutesuntil the dough becomes very smooth and very sticky. Add salt and knead again.
Cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place on 30 minutesto make the dough increase in volume.

Divide the dough into small pieces of approximately the same size. Roll into flat oval cakes and grease one side with oil, put parchment so that the cake does not stick together, and fold in half.
