  1. In a large bowl, slowly add the water to the flour stirring with a wooden spoon until a dough forms.

  5. Flour a surface. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Roll one of the pieces with a rolling pin until it is ⅛ inch thick.

  6. Pour 1 tablespoon of oil onto the rolled out dough. Spread it out. Salt generously. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of scallions and spread them out on top.
