Mix all dry ingredients in one of the mixing containers. Stir well and scrape the bottom and edges of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are combined. This prevents some pieces of bread from being more salted than others.
Fat or vegetable fat melts. You can do this in a bowl in the microwave or in a pan on the stove over medium heat.
Allow pork or vegetable fat to cool slightly.
Take a bath or "good" on dry materials.
Pour melted lard or vegetable fat into the well you made on dry materials.
Mix dry ingredients and lard together.
Add about 3/4 of the water. Stir until the mixture is firmly held. The mixture should have the consistency of a thick bread dough and should not be sticky. If the mixture is too thick or does not hold well, add more water. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour. Stir the dough as little as possible to get a light, airy bread.
Preheat the pan and add a tablespoon of lard or vegetable fat. The rule or olive oil may be replaced.
Peel some of the dough and form a flat, thick slice. It should look like a thick tortilla. Add to pan and fry for about five minutes or until brown. Turn around and cook on the other side.
Repeat step 9 until you have used all your dough.
