• 1 1/4 cup of all purpose flour or a combination of: 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup of water


Add water (a little at a time) to form dough.

Dough should be very firm; not sticky or too soft.

May add spoonfuls of flour or water if needed to get the right consistency.

Dough is ready when mixture forms a ball and sides of the bowl is clean.

Let the dough rest for about 5 minutes, covered with a damp cloth, then divide into little even balls (about 8).

Prepare boiling water in a big pot (about 8 to 10 cups) with 2 teaspoons salt (or your taste), 1 clove of garlic, mashed and 1 teaspoon oil.

Flatten each ball in the palm of your hands and shape round edges with your fingers.

Drop them carefully into the boiling water and after a few minutes they will float to the top.

Stir them around and push them down a few times to make sure all sides are cooked.

They should be done in 10 to 12 minutes.
