1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup warm water

Add the beef bouillon cube, dissolved in water.
Bring to a boil and add the potatoes, salt, pepper, and cover.
Simmer over medium-low heat until the potatoes are tender. If necessary, increase the heat to reduce the broth.

Cover the dough and let rest for 30 minutes.
Drop the dough on a floured surface, divide it into 10 or 12 balls.
Cover to prevent from drying .
Brush a little oil on a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Lightly flour the work surface. Take a ball of dough, flatten it with the palm of the hand, turn it over and flatten again.
Roll out with a rolling pin and form a thin disk of 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
