Instructions
  1. Measure the flour into a bowl and add the pinch of salt; mix.
  2. Slowly pour the boiling water into the flour, mixing with a pair of chopsticks.
  3. When a dough ball forms and is cool enough to handle, knead the dough for 8-10 minutes, or until smooth.
  4. Place the dough ball into an oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
  5. Roll the dough into a rope and divide into 12 equal pieces.
  6. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten into a disk.
  7. Brush six of the disks with canola oil and place a dry disk onto each.
  8. While you work, cover the disks to prevent them from drying out.
  9. Use a rolling pin to roll out each disk pair into an 8" round.
  10. Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  11. Place a rolled pancake into the pan and cook until air bubbles between the layers begin to form, about 45 seconds. The cooked side should have light brown spots.
  12. Flip and cook the other side for another 45 seconds. Remove to a warm bowl covered with a towel.
  13. When the pancake is cool enough to handle, separate the two layers.
