4. Divide the dough into small balls, flatten them with your hands giving them a rounded shape and ½ centimeter thick.

Secrets to be considered

If the fat is new, it may exude a strong odor. To avoid this, you can add some lemon peel to the fat.
Remember also that the fat must be very hot during the frying process so that the dough does not become so greasy.
