Spread a sheet of parchment paper on the table, place the dough on top and divide the dough into 2 parts. Roll out each portion of the dough and cut it into a circle.

Step 5: Fry the tacos

Put 1 teaspoon of cooking oil in the pan, then put the cake in, cover it for about 2 minutes, then turn the side of the cake to continue frying for another 2 minutes.
