Make a well into the flour, add all the ingredients and knead the dough until you have a cohesive mass.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 mins.
Roll the dough into almost paper-thin layers, cut them into rectangles and deep fry (or oven bake, or both) the rectangles for a few seconds, or until golden and crispy.
Dust with icing sugar and keep in an airtight container.
