  1. Add the 2 cups cold water to the dry ingredients and mix well
  2. Leave to stand 5 minutes
  3. Add 1 cup boiling water and mix vigorously. If batter looks too thick (must be thin, like a crepe to cook the way we're accustomed) add a little bit of water.
  4. Pour batter on a hot cast iron griddle (note: with no lard of any sort, this demands a 'well-seasoned' cast-iron)
  5. Let the ploye cook; you will see little holes open up, and the edges will start to curl-up. the more holes, the better your ploye
  6. When you see the mixture is not liquid any more, your ploye is done; you only cook it on one side
  7. To have really good ployes, you need to re-mix the batter between pours
