Step 4: Heat a cup of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Let heat until hot. Put a wooden spoon into the oil, and if it starts to bubble around it, it is because it is at the right temperature. Reduce to medium-low heat.

Step 5: Pour the mixture in a very fine, thin line, rotating on all sides of the pan. You can make the form you want the most. Cook for two minutes or until lightly browned. Flip over and let it cook on the other side.
