1In a large bowl mix together the flour and salt.
2Combine the oil and the egg, beat together lightly. Stir in to the flour and salt. It will not combine well, but keep stirring and working at it until you have a coarse meal, like biscuit dough would be before you added the liquid.
3Pour your hot water in to the flour and egg mixture, all at once. Immediately start stirring. It won't look like it is coming together, but keep stirring it. Don't beat the crap out of it, but stir for a minute or two and it will come together into a somewhat lumpy, ugly dough.
4Cover with a damp tea towel or loosely cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 15 minutes, if not 30.
