The dough is shaped into a thin, round flatbread and then dried (traditionally in the sun) and can be cooked by frying, roasting over an open flame, toasting, or microwaving, depending on the desired texture. You can perk up the dough with the addition of seasonings like chili, cumin, garlic, or black pepper.
