    Somehow I knew that 6 cups of flour and 300 mL of water was not going to work. That is way too much flour. So when I made this recipe I used 3 cups of flour and all the other ingredients remain the same. This recipe turned out fantastic. So I think you might have made an error with the 6 cups of flour. These are a delicious lunch or dinner and I will definitely be making these again. Thank you the recipe.
