You’ll need several heavy-duty sheets of plastic or flat plastic bags, such as Ziploc bags (as you would for rolling out corn tortillas), or else damp cheesecloth, as well as a large fine-mesh metal rack or a woven bamboo mat, or even a flat basket, for air-drying the disks.

These instructions produce disks that are about 3 inches in diameter, smaller than those sold in most markets, and therefore easier to shape and handle. Once you are comfortable with the process, you may want to work with a scant 2 tablespoons per disk and pat the paste out to a -inch disk (which will dry to a disk just under 4 inches across).
