Flaky moroccan Flatbread

Bread & Jam, Marrakech style
Rghaif is a classic, the light and flaky flatbread that is almost a flat crossiant.  A simple bread dough, a bit loose in texture, is rolled very thin, spread with a little olive oil, and then folded and folded. The technique is like making puff pastry, the dough is rolled out flat again, oiled lightly, folded and rolled once more. 
The bread becomes light and flaky, tearing apart into delectable layers.  The perfect breakfast with honey and jam, served with mint tea of course.
