  3. Meanwhile, place the almond flour, cumin, salt, and mozzarella in the top part of the double boiler. Stir together. 
  4. Stirring the mixture constantly, heat until the mozzarella cheese melts and the mixture forms a dough.
  5. Turn the dough out onto one of the pieces of parchment and knead a few times to equally distribute the ingredients. Shape the dough into a small bowls (peda) and make a roti out of it.
