  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 3 tsp. Sugar
  • 1 2/3 tbsp. Dried Yeast
  • cup Plain Yogurt
  • cup Butter
  • cup Water

  1. In a dish, take 5 tablespoons of water, add the yeast and a teaspoon of sugar and stir well. Set aside for 10-12 minutes. (You will see bubbles on the surface of the mixture which suggests that the yeast is allright).
  2. Add in the remaining water, sugar, yogurt, egg, butter, and salt. And stir well.
  3. Add the flour to this liquid and make it into a smooth, soft, and elastic dough. (This will take about 10-15 minutes). Take a warm bowl, butter all the sides and the bottom of the bowl then place the dough in the bowl, cover with a cloth and keep it in a warm place until the dough doubles in height (for about 40 minutes). Push a finger into the dough. If the impression remains, then it is ready to be baked.
  4. Make the dough into 8 equal balls, flatten them into circles with your fingers so that the edges are thicker than the center. Pull one end of the circle so that the dough circle now looks like a tear drop or a balloon in two dimensions. The length is about a handspan and width about a palm.
  5. Heat oven to 450F, and on a non-greased baking tray, place the dough. Bake for 10 minutes or until it gets golden brown.
