  • 600g/1lb 5oz self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 300g/10½oz Greek-style yogurt
  • 175ml/6fl oz lukewarm milk
  • 2 tsp sunflower oil
  • 4 tsp melted ghee or butter (or oil)


  1. Sift the flour into a bowl, make sure the bowl is large enough to add all the ingredients needed! Add the salt, sugar and baking powder and combine well or this may not work, then add the yogurt and mix together well. Gradually add the milk and knead to form a dough, not too often. Add the oil and knead in the bowl for 7 minutes. Cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave it in a warm place for 1 hour 30 minutes or less.

  2. Preheat the oven to  240C/220C Fan/Gas 9. Make sure to place an upside-down baking tray inside the oven too.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 balls, make them equal-sized or this may not work as well as you would hope for. Roll a dough ball out on a lightly floured work surface to a disc around 20cm/8in diameter. Place on the preheated baking tray and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush with the ghee and wrap in a clean tea towel so it stays soft and keeps warm. Repeat with all of the remaining dough balls. Serve warm.
