By ali eletre

  • Ingredient:

  • 1 kg best quality flour

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup ghee or melted butter

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • salt

  1. Instructions:

  2. Cream yeast with sugar in warm water and leave to bubble in warm place. Sift flour with salt and add years and enough water to form a soft dough. Kneed thoroughly, beating to allow plenty of air to penetrate the dough.

  3. Cut up the dough into balls the size of small marbles. Combine ghee or melted butter with oil. Take on ball at a time, dip fingertips in oil mixture and spread dough thinly by and on smooth, greased surface. Re-roll and spread again 2-3 times, moistening fingers in oil each time. Flatten out into squares on greased tin and allow to rise for about one hour before using.
