How to make it
- Take luke warm water in a cup, dissolve yeast and sugar in it and keep it aside.
- Allow it to rise. It normally takes only about 5-10 minutes to rise well.
- Sift flour and salt into a bowl and add yeast- sugar mixture, yogurt and half of the ghee into it.
- Mix together to form a smooth dough. Again knead it on a flat surface to make it more smoother.
- Then it has to be kept in a greased, covered bowl (preferably in a warm place,may be inside the cooking range) and allow it to stand for almost 1 hr,by which the dough will be sized double.
- Knead the dough for 5 more minutes by punching it down.
- Divide into lemon sized balls. Flatten (extreme) each ball using hand,and add the toppings.
- Now heat a skillet (I didn’t have a grill pan, so I used a skillet) on the stove top.Grease it with oil and wipe it off with a cloth or kitchen tissue.
- Place the flattened dough on it, and cook it on medium heat.
- Within few minutes, it will puff up, then apply ghee/melted butter on 2 -3 spots and turn it over.
- Cook for few more minutes and remove. Immediately wrap it in a kitchen towel.
- Serve hot.
- Best side dishes: Paneer Butter Masala (Paneer Butter Masala) or Butter Chicken Masala (Butter Chicken Masala)
