  • 500 gself-raising flour
  • 150 mlnatural yoghurt
  • 200 mlwater
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ tspnigella seeds
  • ½ tspcumin
  • 1heaped tsp methi (fenugreek seeds)



Resting time: 2 hours

Add spices to self-raising flour.

Add yoghurt to dry ingredients

Add water to mixture slowly. The mixture should be the consistency of pizza dough.

Knead the dough, cover and set aside for approximately 2 hours.

When you’re ready to eat, divide the dough into balls and roll out into discs roughly 3mm thick.

Heat cooking oil in a pan to 195°C.

When the oil is hot, gently lower the breads a few at a time into the oil and wait for the bread to ‘pop’ up – this should take around 30 seconds.
