Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Sift together the flour and salt.
  2. Mix the yeast with ½ cup lukewarm water, and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix the ghee and sugar with the flour. Add the yoghurt and dissolved yeast or the baking soda. A little more lukewarm water may be added if necessary. Knead well until the dough becomes soft and pliable. Use a little oil to knead well.
  4. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside for 4 hours.
  5. Heat the ghee in a frying pan.
  6. Make the dough into small balls. Roll the balls out very thin.
  7. Deep fry the dough in hot ghee until golden brown. The dough should puff up a lot and develop a large airy pocket inside.
  8. Remove from the oil, and serve hot with channa or choley (chickpea curry).
