  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  2. Add yogurt and vegetable oil followed by water.
  3. Knead into a soft dough.
  4. Coat with oil and set aside to rest for 1 1/2 hours approx.
  5. Combine all ingredients listed below ‘GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE’. Set aside.
  6. Break dough into 2 pieces and roll each one out. Do not roll them too thin or thick.
  7. Place onto a pan or tawa over medium heat.
  8. Coat with the garlic butter sauce. Once you see bubbles forming, flip onto the other side and coat with the garlic butter. Leave it on the heat for 1-2 minutes.
