  • 300g/2 ⅓ cup plain flour
  • 200g/scant 1 cup plain yogurt full fat
  • ¾ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying


  • Mix the flour, yogurt, baking powder and salt and knead lightly until a dough forms. Cover with a tea towel and let it rest for 30 minutes.

  • If using self-rising flour, omit salt and baking powder.
