  1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. With a wooden spoon stir in sugar, yoghurt, warm water and ghee to make a smooth dough. Grease your palms with oil and continue kneading until the dough becomes pliable (about 5 minutes). Cover dough with a moist cloth and set aside for 2 hours.
  2. Divide the dough into 12 balls. Roll each out into a disk of about 10cm diameter.
  3. Heat oil in a wok. Fry each disk until it puffs up, then turn and fry the other side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain the excess oil on paper kitchen towels. Serve hot.
