½ cup plain yogurt, at room temperature
½ cup milk, I used full fat
100g unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp baking powder,1 tsp salt,1 tbs sugar
2 ½ -3 cups all purpose flour , use as much as you need to make a soft, non sticky dough
For butter spread use 1-1½ tbs butter ghee (clarified butter, I have a YouTube tutorial for ghee)
2-3 tsp sugar, use more or less to taste
Note* I make my ghee with salted butter, if using regular unsalted ghee , sprinkle a pinch of salt to each bread layer before rolling
Combine all ingredients for the dough and knead a soft , non sticky dough, set aside to proof 35-45 minutes
Divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions and form smooth balls
Roll out each ball to 8”-9” diam. disc
Spread with ghee, sprinkle with sugar and salt
Roll into a log and twist a few times
Refer to YouTube tutorial for more details on rolling and forming the pastry bread
Preheat a griddle or nonstick skillet to 410°-420°F
Bake on each side 3-5 minutes or until golden color
Serve hot or warm
