  • 1 teaspoon fresh yeast
  • 150ml/5fl oz warm water
  • 200g/7oz plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon ghee or butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 50g/2oz unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  • Put the sugar and yeast in a small bowl or jug together with the warm
    water, and mix thoroughly until the yeast has completely dissolved. Set
    aside for 10 minutes.
  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, making a well in the centre. Add
    the ghee or butter and the salt, and pour in the yeast mixture. Mix
    thoroughly to form a dough, adding more water if required.
  • Place the dough on a floured work surface and knead until smooth.
    Return to the bowl, cover and set aside to rise for 11⁄2 hours.

    and knead for a further 2 minutes. Break off small balls and pat them
    into rounds about 12.5cm/5in in diameter and 1cm/1⁄2in thick.
  • Place the rounds on a greased sheet of foil, and grill for 7–10 minutes,
    turning twice and brushing with butter and sprinkling with poppy seeds.
