Servings: 4

Prep Time: 10 Mins

Cooking Time: 15 Mins

Total Time: 25 Mins


  • 1kg white flour
  • 800 ml warm water
  • 4 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • salt and vegetable oil to adjust


  1. Rub melted butter into flour in a mixing bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs. To make a soft dough, gradually add the warm water. Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rest for at least 15 minutes.

  2. Divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll each one into a ball before rolling out into discs with a rolling pin.

  3. Brush the disc with melted butter and fold it in half to form a half-circle. Brush with melted butter once more and fold into a triangle.

  4. Make a flat layer out of the triangular shape.

  5. Grease a hot griddle or tava (frying pan), then place the rolled bread on it.

  6. Fry for about a minute on each side - it may be necessary to turn them over more frequently to ensure thorough cooking and avoid burning.

  7. Serve hot with butter or any other dishes.

  8. Enjoy!
