1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

½ cup yogurt

1 tsp oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

Garnishing: 6 cloves garlic, and few mint and coriander/cilantro chopped fine ( just give a whiz in your food processor)

Sesame seeds/nigella seeds ( optional)


Make a soft dough.Cover the bowl  with a cling film and let rest for about 4 to 5 hours.

Divide the dough into 6 balls.
