Ingredients4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
salt to taste
1 egg, beaten
6 Tblsp plain yogurt
3 Tblsp butter or ghee, melted
About 1 Cup milk
1 Tblsp poppy seeds
InstructionsSift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl. Stir in egg, yogurt and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Gradually stir in enough milk to make a soft dough. Cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm place for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C) (Note: I use even higher temp 500F and place a pizza stone in my oven)
Knead dough on a floured surface for 2 or 3 minutes until smooth.

Divide into 8 pieces Roll each piece into a ball then into ovals about 6 inches long.

If you must use a baking sheet, grease it and brush the underside of the bread with water. Brush the other side with butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds

Bake 6 to 10 minutes until puffy and golden brown. (This is where the stone makes a difference)
