Place flour, yoghurt and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix in water, a little at a time, using your hands. Add just enough water to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. Knead lightly for 30 seconds, then place in a greased bowl, cover with a tea towel and set aside to rest for 1 hour. Preheat grill to maximum and place a cooling rack on a baking tray. Place under the grill to heat up. Flour your hands and divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll into balls, then roll out with a rolling pin to form oblong shapes about 20 cm long. Place breads on the hot cooling rack and grill for 30 seconds on each side until speckled with brown spots. Remove from the grill, brush with melted butter and serve with Indian food. Makes 8.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
