Servings 2


  • 1 3/4 cup Refined flour
  • 1 tsp Milk
  • 3 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Yeast Dissolved in water
  • 2 tbsp Yogurt
  • 3 tbsp Desi Ghee
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Sift the refined flour into a bowl and add salt. Add the sugar, yeast and yogurt and mix well.
  • Add two tablespoons ghee and knead well into a smooth dough by adding milk. Set aside the dough for fermentation.
  • Brush oil on the dough and divide it into equal portions and roll each portion into a ball. Roll out each ball of dough to a round shape that is thicker at the edges.
  • Using only your finger tips press lightly to make groves all around. Place the taftan on a baking tray and sprinkle sesame seeds on it.
  • Cook in the preheated oven or in a hot tandoor for 10- 12 minutes, basting with the remaining ghee once halfway through the cooking. Serve hot
