 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3 1/3  cups          unbleached flour
    1      packet        dried yeast
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1      teaspoon      cumin seeds or poppy seeds
      2/3  cup           natural yogurt
    1      cup           warm water
    2      tablespoons   butter -- melted
                         extra flour, for rolling
                         oil, for cooking
 
 Sift flour into a big bowl.  Add the yeast and salt and stir in the
 seeds. Mix the yogurt, water and butter together and stir into the flour.
  Turn the dough out onto a floured board.  Knead for 5 minutes.  Put the
 dough back in the bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled
 in size.  (2 to 4 hours depending on the warmth of the room)  Punch down
 dough and knead for 1 minute.  Cut it into 8 equal pieces and roll each
 into a ball.  Sprinkle a little four on work surface and roll each ball
 out to an oval shape.  Heat a griddle or heavy based frying pan until
 quite hot, brush it lightly with some oil, and cook each bread for about
 3 minutes on each side.  Keep the breads warm, wrapped in a clean tea
 towel.
