    • Combine the flour, ghee and salt, in a large bowl. Work the ghee into the flour with your fingers until the mixture resembles a coarse meal
    • Sprinkle water onto the crumbly dough and with your hands push the dough from the sides to the middle of the bowl to form a ball that holds together and is smooth
