This easy two ingredient savoury scroll recipe is ideal for school lunch box boxes, and can be easily adapted to a huge range of different flavours!

Lunchbox scrolls for kids school lunches

Two ingredients is really all you need to create this easy and super yummy base for your savoury scrolls. Whether you’re wanting to make fresh scrolls for breakfast, afternoon snacks or school lunch boxes, this is a really fast and easy recipe. All you’ll need is equal parts self raising flour and greek yoghurt… yep, that’s it!

simple two ingredient recipe

Mix ingredients together into a bowl to create dough – I add a little more flour if the mix is too sticky – then simply roll out onto a floured flat surface. I have used a mat, but you can do it direct on your bench if you wish.

savoury scroll dough wth ham

These are so good fresh and the kids usually eat them all up! This is why I usually make a double batch and freeze the second batch ready to be added to school lunchboxes.

Ham cheese and spinach savoury scrolls

My family’s favourite fillings are pickles, ham, spinach and cheese (pictured above), and also the pizza sauce salami, spinach and cheese (pictured below).

Then roll up and slice into 2 cm thick segments, and bake on baking tray until golden (approximately 15-18 minutes).

Do these freeze nicely?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 30, 2015 - 8:18 PM

Yes absolutely, I place them frozen into the kids lunchboxes. This particular recipe isn’t as good as it would be fresh, but still freezeable.

Rachel February 7, 2015 - 11:48 AM

Why Greek yoghurt?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 9, 2015 - 9:14 AM

Rachel, you could use other yoghurts. I simply like the taste of greek yoghurt. Someone also mentioned that you could use cream too.

Mary May 29, 2017 - 4:38 PM

So cream in equal amount as the youghert ?

Jacky McLeod July 17, 2021 - 7:12 PM

I didn’t have enough yogurt so I topped up with sour cream …. Still yummy

Debbie February 6, 2015 - 2:57 PM


Ellen July 5, 2019 - 2:31 PM

Chive, cheese and garlic.

Elizabeth M. Dodge January 30, 2015 - 2:15 PM

This looks yummy and easy. My fav combo. Just a question, what is self raising flour?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 30, 2015 - 4:37 PM

Hi Elixabeth, usually in the US you would use plain flour, salt and baking powder.

Elizabeth February 6, 2015 - 4:17 PM

Thanks Katrina. I Googled it to get the ratio.

sarah January 30, 2015 - 3:20 PM

Can these be made with gluten free flour?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 30, 2015 - 4:26 PM

Hi Sarah, I haven’t tried with Gluten free flour, but hopefully somebody that has may comment and let you know how they went 🙂

Michelle January 30, 2015 - 9:09 PM

The face book comments suggest gluten free self raising flour works well. I’m going to try it when i get some lactose free yogurt lol

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 30, 2015 - 9:46 PM

Thank you Michelle 🙂

Gillian September 11, 2015 - 7:15 AM

I made these with Gluten Free SR flour and they worked well. Stickier dough so I added some extra flour.

Karena February 7, 2015 - 11:52 AM

My mum has made these for years, the recipe is in Cookery the Australian Way. It uses a scone dough as the base which would solve problems for any LACTOSE FREE people. As a sweet treat, one of its toppings is brown sugar and butter which makes caramel scrolls.

Idell Wadley December 10, 2018 - 8:28 AM

I am going to try this wit GF flour and coconut yoghurt. We shall see how it goes. Using up my left over ham from Xmas to make them.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife December 11, 2018 - 9:01 AM

ooh let us know how it goes!

Julie February 11, 2015 - 10:52 AM

yes. I made them gf. I just upped the flour to 350g. The 1st time they were a bit damp. And extra flour when you roll out.

Carol January 31, 2016 - 3:15 PM

Hi Sarah,
Yes these can be made with gluten free flour and will taste the same, the only difference is that the flour doesn’t brown, it generally stays white.

Giannis February 14, 2018 - 6:56 AM

Hi Carol

Try and add a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to the flour. Should make it brown loke normal flour.

Idell Wadley December 10, 2018 - 8:29 AM

I’m going to add some soaked polenta to the mix to give it more colour

Karen January 10, 2021 - 1:17 PM

Hi, I make these gluten and dairy free . I just switch the flour to g/f self raising cup for cup flour and use coconut yoghurt and plant based cheese. Granddaughter loves them.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 18, 2021 - 2:45 PM

What great substitutes Karen!

Beelzebubba January 30, 2015 - 8:34 PM

Can you use low fat Greek yogurt or openly full fat?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 30, 2015 - 9:48 PM

I’ve only ever used the yoghurt pictured, but I can’t see why not.

caz February 1, 2015 - 1:48 PM

Would coconut or almond flour work?

Prue January 31, 2015 - 7:03 AM

What a fab recipe. I’m going to try some sweet scrolls with this recipe too. I’ll just add a little sugar to the base then some apple, brown sugar and cinnamon to the center, the sweet possibilities are endless too! Choc chips, jam, dried fruit etc would all work I think!

suzie January 31, 2015 - 10:20 AM

I make these gluten free for my daughter easy school lunch she also love cheesymite ones

Deborah January 31, 2015 - 10:43 AM

I have used this dough recipe for quick and easy midweek pizzas for a while now. The kids love it as does my husband.

Larissa February 2, 2015 - 11:40 AM

It’s an awesome dough recipe isn’t it? I’ve used it pretty much since it turned up on Kidspot. Also Gourmet Girlfriend did a version with plain flour to make Gozleme, also super YUM!

donna January 31, 2015 - 12:13 PM

I’ve just made a sweet version with quinoa flour, coconut sugar, butter and cinnamon. Kids loved them

Lisa February 15, 2016 - 10:37 PM

Did you make the quinoa flour self raising by adding any other ingredients?

Gemma January 31, 2015 - 12:59 PM

hi Kat
My daughter is lactose free could you use lactose free yogurt??

Helen January 31, 2015 - 4:49 PM

Delish and SO easy! I made with ham, cheese and carrot – for my sandwich loathing 8 yr old son’s lunch box. Thumbs up!

Mel February 1, 2015 - 7:36 AM

Can natural unsweetened yoghurt be used instead of Greek?

Tricia February 1, 2015 - 9:57 AM

These are brilliant! I had inadvertently purchased some sweetened greek yoghurt and this was a great way of using it up. Apple, Cinnamon & Sugar and Jam made two great variety of treats for morning tea!

Virginia February 1, 2015 - 2:32 PM

I use this same recipe for a quick last minute pizza base! My son also taught a group of friends at university how to eat on the cheap!

Theresa Davies February 1, 2015 - 4:08 PM

Just made a batch of these for school lunch boxes. Mu husband keeps pinching them and his comment was “these are really good” and my kids agree. Glad I came across your blog….just love it and all the ideas.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 2, 2015 - 9:18 AM

Ooh yay!! That is wonderful Theresa.:)

Bettina February 1, 2015 - 4:21 PM

You can substitute soy yoghurt for dairy yoghurt in almost any recipe, in my experience.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 2, 2015 - 9:17 AM

Great tip!Thanks for sharing Bettina.

Kay February 1, 2015 - 5:27 PM

With this, I have found 2 parts flour to 1 part yoghurt works better.1:1 was way too sticky. Great recipe though

Erin January 27, 2020 - 4:22 PM

Me too! I ended up using 2 cups flour to 1 cup yoghurt and still had to add a small handful of flour to get the dough smooth enough to roll without being sticky…

Annika February 12, 2020 - 4:14 PM

I’ll third that, I used easily two cups plus extra for

Annemarie Koevoet March 1, 2020 - 1:19 PM

Which I read comments before i made my 1st ever batch….very sticky! So next time 2 cups flour 1 cup greek yoghurt

Catherine February 1, 2015 - 6:21 PM

Amazing and ridiculously easy even if a bit messy! I did 3 batches because someone ate half of the first batch within 5 minutes!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 2, 2015 - 9:11 AM

LOL they are quite addictive aren’t they.:)

Manu Thomas February 1, 2015 - 8:54 PM

What is website

Christine February 2, 2015 - 5:08 AM

These sound and look yummy

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 3, 2015 - 11:01 AM

Easy and yummy is a good combo for a busy mummy!!

Alan February 2, 2015 - 10:56 AM

Ok – they look delicious but at what temperature do you bake them? 185C?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 3, 2015 - 11:02 AM

Hi Alan, preheat the oven to 180C and bake at that temp. Enjoy 🙂

Di Di February 8, 2018 - 8:22 PM

The recipe stated 180 degrees

Doreen February 2, 2015 - 5:52 PM

can you use just plain yoghurt thanks

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 3, 2015 - 11:03 AM

Yes you can, but I like the zing from the Greek Yoghurt 🙂

Charlotte August 23, 2020 - 1:34 PM

Can you freeze these uncooked, then cook from frozen? Thanks!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 25, 2020 - 1:28 PM

Charlotte I have never done it this way – I always freeze them when they are freshly cooked, and they are just as fresh when i defrost them. I can’t see why you couldn’t freeze them uncooked and then bake them though. If you give this a go, please let us know how they work out. Kat 🙂

Bree February 2, 2015 - 7:58 PM

Do you have to refrigerate them or can they stay out on the bench in a container?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 3, 2015 - 11:04 AM

Good question, I put mine in the fridge, only because I live on the Gold Coast and it’s been really hot here, however they are fine in the kids lunch boxes through the day.

[email protected] Urban Mum February 3, 2015 - 1:08 PM

Brilliant, my now monster sized 12 year scones bounds through the door every afternoon STARVING This recipe is so easy. Thank you, thank you. Trying it today…x

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 4, 2015 - 9:12 AM

Fantastic! They are so easy and very yummy! Perfect for the after school snack.:)

Horizon February 5, 2015 - 12:05 PM

Would it be possible to make larger scrolls (like the ones you see at a certain Australian bakery chain), or would these only really work as the small 2cm things you’ve made here?

Elizabeth Zatschler February 6, 2015 - 4:19 AM

Size depends on how you roll them out. Should be able to make same size as bakeries.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 6, 2015 - 8:49 AM

Absolutely! I think they would be fine.

Linda Davis February 6, 2015 - 5:14 AM

can’t wait to try it!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 6, 2015 - 8:31 AM

It is very yummy, Linda.:)

dawn darken February 6, 2015 - 5:53 AM

I use this recipe as my pizza base,just role it out and put toppings on it,beautiful

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 6, 2015 - 8:31 AM

What a fantastic idea, Dawn! I might have to try it.:)

Karena February 7, 2015 - 1:13 PM

When using as a pizza base, my mum always put a hand full of cheese in the dough too just to add to it.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 9, 2015 - 9:12 AM

Ooh yum! That sounds delicious, Karena!

karen February 7, 2015 - 12:47 PM

Could you use sour cream instead of yoghurt?

Karena February 7, 2015 - 1:07 PM

Yes you can. Any alternate method of making scone dough is possible. Cream for a rich dough, lemonade for light and fluffy.

Lisa February 9, 2015 - 11:30 AM

I’d like to try Vegemite and cheese, though can’t imagine that it would be easy to spread Vegemite on the dough… Any tips??

Rachel September 23, 2015 - 2:27 PM

You can put the Vegemite in a microwave jug (eg Pyrex) and soften a bit. It is really hard to spread that thickly without breaking the dough, but luckily you don’t really need it very thick. The first time I ever did them I used way more Vegemite than necessary, and although the kids loved them, it made me gag!

Lee July 4, 2021 - 10:48 AM

I mixed a Vegemite into some pizza base sauce and then spread, added some cheese. Devine

Kirsten February 9, 2015 - 10:13 PM

How long will these keep for?

Apryl February 10, 2015 - 4:12 PM

I just made this with vegemite and cheese. The vegemite was easy to spread with a butter knife. Very yummy! Thanks 🙂

Kat February 11, 2015 - 8:13 AM

Vegemite is NOT gluten free @ Suzie.

Erin January 27, 2020 - 4:26 PM

It you can get a gluten free version now…. saw it at Coles just the other day….

Joanna February 13, 2015 - 1:03 AM

Can I make the dough the day before? Or can I make it and freeze it?

Andrea February 13, 2015 - 3:43 PM

Would sweet fillings work with this dough for example cinnamon and sultana etc?

Hollie February 18, 2015 - 3:42 PM

These are great! My children absolutely love them and they are a much healthier alternative to the cheese and bacon roles sold in the supermarket. I use wholemeal flour for a little fibre boost. I did find however the first time I made them they stuck to paper lining the tray which was super annoying to then have to peel off. The nest time I just used a lightly greased tray and they came out fine. Thanks for sharing!

Hollie February 18, 2015 - 3:44 PM

Oops, I meant cheese and bacon ROLLS!

Carla March 1, 2015 - 10:18 AM

Just made these for the first time. Tip – put the scrolls onto the oven tray with the ingredients facing up, like you are looking down into the scroll – I didn’t and now have scrolls that looked like filled dumplings! Lesson learnt.

Amanda March 13, 2015 - 5:38 PM

I made scones using this recipe by just adding sultanas – yummo, so light and so so easy! so i get to indulge without feeling guilty about them having sugar, cream and butter in them.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 16, 2015 - 9:15 AM

Ooh yum! I love your idea of adding sultanas, very yummy.:)

Deb April 21, 2015 - 12:16 PM

I don’t know how I could get something so simple so wrong but no matter how much flour I kept adding I just had a sticky mess. It wouldn’t form into dough. I reckon I ended up adding another whole cup of flour. Anyone else have this problem?

mary June 17, 2015 - 2:27 PM

put cup of flour in first then only add greek yogurt spoon by spoon as needed. remove any water from yogurt first.

Deb June 17, 2015 - 6:22 PM

How do you remove water from yoghurt?

Rachel Keyte September 23, 2015 - 2:24 PM

I only use half the yoghurt (or cream!) then add a little more if necessary. I find the equal parts flour and yoghurt is way too wet.
I’ve been using this recipes for a few years as pizza dough too – works well!

Erin January 27, 2020 - 4:30 PM

Yep. Made it the next time with 2 cups flour. Worked so much better but had to kneed it into the dough ball as it did seem quite crumbly to begin with but just kept at it and it came together, ended up adding an extra handful of flour too.

Amanda June 5, 2015 - 5:43 PM

have taught the kids to make these – 1 part yoghurt to 2 parts flour – roll out and pizza ingredients on top – tomato paste, olives, pepperoni or bacon and cheese. We make lunch sized scrolls which are perfect for school.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 9, 2015 - 8:47 AM

Ooh they siund delicious! I love that the kids get in and make them too.:)

mary June 17, 2015 - 2:27 PM

put cup of flour in first then only add greek yogurt spoon by spoon as needed. remove any water from yogurt first.

ILANNA September 11, 2015 - 5:28 AM

For Celiac’s could you change to using GF flour instead?

Jk January 19, 2016 - 10:14 AM

Has anyone tried wholemeal SF flour?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 19, 2016 - 12:18 PM

They would be great with wholemeal, I would think they may need a little extra greek yoghurt, you’ll be able to tell when you mix it together if the mix is too dry?

Narine January 23, 2016 - 9:33 PM

How could you turn it gluten free?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 27, 2016 - 12:14 PM

I’m not entirely sure Narine sorry, I hope another reader maybe able to help you.

Jessie October 26, 2017 - 5:39 PM

Hello Narine, you could substitute the flour for gluten free SR flour. Read further up the page for the other gluten free comments. Thanks for the recipe Katrina, I’m eager to give it a try myself with the GF flour for my son:)

Carol January 23, 2016 - 10:57 PM

This recipe popped up on Facebook. Too easy!
I just cooked them at 11.30 pm

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 27, 2016 - 12:15 PM

They are so quick and easy, my Dad was over yesterday while I was making them to freeze for kids lunches and he said, that’s really easy I could do it….. I was excited to hear that as he’s not much of a cook.

Jessie October 26, 2017 - 5:42 PM

Hello Katrina,
Just wondering how you freeze your scrolls?? May seem like a silly question, but do you zip lock bag them individually or in groups of 2 or 3?? Do they get freezer burn?? Are they soggy when they defrost in the kids lunchboxes??
Sorry for the list of questions xo

Jessamy McDougal June 12, 2020 - 1:35 PM

Hi Jessie, We have a large sistema box in the freezer filled with baking that the kids can use for lunches and afterschool snacks. I re-fill it every weekend. I seperate the layers with pieces of baking paper that i reuse again and again. Every weekend after we are done baking, I take out the leftovers from the previous week, wash and dry the box thoroughly then refil (with the leftovers on top, taking out anything thats looking unhappy) before putting it back and the kids MUST use leftovers before new baking. I put scrolls, muffins, sweet and savory cookies, fritters in it, these all freeze well, but the biscuits wont be crunchy on defrost. None of then defrost wet in the kids lunchboxes 🙂

Majka January 30, 2016 - 8:57 PM

I make them also sweet, with a cinnamon filling(cinnamon powder, butter, brown sugar, vanilla). Delish! 🙂

Majka January 30, 2016 - 9:00 PM

Aaaand: our favourite: butter, sea salt , crushed garlic cloves..:) (well, don’t take them out of house 🙂 but they never stay long enough to be taken anywhere anyway lol )

Manic Mama March 4, 2016 - 12:22 PM

I always make sure I use parmesan cheese or similar as there is a big hit of flavour & not much fat.

Sometimes I use jam & coconut, and also add a bit of coconut to the dough.

Sometimes I make these for dinner – make the dough, put out bowls of filling choices & let the kids go for it. They get a dinner they like & I get a night off – everybody wins.

I also make pizza-pockets from this dough. It works so well.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 8, 2016 - 7:44 AM

Love the idea of Jam and Coconut, yummo!!

Victoria August 6, 2016 - 11:29 AM

Can these be frozen once cooked?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 8, 2016 - 6:54 PM

absolutely Victora, freeze them and pop them frozen into lunchboxes and they will be defrosted by lunch time.

Ali Abbott September 5, 2016 - 6:20 PM

I have just made this recipe ready for school tomorrow. I found that I needed almost two cups of flour to one cup of greek yoghurt. I live in the UK and it is raining today. Maybe this is why? I know flour’s asorbancy varies with climatic conditions. They are in the oven right now…looking quite good!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife September 6, 2016 - 8:55 AM

Hope your family enjoyed them Ali 🙂

Jude November 27, 2020 - 9:47 PM

We find this dough sticky. My daughter makes these regularly and like other people who commented, we find that a lot more flour is needed than 1 cup. Maybe Kat’s brand of yoghurt is not so watery? We use Jalna pot set Greek yoghurt and we tip the water off the top and increase the amount of flour. Also when I work with dough I flour my hands and the bench very well to help stop the dough sticking.

Jude November 27, 2020 - 9:48 PM

Also it is very dry where we live so its not just a rainy climate problem

Emily Burman February 9, 2017 - 10:36 PM

can I store these for the next day?
Airtight container?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 10, 2017 - 9:38 AM

absolutely, they will keep for 1-2 days. However, you can freeze them to have them for up to 3 months 🙂

Devanshi Shah January 23, 2018 - 9:32 AM

Can i Just use puff pastry with all these ingredients.. I found with yoghurt and self raising flour they were not crispy and fluffly. it was a bit doughy inside

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 24, 2018 - 9:27 AM

Hi there, yeah would be fine to use Puff Pastry. Perhaps add some more Self Raising flour if it was a little doughy for you. I made them again this week and they were such a hit. Hardly had any left to store for lunches as they were almost eaten before they cooled

Dawn June 6, 2019 - 9:41 PM

I just made this into cinnamon scrolls using 170g cocobella coconut yoghurt and a bit over 1 cup of white wings gluten free sr flour. Amazing! I cooked some in the pie maker and some in the oven, the pie maker wins hands down. They puffed up beautifully the ones in the oven were still nice but didn’t puff up as much,

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 10, 2019 - 9:21 AM

Sounds delicious Dawn! Thanks for sharing x

Tina February 5, 2020 - 5:04 PM

These are so yumm straight out of the oven. I kept them for 10 mins longer in the oven. Once they cooled they got a bit too hard. I’m worried the dough may not cook in 20 minutes, do you ladies keep it for exactly 20 mins?
Thank you.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 6, 2020 - 10:45 AM

Hi Tina, so glad to hear that you enjoy these scrolls 🙂 I cook mine for 20 minutes and they are perfect, but remember that every oven can be a little different. It yours were a but hard after they cooled I would say you over cooked them a little. Perhaps try 5 minutes less next time. Hope this helps! Kat x

Katee Robertson February 23, 2020 - 9:06 AM

With the pickle ham and spinach? Is it just a pickle relish?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 26, 2020 - 1:54 PM

Yes that’s right Katee – it’s delicious! Kat x

Debbie February 29, 2020 - 10:51 AM

I recently purchased your cookbook and thought I’d try this recipe. I’m a hopeless baker but need to learn to cook before my son starts school next year. I tried making the dough with Jalna Greek yoghurt but it was a sticky mess. I had to add an extra cup of flour to be able to roll the dough. I added pizza sauce, ham and shredded tasty cheese. The scrolls turned out perfect and were very delicious. My pre-school children requested seconds. My husband also devoured a whole tray and none made it to the freezer. I will need to make a double batch next time!!
I was reading the comments above and will try gradually adding the yoghurt next time.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife March 3, 2020 - 11:08 AM

Debbie I love that you tried your hand at this recipe and that your husband and son enjoyed the scrolls. I always try to make a double batch of this recipe too – they never last long in my house 🙂 Kat x

Katie Millington May 20, 2020 - 12:13 PM

I’ve never made any type of dough before so I thought these would be easy for a first timer. They turned out fantastic! I did cheese and spinach I devoured 3 and my hubby even ate them too!!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife May 26, 2020 - 8:55 AM

They are so easy aren’t they Katie?! Glad you enjoyed making (and eating!) them 🙂 Thank you for sharing your feedback with us x

Jenna June 24, 2020 - 4:21 PM

I’m not sure what happened with mine. The dough was super sticky and extremely difficult to roll. I added plenty of extra flour and kneaded it but I just ended up with a very messy kitchen and a food disaster on my hands. A little annoyed at myself that it didn’t work as I’ve seen the yoghurt and flour bread recipe so many times lately so it’s obviously very popular. Not sure where I’ve gone wrong!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 25, 2020 - 12:47 PM

Hi Jenna, please don’t give up on these! Once you work them out they are really easy – and super yummy too! Other readers who’ve had this problem before have added the greek yogurt spoon by spoon as needed, this way they get the perfect consistency. I hope you have more luck in round two 🙂 Kat x

Steve July 11, 2020 - 9:20 AM

Can you freeze these?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 13, 2020 - 3:22 PM

You certainly can Steve! Kat 🙂

Sally September 9, 2020 - 7:32 AM

For the cheesy- mite version, the travel tube of vegemite is the ideal consistency to spread

Katrina - The Organised Housewife September 9, 2020 - 12:12 PM

Ooo fabulous tip Sally! Thank you for sharing x

Jude December 24, 2020 - 12:43 PM

In regard to the stickiness/wetness of the dough – We compared Woolworths Greek yoghurt to Jalna Greek yoghurt. The Woolworths Greek yoghurt is not as wet as Jalna. So if you use Jalna add more flour (half as much again or maybe double) or less yoghurt. Its not hard to work out because the dough won’t roll out if its too wet or dry. I would also suggest to anyone starting out working with dough that flouring your bench, hands and rolling pin make it so much easier and also noting that the dough takes a bit of kneading to work the yoghurt evenly through the flour. Definitely worth mastering!

I make naan with a very similar recipe: !/2 cup yoghurt and 3/4 cup s.r. flour. Make the dough and knead until smooth. Wrap the dough in baking paper and set aside for 20 mins. Then cut into 4 portions and roll out to naan shapes. Fry in a little oil for 2 mins each side. Very quick and not as greasy as purchased naan. I find this recipe also needs extra flour – but yoghurt and flour varies, so I start with this amount.
