  • 1 cups Semolina flour (Fine Sooji)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • ¼ cup milk (or as needed)
  • as needed nutella

  1. Combine semolina flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.

  3. Add 1tbsp milk at a time; mix and knead to form a soft dough. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 6~8 equal pieces. Form a ball and flatten it to ¼" thick disc. Use a 2"~2½" cookie cutter to cut the dough to get even shaped bread.
