♦ 3 teaspoon(s) of vegetable oil
♦ 1 teaspoon(s) of salt
♦ 1 cup of lukewarm milk
♦ Mix and stir the flour and baking powder in a large huge mouthed bowl.
♦ Add the vegetable oil and salt into the lukewarm milk and mix.
♦ Then, add the milk, oil, and salt mixture to the flour and baking powder mixture. This should get a sticky dough-like result.
♦ On flour surfaced plate or clean table, turn and knead it for a couple of minutes.
♦ Return it to the bowl and cover it with damp cloth.
♦ Divide the dough into eight balls in equal sizes and cover it again for about 25 minutes.
