2. Pour the yogurt into a small bowl or jug and heat gently in a microwave or in a bowl over a pan of boiling water (heat until hand hot).
3. Make a well in the centre of the flour, add the warm yogurt. Mix until you have a soft, smooth dough.
4. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead well. Place the dough in a clean bowl and cover with a damp tea towel or oiled cling film. Place in a warm, dry place to rise until doubled in size. Tip: this can be in the top oven, airing cupboard or in a sunny place.
