Taftan Recipe - How to make Taftan


Prep Time : 1.30-2 hour

Cook time : 26-30 minutes

Serve : 4

Level Of Cooking : Medium


  • Refined flour (maida) 1 3/4 cup

  • Salt 1 teaspoon

  • Sugar 3 teaspoons

  • Yeast Dissolved in water 1 tablespoon

  • Yogurt 2 tablespoons

  • Ghee 3 tablespoons

  • Milk 1 cup

  • Oil 1 tablespoon

  • Onion seeds (kalonji) 1 tablespoon


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Sift the refined flour into a bowl and add salt. Add the sugar, yeast and yogurt and mix well.

Step 2

Add two tablespoons ghee and knead well into a smooth dough by adding milk. Set aside the dough for fermentation.

Step 3

Brush oil on the dough and divide it into equal portions and roll each portion into a ball. Roll out each ball of dough to a round shape that is thicker at the edges.

Step 4

Using only your finger tips press lightly to make groves all around. Place the taftan on a baking tray and sprinkle onion seeds on it.

Step 5

Cook in the preheated oven or in a hot tandoor for fifteen to twenty minutes, basting with the remaining ghee once halfway through the cooking. Serve hot.
