    8. For the patties.
    9. Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.
    10. Knead the flour, turmeric, salt and ghee with water to form a firm dough.
    11. Roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickness and cut 6-inch round pieces.
    12. For an extra flakiness in the crust, brush the rolled out dough with ghee, fold and roll again.

    19. Serve hot with some hot-n-spicy scotch sauce.
