Yogurt Patties

1. Hung yogurt is the key to this recipe. Put yogurt in a muslin cloth and hang to drain. It will be reduced to about 2 cups in hour hours.

2. Put milk and saffron together. Heat for 20 seconds on high. If you don't have microwave, heat milk on stove top and add saffron. Wait about 10 minutes so the saffron is infused.

3. Add hung yogurt, saffron and remaining ingredients. Knead like a stiff dough to make Chapati. If needed add a little more Besan. Make small patties, about 4" round ½" to ¾" thick.
