  • Combine sifted flour and salt in a bowl. Add sugar and yeast to the mixture.
  • Pour in oil and lukewarm water gradually while using a knife to cut and mix the ingredients into a soft, sticky dough. Add more water if needed.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the kneaded dough in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover it and allow it to rise in a warm place for approximately 30 minutes, or until it doubles in size.
  • After the dough has risen, gently press it down on a floured surface and knead until it becomes smooth again. Divide the dough into 6 to 10 pieces and shape them into rectangles.
  • Put the formed dough rectangles on greased baking trays. Cover and leave them in a warm place for about 15 minutes or until the dough balls rise well.
  • Bake the dough on a braai grid over coals or use an unoiled griddle pan on the stovetop until they are fully cooked.
  • Serve the warm bread with butter, cheese, and jam. For a sweet version, you can serve it with chocolate spread.
