Khamiri Roti (Deep fried Yeast Bread)

This is my first foray into Urdu Muslim cooking – khamir (or khameer) is Urdu for yeast. Saira Mohseen was my student in 1988. She now lives in Melbourne. For the Eid celebrations she had prepared Khamiri roti with other dishes and had posted a photo of the meal on Facebook. I had not come across Khamiri Roti before, and so I asked her for the recipe which she readily shared, cautioning me that it was not standardized. I have standardised the recipe and presented it here with a more detailed procedure.
