Soak saffron strands in 2 tbsp hot milk for 1/2 an hour, then mix well to dissolve the saffron.
Mix together flour, salt and sugar and add melted ghee.
Rub in the ghee then adding a little milk at a time, knead into a soft smooth dough.
Cover and keep aside for 2 hours. Knead, and keep again for 2 hours.
Roll dough into 6" rounds about 1/4" thick and prick all over.
Cook on a tawa/griddle, first over high heat then low, to cook through, till brown on both sides.
Smear with the milk solution, cook a little more, then serve hot brushed with ghee.
