Take a large bowl and mix refined flour and baking soda. Add four tablespoons of ghee into the flour mixture. Add the beaten yogurt and knead well. Make a soft dough and cover it with dump cloth for 25 minutes.
Divide the dough into sixteen equal portions and shape into smooth balls. You have to make circle the balls with the press of your palm. Make a slight hole in the centre of the ball with your thumb.
