Method

Sift the dry ingredients together, and cut in the fat, and then rub in lightly to form a breadcrumb texture. Stir in the parsley. Beat the yoghurt and water together, and stir into the flour mixture to form a soft dough, adding more water if necessary. Roll out to about 2.5 cm (1 inch thick, and cut into rounds.
