Add sugar and yeast to ¾ cup warm water. Allow yeast to soften and stir until yeast is dissolved. Cover measuring cup with towel and allow yeast and water to froth for 5-10 minutes.
Combine flour and salt in another bowl. Add yeast water, yogurt, and ghee and begin to knead for 5-10 minutes, until the dough soft. Cover bowl with towel and allow to rise in a warm area for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled. Preheat oven to 425.
