c.  Stir in mangos, reduce heat to low and simmer for 1/2 hour.  Stir in sliced avacados.

3. Prepare the flatbread:

  b. Blend in the warm milk and melted butter.  In a large bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder.  Pour in the yeast/milk mixture all at once and work it into the flour using your hands.  Continue mixing, adding flour or water as needed, until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl.

c. Kneed for 6-8 minutes or until smooth and elastic.  Place in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to coat.  Cover with a damp cloth and let stand in a warm place to rise for about 4 hours.
