Chop potatoes, tomatoes and onions. Fry them separately on medium heat. Keep them aside in separate plates.
In a dish, add salt and garlic. Crush garlic into a paste.
Add the paste to Qoroot (Yogurt) and add some water to mix well until it is smooth.
Pour this now to a new dish and cook it on medium heat. Add water and bring it close to boil. Do not boil it over. In a bowl, tear the bread into large bite-sized pieces. Now, pour hot Qoroot that is ready on the stove on it as much as you would like. Add fried potatoes, tomatoes and onions in layers on it.
