If it is a recipe for Jachnoon (Baked Bread with Whole Eggs)
you first have make Ajin which is the bread dough that one uses
for the Jachnoon.

Ajin
(Bread Dough)

Ingredients:

4 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil (butter is used in Yemen)
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups water, or enough to make a soft dough
1/4 pound margarine, at room temperature

1. Mix everything except the margarine together, knead a bit
for smoothness. Then rest the dough, covered for 3 hours.

2. Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Flatten out 1 piece to
about 6 inches in diameter. Incorporate about 2 teaspoons of
margarine into the dough circle, pushing and kneading it in but
maintaining the circle.

3. Cut a line open from the center of the circle to the
outside edge. Take one end and roll it around counterclockwise
into a ball. This is the ajin. Prepare all pieces of dough in
the same way. Bake as directed in individual recipe.
