1. Pour 1/4 cup warmed up milk and add yeast in a bowl. Mix it and wait for 5 minutes until it foams up. Next, add sugar and rest of the milk(which should be cold) and mix. Add 2 cups of flour and salt to it and mix. To it add remaining flour 1/4 cup or more until the dough becomes soft.

6. Put the chilled butter in centre and fold the sides.
7. Roll it into a 17*9 inch rectangle. Fold the left thirds of the dough towards the centre and the right thirds towards the centre.You will end up with 6*9 inch high. Hit it again with the rolling bin and cover with plastic wrap and chill it for 1/2 an hour. Repeat this process 4 to 5 times.
8. Chill the dough for 2 hours or overnight.
9. After 2 hours or longer, cut the dough into to 2 parts. Roll the dough to as wide as possible.
10. Cut it into triangles. Take one triangle at a time and starting with base of the triangle. place a pieces of cheese and ham in the center and gently roll it up to the tip. Repeat with all the triangles.
