Sift flour into a mixing bowl and, using your electric mixer with dough hooks, blend in the hot water, a little at a time, until a ball of dough forms but is not too sticky.
Cover with a tea towel and allow to stand for 20 minutes in a cool dry place.
When rested, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, place crushed garlic, chopped shallots and sprinkle over curry powder onto the middle of the dough, fold it over and knead for a couple of minutes for the ingredients to blend in properly. Add extra flour if necessary.
Roll out to about 5mm thick.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium-sized pan on high, reduce heat to medium and cook the bread for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer onto a cutting board and cut into slices as you would a pizza. Repeat with the remaining dough.
