11 Dec Quick and Easy Flatbreads
Baking bread at home doesn’t have to be difficult – flatbreads are super simple to make, quick to cook and taste delicious served straight from the pan. They’re made from two main ingredients – self raising flour and natural yogurt – and you can add whatever herbs and spices that tickle your fancy!
The perfect accompaniment to grilled meat or veg, they can be prepared on an open-fire or in your kitchen at home. We have found that they are also a really fun and easy recipe to get the kids involved!
The dough will also freeze well, just divide the dough into desired portions, wrap loosely in clingfilm and pop in the freezer. To bake, allow the dough to thaw overnight in the fridge, or for 2-3 hours at room temperature and follow the cooking instructions below!
Ingredients (makes 10)
- 300g natural yoghurt
- 300g self raising flour
- ½ tsp bicarb
- 1 tsp salt
- Optional: 1 tsp chilli flakes, cumin, coriander or any other spice mix.
- Sift the flour with the bicarb and optional spices into a large bowl. Add the salt followed by the yoghurt and combine into a nice soft dough. If the dough is too sticky add a touch more flour.
- Leave the dough to rest for a few minutes before using.
- Take the dough out of the bowl and place on a floured work surface. Divide the dough into 10.
- Roll each piece into a ball and using a rolling pin roll a few millimetres thick.
- Heat a large frying pan/griddle pan and dry fry your flatbreads, turning every few minutes. When they begin to puff up they’re ready!
- Place the flatbreads onto a plate and cover with a tea towel until serving so that they don’t dry out.
- Serve on a large serving board so everyone can dig in and help themselves!
