This flatbread recipe is something everyone should learn, because it’s so simple, easy and quick and you can use flatbreads for whatever dish you like. Use it to accompany soups, salads, stews, curries, dips, herb butters and sooo much more! And they only need 10 minutes work and 20 minutes resting time.
As I mentioned a dozen times before: I’m a huge fan of Masterchef (Australia). The contestants make flatbreads with sooo many different dishes, and that made me want to try them too!
I often buy wraps, naan, pita or any other type of (flat) breads to accompany my food and sometimes they are rather expensive. Make them yourself and you only pay for 400g of flour, 300g of yoghurt, some salt and some baking powder… So cheap!
Mmmmkay so onto the recipe! I think it’s highly customizable: for now I only used plain flavours but you can add herbs, spices, or even things like sesame seeds to make it a bit more interesting. Simply try some stuff out and see what works for you.
I used a mixture of plain and whole-wheat flour, but you can play around with this too. Make them from 100% whole-wheat or maybe even spelt, buckwheat or oat flour if you feel up for it! Let me know your results 😉
I’ll be posting recipes using flatbread soon, too. Stay tuned! We’re actually eating a great combination tonight, can’t wait to share that with you… Please share/pin, and leave a comment down below! See you soon 🙂
- Flour, 400g (I used 200g plain and 200g whole-wheat flour)
- Yoghurt, 300g (I used skinny)
- Baking powder, 2 teaspoons
- Salt, a pinch
- Combine the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl.
- Add the yoghurt and mix through. Add a pinch of salt.
- When everything is combined well, you can start kneading the mixture into a dough. You can do this in the bowl or on a flat surface.
- I kneaded the dough for 2-3 minutes, until it was well mixed and slightly elastic.
- Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with tinfoil. Let rest for 10-30 minutes.
- Divide the mixture into smaller balls. Depending on the size of flatbread you want, you should get around 6-10 out of this. Roll out the dough as flat as possible. (If sticky: use some extra flour or oil) I covered the dough with a piece of foil, so that the dough wouldn't stick to my rolling pin.
- Heat up a frying pan without oil and cook the flatbreads until both sides have a nice colour. This should take around 2 minutes per side.
