This flatbread recipe is so easy and it works every time! You can flavour with cumin seeds or nigella seeds or you can leave plain.
Homemade flatbread is a great option if you are cobbling together a family lunch or brunch, run out of bread or have unexpected visitors pop over. This easy flatbread recipe will become a favorite. Freeze the dough in balls for next time if you make too much and then use the leftovers for work lunches or easier mid week meals.
225g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cumin or nigella seeds (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
200g natural yoghurt (low-fat yoghurt also works here)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1. Mix the flour, baking powder, seeds (if using) and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the yoghurt and mix with a wooden spoon to pull together a rough dough.
2. Mix in the oil to form the dough and knead until smooth. A couple of minutes. Leave in the bowl and cover for 10 minutes.
3. Divide the dough into 8 balls and roll each out thinly on a lightly floured surface.
4. Cook on the BBQ (the hot part) or alternatively on griddle or hot dry pan on the hob. 1-2 minutes on each side will do it - until puffed up and charred.
