Quick Flatbread Recipe

Quick Flatbread Recipe


  • 200g/7oz plain or wholemeal flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 100ml warm water
  • 2 tbsp oil (sunflower, olive or vegetable), plus extra for cooking
  1. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and add the water, then mix together.

  2. Add the oil and knead the dough for around 5 minutes. If it is too sticky add a little more flour, if it is too dry add a splash of water.

  3. Divide the dough into four balls, then roll out each ball of dough to approx 0.5cm thick.  Keep sprinkling flour on the surface to avoid the bread sticking.

  4. Heat a large frying pan then smear a little oil over the pan with kitchen paper. Cook each flatbread for about two minutes on one side, then turn and cook for a couple of minutes on the other side

Recipe Tips

You can make a large batch of these and freeze for next time.  Roll out into rounds, then separate each with grease-proof paper.  You can cook from frozen in the same way, although they will take a little longer.
