    1. In a large bowl combine the wholemeal flour, plain flour, oil, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Add enough buttermilk to make a stiff dough.
    2. Knead dough for 30 seconds on a well-floured surface.
    3. Cover dough to prevent drying. Roll small handfuls of dough into balls and pat into a flat circle. Using a rolling pin, flatten dough into 26cm circles. Place onto ungreased baking tray. Score pieces into pie shapes by running a knife along but not through dough. Repeat process with remaining dough.

    This was very easy and had a lovely flavour I cooked them in the oven, and after they were cooked and cooled I popped them back in a hit oven for a further cooking that made them drier they were very good served with baba ganouch  -  28 Apr 2014


    I was looking for a flat bread that was like Gyro bread. Cooking this in the oven made more of a cracker, so I decided to try it on a hot cast iron griddle on the stove. They came out wonderfully!! Just what I was looking for. I would up the salt to 1 teaspoon, a little bland.  -  03 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A good little, simple recipe. On my second batch, I left it in the oven for an extra tenminutes, and they became like little crackers that can keep for a long time!  -  26 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
