Easy flatbread

    35 min

    This bread is great for having with your curry, much better than your shop bought naan bread. It is quick and easy to make as it does not require yeast or rising. You can add in your own herbs and spices for different flavours.

    Makes: 8 flatbread

    • 200g plain flour
    • 200g Greek yoghurt
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 dash pepper, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Put in the flour, yoghurt, bicarbonate of soda, salt, pepper and herbs in a bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon till roughly blended, then combine with your hands till it has turned into a rough dough ball. Knead until it turns into a nice dough, about 2 to 5 minutes.
    2. Shape the dough into a disk of 2.5cm (1 in) and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
    3. Heat a heavy frying pan. Roll out one of the balls into a 5mm disk.
    4. Place the disk into the pan and flip when bubbles start popping up and a little bit of steam comes up from underneath the disk. When flipped wait for 30 seconds and flip for the 2nd time onto a plate. Repeat until all 8 flatbreads are cooked.


    Do not pile the flatbread on top each other or cover with a tea-towel when hot, this will make the it sweat. Keep it warm in the oven.
