Pan fried mint flatbreads

    37 min

    This thin onion and mint flatbread is a great alternative to tortillas and considering it is an unleavened type of bread it is pretty fast and easy to make. It can be served as a wrap or accompaniment to Middle-Eastern-style dishes.

    Serves: 6 

    • 100g wholemeal flour
    • 30g plain flour, plus more for kneading
    • 1 teaspoon onion granules
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 180ml low-fat yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons soured cream
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon dried mint
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Extra time:10min resting  ›  Ready in:37min 

    1. Mix wholemeal flour, plain flour, onion granules and salt together in a large bowl.
    2. Mix yogurt, soured cream and olive oil together in a separate bowl; stir in dried mint. Pour over flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until well-combined.
    3. Turn dough out onto a well-floured work surface. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, dusting with flour until it is no longer sticky, 8 to 10 minutes. Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest, about 10 minutes.
    4. Divide dough into 6 small balls and roll each piece out into a thin circle.
    5. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Brush with vegetable oil. Carefully transfer one flatbread into the hot pan. Cook until bottom side is golden brown and slightly charred, about 1 minute. Brush raw side with oil and flip. Cook until golden, about 30 seconds. Transfer to serving dish. Repeat with remaining flatbreads.

    I followed the recipe exactly, except to put the dough in the fridge for a couple of hours before I needed to make them. I cooked them on the stove top in a cast iron skillet. Quick and easy side, great served with raita. I would make again with less mint (the flavor was a bit too strong for me) or different herbs/spices. I rolled them very thin but might try to make them thicker next time.  -  02 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
