Flat Bread

I was given this really easy flat bread recipe from my friend in Leeds.  She had seen it on a recent TV programme.  The same weight of self raising flour to Greek style thick yoghurt is used.  The amounts below make four flat breads which are then baked on a griddle or cast iron frying pan.

It is very versatile and can be used as a sort of “cheat’s” naan bread with Indian meals.


  • 225g Self Raising flour*
  • 225g Greek style yoghurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder*
  • Large pinch of salt
  • *
  • * if you only have plain flour just use more baking powder than normal to the amount of flour.


  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
  • Mix the flour and yoghurt together to give a smooth dough.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  • Cut the dough into four equal pieces.**
  • Flatten each piece and press out or roll on a floured board to a form a thin circle.
  • Heat the griddle or frying pan until it is hot.
  • Cook each flat bread on both sides.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Lovely with lots of butter.


Add some seeds such as black onion seeds to the dough when rolling out.

** you can freeze these portions – wrap them individually in thin plastic and place in a box.

I love cooking and baking. I love trying out new recipes and currently am trying out many old favourites from my Polish cookbooks and family recipes. I am trying out many variations, often to make them easier but still delicious. I collect glass cake stands and china tableware, mainly tea plates, jugs and serving dishes, many of which I use on a daily basis. They are an eclectic mixture from the 20th & 21st century.
