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.
