Easy Flat bread Recipe

My Flatbread Recipe makes an easy and delicious flatbread with only 3 ingredients! That means in no time, with no yeast, no eggs, and no difficult techniques, you and your family can enjoy homemade flatbread.

Similar to a traditional Indian flatbread or naan bread, this flatbread is made with a base of yogurt and flour and that’s it! Cooked on the stovetop, this bread takes just a few minutes to crisp and bubble up. The finished product is a big stack of toasty, chewy and savory flatbread.


INGREDIENTS

1 cup (8oz/225g) full fat natural plain yogurt (or greek yogurt) Add enough yogurt to match the consistency in my video. You may not need the entire cup depending upon the type of yogurt and flour you use.

1 cup (5oz/142g) all-purpose flour*

2 teaspoons baking powder

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Next, add in the yogurt and mix with a spatula until the yogurt has absorbed the flour. You will need to get in there with your hands to really bring the dough together. 

Please Note: Depending upon where you live and what flour you use, you may not need all of the yogurt. Start with the initial quantity of flour and add yogurt until you get the same consistency as I did in my video. You may not need all the yogurt so it's best to add it little by little.

Once the dough is formed into a smooth ball, place it on a floured surface. Using a knife divide the dough into 6 (2oz) balls.

Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll each one. Try to roll the dough as thin as possible as this will ensure the bread cooks evenly on both sides with a nice air bubbles in between. 

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. While the skillet is heating melt together the butter, minced garlic and salt in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

Using a pastry brush, brush one side of the rolled dough with the garlic butter before placing it (garlic side down) into hot skillet. Allow the bread to toast and bubble up cooking for about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Once the bread is nice and toasty on each side remove from the heat sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley or herbs of your choice

Repeat this process until all 6 flatbreads are cooked. Stack up on a plate or in a covered basket to keep warm. Store at room temperature for 3 days and reheat on the pan before use. 



Enjoy this simple bread to pair with a curry or falafel recipe!
