We eat a lot of Mediterranean food, and curries in our house, and since we have making all our own yoghurt (I use a slow cooker batch which works out really cheap), I have been making flatbreads to use instead of pasta, rice or potatoes. To make two flat breads I use the following:-
175g of thick, plain yoghurt
175g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
- Put the yoghurt in a bowl
- Sieve the flour and salt in to the bowl and mix in a bowl with a spoon.
- If the mixture is too wet, add a bit more flour
- Put on to a floured board and knead for a couple of minutes.
- Roll into a shape.
- I place mine into two recycled, oiled, foil trays.
- I cook mine in the air fryer for about 10 minutes at 200C (until golden brown), and turn them over half way through. You can also cook them in the oven or under a grill.
When I made them last night I switched up the dough by adding paprika and garlic. Sometimes I will just add mixed herbs, or add sundried tomatoes and peppers and eat them with cream cheese on top. You can experiment with any herbs or spices that you have.
You can use any amount of yoghurt and add the same amount of flour to make as many flat breads as you want. These also make great pizza bases. When I was really broke, years ago, I would make flat breads with just flour and water and cook them under the grill. These made with yoghurt are thicker and fluffier than those.
