Easy (no yeast) Flatbreads
These easy flat breads are made without yeast and contain no dairy making them suitable for vegans. Soft and pliable they make great wraps and can be served with curries and middle eastern style dishes.
- 325 g (11oz) plain flour (all-purpose flour) plus extra for dusting
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin plus extra for greasing
- 200 ml (7floz) water
Place 325g (11oz) flour and ½ teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre.
Pour 3 tablespoon olive oil and 200ml (7floz) water into the well and mix the flour and liquid together to form a smooth slightly sticky dough. If the dough is very sticky mix in a little more flour.
Cover the bowl and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 equal-sized pieces and roll each one out on a floured surface until it is about the size of the base of your frying pan.
Heat the pan and lightly oil and when the pan is very hot place a flatbread in the pan and cook for 1–2 minutes. When you see the breads start to bubble up and that the underside is begining to brown flip over and cook the other side until golden.
Place on a plate and cover with a clean tea towel while cooking the remaining flatbreads.
Repeat with the other breads lightly greasing the pan if required inbetween cooking each flatbread.
You may find it easier to roll out the breads one at a time while the previous one is cooking.
