If you have never made bread before then this is the recipe for you. There are hundreds of Homemade Yoghurt Flatbread recipes out there but I found Jamie Oliver’s to be the simplest and the most successful. Although the dough is slightly sticky and flour goes everywhere (I too am a novice bread maker), these are a must. You can’t go wrong and trust me, you will never go back. I was so stoked with the result, they even look like a decent Naan and I kid you not, 3 ingredients. Yep, just 3 and minimal kneading and no rising, just a little resting time. Get amongst it.
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cooking time: A couple of minutes each bread
$ Low Budget
Satisfaction scale: EPIC
250gm of self raising flour
250gm of good greek yoghurt
1 tsp of baking powder
To make the Homemade Yoghurt Flatbreads, place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use a spatula to mix it until it is starting to come together and looking a little crumb like. Turn the Yoghurt Flatbread mixture out onto a well floured service pop a drop of oil onto your clean hands. Rub your hands and then work the dough, adding more flour as needed. I did find this dough rather sticky but if you keep adding a little flour at a time it will come together. Once you have a nice large ball, pop it back in the mixing bowl and cover with a tea towel and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
Heat a heavy based pan until nice and hot. Cut the dough into 6 portions and roll the first portion out on a floured surface, to about 4-5mm thick. They won’t be massive like Naan, just a good size for 1 person. Place the first one in the pan and when you see some good sized bubbles coming up, have a little squizz underneath and if it is golden, flip it. In a nice hot pan, this will take about 1 minute on each side. Keep the bread warm in a low oven and repeat with the remaining dough balls until you have 6 cracking Homemade Yoghurt Flatbreads. Am I sounding like Jamie?
I like to brush mine with a little melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt. You can also add garlic, herbs or even vegemite 🙂
These would be absolutely perfect with a curry. In fact, here is one you might like…….
