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

Makes 6

$  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…….
