How To Make Yoghurt Flatbread

Okay, you are going to LOVE how easy this quick flatbread recipe is to make!

Mixer Instructions

  • Put the flour, baking powder and Greek yoghurt into the mixer bowl. Using the dough hook mix on speed 4 for around 2 minutes. Then reduce to speed 2 for around 2 more minutes or until the dough is in a pliable ball.

Step One – make the yoghurt flatbread dough by hand

  • Put the flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix well.
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour, and tip in the Greek yoghurt.
  • Using your hand, mix the yoghurt in small circles into the flour, taking more and more flour into the yoghurt on each circle.
  • Then tip the dough onto a surface dusted with flour and knead for a few minutes until you have a pliable dough.

Step Two – make the mini flatbreads

  • Roll the dough into a ball and then cut it into 8 equal pieces.
  • You won’t need a rolling pin, just roll the pieces into a ball on a floured surface and then squash into a flatbread with your hands, pushing the dough out with your fingers. You’re aiming for them to be around 4 inch rough circles. You don’t need to be neat, this is a rustic recipe!

Step Three – cook the flatbreads

  • Put the frying pan over a high heat on the hob. Don’t add any oil, you’re going to dry fry these mini flatbreads.
  • Pick each flatbread up from the floured surface, shake off the excess flour then put into the frying pan and leave until the surface starts to rise, bubble and puff slightly. You should be able to fit at least two in the pan at one time.

  • Then flip the flatbreads using a spatula and cook the other sides until they start to colour up and brown.
  • Once the flatbreads are cooked, remove them from the frying pan. If you are using butter, brush the flatbreads with butter as they come out of the pan, then wrap loosely in a clean tea towel until all the flatbreads are cooked and you are ready to eat.

Can I Freeze Flatbreads?

Yes – you can cool these, wrap them in foil and freeze. It’s best to freeze them without brushing them with butter.

If you put a sheet of greaseproof paper between each flatbread then it makes it easier to just remove the number you need as they don’t stick together.

To use, just remove from the freezer and defrost – then, if you like you can reheat them by toasting them in a toaster or frying pan.

How To Make Flavoured /Butters For Brushing On Flatbreads

It’s super easy to make flavoured butter for brushing on warm flatbreads. You can do it on the hob or in the microwave.

How to make simple flavoured butters – on the hob

  • Add around 50g of butter to a small saucepan, add the grated garlic and chopped herbs of your choice, warm on the hob until the butter melts. Stir everything together. The brush on the flatbreads.

How to make flavoured butters – in the microwave
