Easy No-Yeast Yogurt Flatbread, a delicious homemade recipe with only 4 ingredients. No proving, back-breaking kneading, and you have freshly-made flatbread on your table in less than 30 minutes.
As much as we love to hate carbs, we can't live without them, can we? Bread has been a sample food for thousands of years, and rightly so. It's the very basic food that goes with everything. And I absolutely love bread, in any possible shape. Flatbread is particular popular in the Middle East, although people all over the world enjoy it as much.
I remember my grandmother making flatbread when I was a child, and, although her recipe was super basic, it was so delicious, I could not have enough if it. This yogurt flatbread is super simple, and very easy to make. There is nothing better than the aroma of fresh bread that fills the whole kitchen.
And if you can't get to the shops to get bread, why not make it yourself? It's a lot easier to make than you'd think, and can be prepared just before your meal. And here's how to make it!
- plain flour -all purpose flour
- Greek yogurt - or plain yogurt or sour cream
- bicarbonate of soda
- oil - to fry
Step-by-step photos and instructions
Right, so all we need is:
- plain, all purpose-flour (bread flour can be used too)
- yogurt (I used Greek Yogurt, but plain yogurt or sour cream can be used too)
- bicarbonate of soda
And oil to cook, I used vegetable, but any kind will do. Now, if you have a good non-stick pan you can make it without oil, that should not be a problem.
The bicarbonate of soda makes the bread soft, and light, so I do recommend using it. Throw all the ingredients in a bowl (without the oil), mix lightly, then use your hands to gently bring it together into a dough.
Please note! At this stage the dough is pretty sticky, but not to worry, it's absolutely fine. Cover the bowl with kitchen foil, and set aside for 20 minutes.
After this, transfer the dough to the working surface, dust it generously with four, and divide it into 6 balls. Use a rolling pin to flatten each ball, then add a splash of oil the a pan, and cook on a medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side. As you can see from the pictures the bread is cooked to perfection, and it's insanely yummy.
Leaving the dough to rest for 20 minutes is crucial in order to get the right texture for the dough. When the dough is still sticky, we might be tempted to add more flour, but that's not necessary.
Once the dough has rested, the dough will be absolutely fine to work with, and it won't need the extra flour.
What to serve with flatbread
Serve it with your favourite dip, or with your main meal. It's particularly delicious with a good curry, like Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, or Chicken Korma. Or, why not, with a yummilicious Coconut Shrimp Curry. Or anything else you fancy really.
