Flatbread recipe

I love contemporary do-it-yourself bread. And though I bake bread with yeast additional frequently nowadays, I nonetheless discover it simpler and a frequent choice to make bread with out yeast.
Maximum taste, most tasty result with minimal attempt – but with out compromising at the stop result. That’s my most advantageous motive and the ethos that underpins each recipe I share right the following on RecipeTin Eats.
Over the years, I actually have tried quite a little bit of flatbread recipes. Flatbreads from many special cuisines, from blogs and cooking sites, through house cooks, from truth cooking exhibits (yes, Master Chef and My Kitchen Rules!), extreme cooks and celebrity chefs.
But I all the time discovered they had been too doughy (e.g. those that in basic terms use yoghurt simply due to the fact the rainy ingredient) or too crisp to make use of as a wrap unless they had been moistened with lashings of butter. Absolutely delicious, thoughts you. But no longer what I was after. So this recipe is my concept of a right flatbread recipe.

And of course, it be perfect to be used as pita bread, for issues like Greek Gyros and Greek Chicken Souvlaki.

And right the following I actually have used it as “naan” as a part for Butter Chicken. When I make it to be like “naan”, I prepare dinner it on a somewhat upper warmth to get bigger and additional brown bits on it – simply like actual naan! The crust will get somewhat crispier so it’s no longer as suited to make use of as a wrap, like within the above photo.

If you’ve through no means tried do-it-yourself bread before, this flatbread recipe is a vast one to jump with as it truly is that easy. The worst which could also just occur with this flatbread recipe is that the warmth is simply too excessive whilst you prepare dinner it so the external finally ends up a little too crunchy and cracks whilst you roll it. If that happens, simply spray it with olive oil or brush frivolously with oil or butter and it's going to moisten the surface.
Try this once, and store-bought flatbreads will through no means be the similar again. That I can promise! – Nagi x

 Recipe Notes:

1. Higher warmth and the thinner the dough = crispier crust, although nonetheless pliable inside, the skinny crispy crust at the backyard can also just crack whilst you roll it. This is how I make naan. The bigger darker brown spots at the bread (see picture in post) make it appear like authentic naan, simply like what you get at Indian restaurants!
2. STORING: Dough retains within the refrigerator for round 3 days. Tip: Roll out the rounds, prepared to cook. Just make certain you use baking paper or grasp wrap to hold the items separated, flour won't suffice.
Cooked breads hold truly properly within the freezer!
3. Works vast with WHOLE WHEAT flour, doesn't work with almond flour. See be aware four for Gluten Free.
4. Dairy unfastened / vegan substitutions: A reader tried the unique recipe then stated again that it also labored simply as vast substituting the butter with olive oil and almond milk for the dairy milk to make it a vegan / dairy unfastened version. Brilliant! Another reader has also made this with coconut oil and stated it truly works great.
5. This works quite properly with Gluten Free flour. You can also just desire a little bit of additional flour to roll it out - simply upload additional as required. The texture is a little special - a little chewy, and you'll no longer be capable to roll them out into neat rounds like pictured. 
6. Use this for: GyrosSouvlaki, as naan for curries like Butter ChickenChickpea Curry or Beef Rendang.
