Maximum taste, most tasty consequence with minimal attempt – but with out compromising at the stop result. That’s my top-rated objective and the ethos that underpins each recipe I share right the following on RecipeTin Eats.
Over the years, I actually have tried rather a whole lot of flatbread recipes. Flatbreads from many special cuisines, from blogs and cooking sites, by means of means of house cooks, from truth cooking exhibits (yes, Master Chef and My Kitchen Rules!), critical cooks and celebrity chefs.
But I all the time discovered they have been too doughy (e.g. those that in easy terms use yoghurt simply due to the fact the rainy ingredient) or too crisp to make use of as a wrap unless they have been moistened with lashings of butter. Absolutely delicious, thoughts you. But now not what I was after. So this recipe is my thought of a correct flatbread recipe.

 Recipe Notes:

1. Higher warmth and the thinner the dough = crispier crust, although nonetheless pliable inside, the skinny crispy crust at the backyard could crack while 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 dangle wrap to maintain the items separated, flour won't suffice.
Cooked breads maintain actually properly within the freezer!
3. Works vast with WHOLE WHEAT flour, doesn't work with almond flour. See word four for Gluten Free.
4. Dairy loose / vegan substitutions: A reader tried the unique recipe then mentioned 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 loose version. Brilliant! Another reader has also made this with coconut oil and mentioned it truly works great.
5. This works quite properly with Gluten Free flour. You could want 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 also you is now not going to 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.
