What's in the Cupboard Today


A very easy, simple recipe.
Flatbreads - makes 8.
250g plain flour
250g full-fat yoghurt
4 level tspns baking powder
I added a sprinkle of chilli powder and a small bunch of chopped fresh coriander leaves and stems.
Leave them plain or add whatever spice and/or herbs you prefer.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, knead into a dough then set aside for 10 mins.
 Divide into eight balls, and press out until 2mm thick. I used half of the mixture and left the other half in the fridge to use the next day.
Cook on a hot non stick griddle or dry non-stick pan for 2/3 mins on each side. My electric griddle cooks two sides at the same time and took 3 mins for them to cook.
Whilst still hot brush each side with some olive oil, or rapeseed oil (canola) and sprinkle with a few crushed crystals of natural rock salt.

  1. As you say, pretty simple, and it looks delicious. Miriam baked bread a couple of days ago, one of the bonuses of Covid-19 perhaps!

    1. I think that these are the simplest but easiest things I have ever made, and tasted lovely topped with cream cheese, some smoked salmon, and some young pea sprouts.

  2. Dear Rosemary,
    Your flatbread looks delicious enough to pick up with your hands and take to the garden.

    1. We had them topped with some tasty goodies, but you are right they were lovely when hot straight from the griddle.

    Amazing what a bit of chilli does to food, like it.

  4. Hello Rosemary, These look like American baking-powder biscuits, but fried instead of baked. If I tried something like this I would have to substitute for the yogurt. Perhaps a combination of oil and water, but I imagine that some sort of dairy (unfortunately not in my diet) would improve the flavor.

    1. Hello Jim - you can make something similar using olive oil and warm water instead, but they would be much more like something that we would call a wrap.
      125g plain flour, some sea salt crystals, make a dough with 2 tbsps oil and 5 - 6 tbsps warm water, mix into a dough with hands. Kneed for 5 mins, then form into a ball and leave 20mins under cling film. Flatten out like a pancake, dry fry med heat for 20 seconds, flip over, do same other side.

  5. These look fantastic and I will definitely give them a go - perhaps later today! I have an electric panini maker that looks like your griddle - guess I can use that and will get the attractive grill marks on them.
    Thanks for the recipe. Like many, baking bread has become a joyful pastime lately for me too!

    1. Yes, I think that the griddle marks make them look a bit more professional.

  8. These look delicious, and so easy to make, and to vary the flavour with different herbs.

    1. I have never made anything so simple before that looked and tasted so much better than I would have imagined.

  9. Looks tasty. Usually the sort of thing I would eat if placed in front of me but never make myself. I'll need to broaden my cooking skills as I usually stick to around two dozen meals that I always like but never deviate from that and my taste bubs are bored with the same flavours by now. I've been watching Alex Polizzi: Chefs on Trial last couple of weeks so I'm suitably inspired.

    1. Show us what you make Bob, especially if it is a success and awakens up your taste buds too.

  11. Dearest Rosemary,
    That is a very simple but no doubt delicious recipe!
    It is living on my Pinterest for trying later when I'm able to - but no doubt will one day.
    Hugs,

    1. Dear Mariette - if you give them a try then hope you enjoy. We had ours topped with cream cheese, smoked salmon and some fresh, tender, pea sprouts.
