Steps to making a soft, delicious flatbread, and how to turn it into a great family meal that everyone will enjoy!
YOGHURT FLATBREAD RECIPE
1 sachet dried yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup natural yoghurt
11/2 cups sifted plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl mix yeast with sugar & 1 tablespoon of lukewarm water
Whisk in the yoghurt
Stir in the flour
Add the salt
Knead the ball of dough for 10 minutes or so, until it feels smooth & elastic
Place in an oiled bowl & cover
Place in a warm place about 2 hours, or until doubled in size
Remove the dough at this stage, place on bench top & punch down
Knead for about 5 minutes
Divide into 4 pieces, each forming roughly a 12cm round
Heat a griddle or fry pan
Oil the pan and brush the bread with oil as it cooks
Use any ingredients on the top of this soft, deliciously light bread.
I used lamb steaks marinated in little oil, rosemary & sprinkling of sea salt.
Cooked in a hot pan or bbq, rested & sliced thinly.
Accompanied by crispy lettuce & a salsa of chopped tomato, cucumber & spanish onion dressed with a splash of red wine vinegar, pomegranate molasses and olive oil.
A mix of yoghurt, grated garlic, squeeze of lemon & chopped mint dolloped on top!
If you don't have the time or motivation for the yeast thing, a flatbread can be made with equal quantities of self raising flour and natural yoghurt.
