Flat bread

A simple, yeast-free flatbread recipe that’s a great last-minute choice when you don’t have hours to wait for the yeast dough to rise. This flat bread is incredibly soft and malleable, which makes it ideal for using as a wrapper for Doner kebabs, Shawarma, and Gyros. Alternatively, as naan to dip into Butter Chicken or Tikka Masala. There are countless options!


  1. Two cups of all-purpose plain flour (level cups, unsifted, not packed),
  2. plus reserve 1/4 cup extra for dusting and correcting the dough;
  3. 1/2 tsp salt;
  4. three and a half tablespoons / fifty grams (1.75 oz) unsalted butte
  5. three-quarter cup milk


  • Pour milk over melted butter. Heat the butter and milk together over a stovetop or in a microwave until the butter is just melted.

Mix Dry:

  • Mix two cups flour, butter, salt, and milk in a bowl

Knead for two minutes:

  • Dust the work surface with flour and knead lightly for a few minutes, just long enough to make the dough smooth. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour.

Take a 30-minute break:

Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for about half an hour.

Divide into groups:

  • Before rolling out the dough into 20cm/8″ rounds that are 2-3 mm thick, dust the worktop with flour. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll them into balls.

Heat pan:

  • Without using any oil, heat a nonstick pan on high heat. (Although 1)


  • Put one flatbread in the skillet and cook it for about one and a half to two minutes; it should bubble up significantly. When the underside is nicely browned on both sides, turn it over and continue cooking it for another 45 to 1 minute, or until the bottom is once again browned and puffs up.

Store covered with tea towel:

  • Arrange the cooked bread in a stack and cover with a tea towel; the moisture will assist to soften the surface and increase their pliability. Cook the remaining parts as well.

Apply a butter or oil brush (optional):

  1. For a more opulent appearance, drizzle or mist bread with melted butter or olive oil. Alternatively, try making a garlic butter variation by combining minced garlic with melted butter!
