Make Your Own Wholemeal Flat Bread !
Healthier and cheaper then buying it from the shop.
I made a batch up yesterday, Kevan & Jack loved them, so I will be making them again. Especially good if you run out of bread and want to save a trip to the shop. You could use white flour, I always use wholemeal flour for all my muffins, cakes, biscuits, & pancakes. Here is the recipe.
250 grams wholemeal plain flour.(Extra for rolling)
1 teaspoon salt.(I use Himalayan salt crystals)
1 tablespoon of oil (I use extra virgin olive oil)
160 mils warm water. If using plain flour you may need a little less)
Mix well together until you have a nice soft workable dough.break in to 8 portions and roll into balls, then on a floured surface spread some flour and using a rolling pin, roll out thin circles or what ever shape you like, mine look very rustic cross between circles & squares. Using a dry fry pan on medium to high heat and cook either side a minute or two until they have little brown specks like in photo. Mine went crispy, great to use like chips for dips, if you want them soft so they can be rolled up with fillings or just like them softer, as you cook them cover with a tea towel . Jack & Kevan had them warm with butter on them.
