  • 250 g Plain flour plus extra to dust
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • pinch salt
  • 200 g whole-milk yogurt
  • oil for greasing


  • Place the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl and mix together then add the yogurt.
  • Mix to a soft sticky dough, then allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Roll out each piece to a circle about 20cm (8in) across on a well floured work surface.
  • Heat a lightly oiled heavy based frying pan until very hot. Dust the excess flour off the flatbread and cook for about 30 seconds until the flatbreads begin to bubbles up in places.

    Keep warm until all the flatbreads are cooked.
