Nothing could be simpler than these flatbreads and they taste delicious too. The toasted cumin adds a wealth of flavour but this could be changed for any herb or seed such as onion or nigella seeds, for example.
Once cooked, the flatbreads can be carefully cut like a pitta bread and filled with a selection of food, or used as they are with a curry, or with a dip.
INGREDIENTS (to make 8 flatbreads)
400g gluten-free self-raising flour (extra for dusting)
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
300ml natural yoghurt
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Tip the cumin seeds into a dry fry pan and toast over a medium/high heat until they become fragrant and start popping.
Mix the flour with the seeds in a bowl and season with salt and black pepper.
Stir in the yoghurt with the water and mix well to form a soft dough.
Turn out on to a floured surface and very lightly knead with your hands to combine, then divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Dust a baking sheet with flour.
Shape the dough into circles or ovals about 1/2cm thick and place on the floured baking sheet. I fitted four to a sheet.
Grill for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side until golden and puffed.
I have frozen a few of these flatbreads and refreshed them by sprinkling with water and popping in a hot oven for a few minutes.
