Flatbread made with Yogurt




  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour or unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. any herbs you like – basil, oregano, thyme, etc. (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil (we used peanut oil), plus extra for oiling the griddle


  1. In a large bowl combine the flour with the herbs (optional), baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the yogurt and 2 Tablespoons oil and mix until all of the flour is mixed in.
  3. Dust a cutting board with a little flour and dump the mixture out. Knead the dough until it is smooth and not sticky, adding a little flour if necessary.
  4. Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll into balls.
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out each ball until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Heat a griddle over medium heat and brush with the oil. When the pan is hot (but the oil is not smoking) place the dough and cook, turning after 3 -4 minutes or when the bottom is golden brown. Cook for another 3 – 4 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with a little butter or brushed with a little olive oil. (We had this bread with Pav Bhaji!
