Flatbreads. They are literally my lifesaver. And these super easy 3 ingredient flatbreads probably use stuff you already have in the fridge and pantry!
They will mean you can always have a yummy side ready for your next curry or dip and that you never run out of yummy stuff for the kids lunchboxes.
If you’ve always thought making bread was too hard, you will love these, no rising, easy mixing and only 3 ingredients! But they also don’t go hard and have an awesome flavour.
Actually, once you have read this recipe, there’s no excuse for not making your own flatbreads! The rolling can be done by the kids and the ingredients are things you probably already have.
We eat them with mango chicken or other curries, I chop them up to pop in lunchboxes and they are a staple, so I thought it was about time I blogged them.
As an aside, I want to talk about Olive Oil. A lot of people think that your olive oil has to come from Italy, Spain or Greece to be any good.
But by thinking that, we are stopping ourselves from having some of the best olive oil we can find- Aussie olive oil!
It’s so good that it’s all I buy, for many reasons, less food miles, much fresher, better taste, and supporting Aussie farmers.
Sorry, that’s just me- bee in a bonnet about olive oil on a Monday!
Self-raising flour is just plain flour with baking powder added into it, so if you don’t have any, it’s two teaspoons per cup of plain flour.
You can also make these healthier with wholemeal instead of plain white flour, but it also makes them much denser, so they won’t have the light fluffy texture these ones have.
If you want them to be similar to store-bought naan bread, brush with melted butter and garlic before serving.
After making store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze on a tray and transfer to a container when solid.
Defrost overnight in the fridge or just put them on the bench while you prepare the rest of lunch and they will be ready to use.
If you’re looking for recipes with three ingredients only, then I have good suggestions that you can try:
- Super simple 3 ingredient scones
- 3 ingredient festive yoghurt bark
- Spinach yoghurt dough, 3 ingredients
- 1.5 cups natural yoghurt
- 2 tbsps olive oil
- 2.5 cups self raising flour
- Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix either by hand or with a mixer until an elastic dough forms.
- Divide the dough into 16 pieces, then roll each out into a circle around .5m thick.
- Heat a frypan over medium/high heat.
- Sling the flatbread onto the frypan surface.
- Cook until bubbles rise.
- Flip, cook until golden.
- Repeat until they are all done.
