Garlic and coriander flatbread

These taste great with curries. They don’t take much effort, but will need making a little in advance.
Makes 3 flatbread


  • 300g white bread flour (sifted) + a little extra
  • 5g salt
  • 5g bread yeast
  • Tsp of olive oil + a little extra for frying
  • 180 ml warm water (give or take)
  • 1 or 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tsp ground coriander


Put the flour and salt into a large bowl and mix together.

Add the yeast, garlic, coriander and olive oil and slowly add the water and mix together to form a workable dough. You can add more or less water depending on how your dough feels. I find it varies slightly every time.

Tip out onto your worktop, dust your hands with flour and knead for 5 – 10 minutes.

Put your dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover loosely with a wet cloth, to stop it drying out. Place somewhere warm, I usually put it near our wood-burner or in the conservatory on a warm day.

Leave to prove for about an hour, until the dough has roughly doubled in size.

Flour your work surface and break your dough into 3 portions. Roll each piece into a ball, and dust each piece with a coat of flour.

Using a rolling pin, flatten each ball to around 0.5-1cm thick.

Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and cook each flatbread for 3 or 4 minutes on each side
