  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup canola/vegetable oil
  • ¾-1 cup milk


  • Mix together the dry ingredients for the flatbread then add the yogurt and oil. Add the milk, a little at a time, and mix until a rough dough starts to form. You might not need all the milk.
  •  Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until it just comes together in a smooth ball. Cover in plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. 
  • roll tennis-sized balls of dough out onto a floured surface (to around ½cm thick) and cook in a hot pan until golden and bubbling then flip and cook for another minute or two on the other side. 
  • Remove from the pan, brush with melted butter (optional) and keep wrapped in foil until ready to serve. 
  • To re-heat the flatbread keep wrapped in foil and heat in the oven for 10-15 minutes until heated through.
