Introduction: 2-Ingredient Flatbread
In this Instructable, I will show you how to make flatbread at home without yeast. This 2 ingredient flatbread recipe is awesome and super easy to make! I do love a traditional Naan-type flatbread which is yeast-based, but I don't always want to take the time to make it. This simple flatbread recipe does the trick nicely and you will be eating homemade flatbread in about 30 minutes. If I can do it, you can do it! Let's get started.
Don't forget to follow me and check out my other Instructables.
Follow the easy steps below or watch the video tutorial or do both!
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
- 2 cups self-rising flour or (2 cups All-purpose flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt) (240g)
- 1 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt (240g)
- Wooden spoon
- Paper towel or cloth
Step 2: Mix the Flour With the Sour Cream
Place the sour cream or yogurt in a large bowl then start adding the self-rising flour about a third of it at a time.
Note:If you don't have self-rising flour, just make your own with 2 cups of flour, 2 tsp of baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. of salt.
Use a wooden spoon or clean hands to mix the dough together. Don't add the flour all at once! Chances are you won't use it all.
Step 3: Knead the Dough
Once the dough comes together pour it out onto a floured surface and knead it for just a few minutes. Add more of the flour as necessary if/when the dough gets sticky. Most likely you will be left with 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of flour, but it fluctuates each time making it.
Shape the dough into a flat disc.
Then cover the dough with a damp paper towel or cloth and let the dough rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 4: Cut and Roll
Once the dough has rested you can place your skillet on the burner and set the heat to medium and start heating it up.
Cut the dough into 6 to 8 equal parts and then roll each piece up into a ball. Then roll them flat with a rolling pin, about 1/8th to 1/4th inch thick, depending on how fat you want your flatbread. I like them a bit on the fatter side personally, haha.
Step 5: Cook the Flatbread
Time to cook that flatbread. The skillet should be hot. I am using a cast-iron skillet, but you can use a nonstick or stainless steel one as well. No need to add oil to the skillet. The flatbread shouldn't stick.
Lay the flatbread onto the bottom of the hot skillet. And let it cook. It will puff up a bit. It only needs 30 to 60 seconds to cook on each side. Once there are nice golden brown marks on it, that side is done.
Flip them over with tongs, or use your fingers (but be careful if using your fingers, don't touch the bottom of the skillet, it is hot!)
Once both sides are cooked place the flatbread on a plate.
Step 6: Eat the Flatbread
Time to eat that fresh flatbread! You can dip it in curries, use it for sandwiches, spread butter and jelly or honey on them, place grilled lamb and veggies in it and fold it up, etc. So many uses for this amazing quick flatbread.
