  • 400g gluten-free self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting (we used Doves)
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds, toasted
  • 300ml natural yogurt


  1. Heat the grill to medium and dust a baking sheet with a little flour. Mix the flour and cumin seeds in a bowl, then season. Stir in the yogurt and 100ml water, then mix well to form a soft dough.

  2. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, then shape into circles or ovals about ½cm thick. Dust lightly with a little flour. Grill on the baking sheet for 3-5 mins on each side until golden and puffed. Serve warm.

Fantastic recipe! I've also experimented with roasting garlic in the oven for 10mins, puree then add to yogurt and flour mixture (omitting the cumin!) for roasted garlic flatbreads! Delicious with any pasta dish etc - we had some just last night!!! Even my 16month old loves them - and gluten free too!!! Fab!!!

Amazing! Gluten-free bread to have with curry was a treat! Used greek yoghurt as had no natural but turned out lovely. Will definitely make again, and about to have the leftover with jam for breakfast...

Fantastic Gluten free flatbreads. I didn't have yogurt in the fridge so i used creme fraiche, which worked out really well. I also used garlic salt and fresh corriander to give them a really yummy taste instead of cumin. I think i may have done mine a bit thick so needed longer to cook through but willl be making them again for sure!! Doesn't taste anything like the horrible supermarket Gluten free breads so will use them daily now and use different flavours as so easy to make.

the resipe is super easy. yes, the dough is sticky, so I recommend using a spoon to mix it, not your fingers and dust your fingers with flour when you need to shape the dough. but other than that, it is very tasty and a nice alternative to regular gluten-free yeast bread. without the cumin I can even see this with some butter and jam. and you really cannot beat the quick preparation.

Easy to make but a little bit frustrating as the doh is very sticky. Definately worth a bit of patience though as these are perfect for curries, especially as shop bough gluten free naan is awful. Will definately be giving these another bash!

Forgot to rate it - sorry!

Very easy to make and great with curries. I make a batch and then freeze them for later. I've used regular flour sometimes too - which makes them fluffier. I've also made a sweet version replacing the cumin with a pinch of cinnamon and a handful of sultanas - like a flat scone - delicious!

These were nice, I halved the amount for just us two but kept the whole tablespoon of cumin seeds which made them tasty. I can't say they were particularly light though...perhaps because I had to add more flour as they dough was so sticky.

Quick, easy and so tasty - what more can one ask?

Absolutely brilliant recipe; very light and airy and dead easy to make. I've served it with BBQ chicken kebabs; houmous and with the Good Food low fat Mousaka recipe. My family and friends love it too.
