  1. Put the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl and mix well. Heat the milk in a saucepan until lukewarm. Reserving 1 tbsp of the yogurt, add the rest to the milk and mix thoroughly. Melt the butter and add to the milk and yogurt, mixing well.

  2. Pour slowly over the flour and mix together, then knead for 10 mins until you have a springy dough. Leave to rise in a warm place for about 1 hr until doubled in size.

  3. Divide the dough into 10 even- sized balls. Heat the grill to medium and put a large baking tray under it to heat for about 10 mins. Flatten the balls of dough, roll into rough teardrop shapes and spread with the reserved yogurt. Place on the hot baking tray and grill under a moderate heat for 2-3 mins each side until golden. Watch constantly, as they can burn very quickly.

Could this be made with gluten-free flour?

Thank you for your question. We haven't tested this recipe with gluten-free flour and would suggest using a gluten-free version rather than substituting one for one. You could try our gluten-free toasted flatbreads. If you don't like cumin, simply leave it out. http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/10504/toasted-cumin-flatbreads Hope that proves a good alternative.

Spreading yogurt on them before you grill them may seem odd, but go with it. I experimented and those with the yogurt were better than those without.
