  • 300g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 250g natural yogurt (buy a 500g pot and save the rest for lamb meatballs, see goes well with)
  • 4 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Tip the flour into a large bowl and add 1 tsp salt. Add the yogurt, 2 tbsp water and the sesame seeds, then mix to make a dough (it’ll be quite wet). Flour the work surface and tip out the dough. Divide into six pieces. Working with one ball at a time, and keeping the others covered with a tea towel, roll into flatbreads about 0.5cm thick.

  2. Heat a large griddle or frying pan until really hot. Brush one flatbread with oil, then put in the pan, oil-side down. Cook for 2-3 mins each side until bubbles appear on the surface and the underneath is brown. Turn over and cook for another 2 mins, then transfer to a plate. Continue cooking the remaining flatbreads. Wrap them in foil and keep warm in a low oven until ready to serve, or serve at room temperature.

Does it need to be full fat yoghurt?

Thanks for your question. You can use reduced fat yogurt. Full fat will retain more moisture in the finished flatbread.
