Whether wrapped around tender pulled pork or dipped into a bowl of chilli con carne, flatbreads are quick to make and incredibly versatile. They’re also beautifully easy – once tried, expect to be making them all the time.
275g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
28g pack fresh coriander, finely chopped
¾ tsp fine salt
1½ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp cumin seeds, toasted
2 tbsp sunflower oil
1. Boil the kettle. Put the all the ingredients apart from the oil into a mixing bowl and toss together. Add the oil then weigh out 150g just-boiled water and add it to the mixture. Bring everything together into a smooth dough and knead briefly. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the gluten to relax and make it easier to roll out.
2 . Once rested, divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Dust the worktop liberally with flour and roll each portion out into a thin disc, about 20-22cm in diameter. Set the flatbreads to one side; try not to stack them on top of each other or they may stick. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Once the pan is hot, shake off any excess flour from a flatbread and add to the pan; dry-fry for 40 seconds or so per side until punctuated with dark specks of char. Repeat with the remaining flatbreads. Stack the fried flatbreads between 2 plates or in a tea towel to keep them soft. Serve warm.
