Homemade flatbread

Blogging Marathon# 60: Week 4/ Day 3
Theme: Bookmarked Dishes
Dish: Homemade flatbread
For the final day of this week's BM under 'bookmarked recipes' theme, I made these soft and multipurpose flatbread. Recipe is bookmarked from Mel's Kitchen.
Flatbread made with yeast
I usually buy pita bread, but do take the time to make them at home sometimes. I also have couple of pita bread recipes on the blog already. They are like our very own naans but thinner and not as fluffy.

I made these flatbread when I made my jackfruit gyros and they turned out amazing. Perfect to wrap up falafel, gyros or some roasted veggies. 

Recipe adapted from Mel's Kitchen:

Homemade Flatbread
  • 1½cups Bread flour
  • 1½cups Wholewheat flour
  • 2tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1tsp Sugar
  • 1tsp Salt
  • ½cup Warm Milk
  • ⅔cup Warm Water
  • 1tbsp Olive Oil
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix and knead to form a soft, pliable dough.
  2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and set aside for about 1 hour.
  3. Divide the dough into 8~10 equal pieces. Cover with a plastic wrap or kitchen towel and set aside for 10~15 minutes to relax the gluten.
  4. Roll the dough into a 6~8" round circle about ⅛" thick.
  5. Heat a griddle or skillet to medium heat, cook for flatbread for 2~3 minutes on each side until brown spots form.
  6. Wrap in a kitchen towel to keep the flatbread warm and repeat with the remaining dough. Serve immediately or freeze for later.
