Recipe: Easy Flatbreads

On Sunday night after having a roast for lunch I knocked up a quick Chicken Korma curry and some easy peasy, cheap to make flat breads for the family. This recipe is well loved in our house so I thought it was about time I shared it.

Makes approx 8 flat breads


  • 1/2 a tin of coconut milk
  • 300g self raising flour
  • some unflavoured oil for the pan (rapeseed/sunflower/vegetable work well)
  • a little plain flour for dusting the work surface with


  1. Put the flour in to a bowl, add in the coconut milk and mix with a fork (or your hands) until it forms a dough. The dough will be a bit sticky but not unworkable.
  2. Heat a medium/large frying pan on medium heat with enough oil to cover the bottom of it.
  3. Get about a golf ball sized amount of the dough and roll out to be about as thin as a 5p coin (you want it quite thin so it cooks quickly)
  4. Once the pan is nice and hot put the bread in and cook for 2-3 mins on each side (until its golden brown).
  5. Remove from the pan and on to a cooling rack, if you prefer them warm, place them in a plate in a warm oven or reheat for a few seconds in the microwave when ready to serve.
  6. Repeat the above until you’ve run out of dough, I got about 8 flat breads out of this amount of dough.
