- wholewheat flour – 1 cup
- chickpea flour – 1 cup
- water (enough to get to the desired consistency)
- salt to taste
- olive oil – 1 tbsp (optional, but without oil the bread might be a little hard)
- turmeric – 1 tsp
- dry red chilli powder – 1 tsp
- sesame seeds – 2 tbsp
- oregano – 2 tsp
- basil – 2 tsp
Step 1. To a mixing bowl add the equal quantity of wholewheat flour and chickpea flour, then all the spices, herbs and oil. You can also add other types of greens, for example parsley, or fresh onion. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Step 2. Keep mixing and start adding some water little by little. Don’t add all the water at once, because the quantity always depends on the quality of flour you use. It needs to form in a soft but stretchy dough. If it is too dry, add some more water and keep kneading for a few minutes until you get a nice soft dough. You can also knead the dough in a food processor, if you have necessary equipment.
Step 3. Make a roll from your dough and put it aside for 10 minutes, it will become softer. Don’t forget to cover it to keep the moisture in the dough.
Step 4. After 10 minutes take your dough and roll it in a long «sausage». In this way you can easily divide the dough in a few equal size parts and make sure that all your breads look the same.
Step 5. Take a small part of dough and roll it between your hands to give it a round shape. Press it between your hands and then cover it with some dry flour. Sprinkle some flour on the rolling pin as well, so that it doesn’t become sticky, and roll your flatbread.
Step 6. Heat the pan and put the flatbread on it. Cook on both sides. To make sure that your bread remains soft longer, you can add a bit of oil on top. To avoid using too much oil, don’t put it on the pan, but just wet the spoon and spread it gently over the flatbread before flipping it.
Enjoy your delicious healthy flatbread without yeast! You can roll them and use like tortillas, a wrap, or just slice them into pieces and have it as a party snack with a flavourful dip. The herbs and spices give it so much flavour, that this bread can easily be enjoyed on its own as well.
