  • bowl or food mixer
  • pan


  • 450 g strong white plain flour - plus extra for dusting
  • 7 g fast-action yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp ground coriander
  • 100 g warm water
  • 250 ml dairy-free yoghurt (or plain dairy yoghurt for non vegan option)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 generous handful of fresh coriander leaves finely chopped


  • In a bowl, mix together flour, yeast, salt, ground coriander, sugar, water and yoghurt. Add the oil and a generous handful of finely chopped fresh coriander leaves. Knead by hand on a lightly floured surface until you get a smooth and elastic dough.
  • Alternatively, you can also use a food mixer fitted with a dough hook. Once the 6 first ingredients are mixed together. Add oil and knead for 10 mins under medium speed. Add finely chopped fresh coriander leaves and knead for a further 2 minutes until well blended.
  • Place the bowl in a warm place either covered with a damp cloth or cling film, and leave to rise until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Deflate the dough, then break it into 6 pieces. On a floured surface, shape each piece into a small ball. Using a rolling pin, roll out each one to a thickness of around 4mm [0.16 inch]. Leave the flatbreads to rest for 5 mins while you heat up a non-stick frying pan (or pancake pan) under high heat.
  • When the pan is very hot, place the first flatbread in it. Do not use any oil or grease, simply cook the flatbread 2 mins or so on each side until it starts to char. When done, place covered in a warm oven while you cook the rest of the flatbreads.
  • Serve warm with some chopped coriander and/or a drizzle of olive oil on top.
