  • 300 g (2 cups) plain / all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 50 g (3 ½ tbsp) butter
  • 185 ml (3/4 cup) milk


Measure the dry ingredients

  • Measure the flour and salt and add them to a small bowl.

Add the wet ingredients

  • Weigh the butter and milk (we always weigh liquids using the ml setting on our scales as it’s more accurate) and put them in a bowl together.
  • Pop them in the microwave until the butter has melted and the milk has warmed up a little.

Make the dough

  • Sprinkle a little flour down on the work surface and knead the dough for a minute or two. It doesn’t need too much kneading. If the dough is too wet, add a little extra flour.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal sized pieces. Roll the dough out into thin (less than 0.5mm thick) circles.

Cook the flat breads

  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and cook the flat breads, one at a time, for a few minutes on either side. They should bubble up a little as they cook. They’re ready, when they’ve turned golden, crisped up a little and have some dark spots.
  • Keep the flat breads warm under a clean towel while you cook the remaining breads.
