• 1kg plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 500ml-800ml water



  1. In a large bowl mix together: flour, salt and water. Mix and knead into a dough ball into the consistency of bread dough.
  1. In a separate smaller bowl mix together: yeast, sugar and 200-300ml water and allow the yeast to rise.
  1. Pour the yeast into the dough and mix together allowing as much air as possible to enter the dough ball as you mix them.
  1. Make individual circular shaped breads and flatten to a thickness of 2-3cm.
  1. Lightly coat the breads with oil on both sides then place in the oven at 180’C for approx. 30mins or until risen and golden-brown.



  • Wholemeal flour can be used instead of or mixed with plain flour
  • Put oil on the palm side of the hands while make the dough balls instead of coating them separately.
  • After flattening the individual dough pieces, add wheat grain coat on the bottom side before placing in the oven to stop it sticking
  • Nigella seeds can be added to the dough for an aromatic flavor.
