Turkish flatbread are one of those dishes that aren’t considered home cooking material, but trust me, these come together pretty quick and can be eat like a giant taco with a filling of your preference.
1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 small packet instant yeast
1 tablespoon superfine/caster sugar
3/4 cup thick Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- Place the lukewarm water, yeast and sugar in a bowl and allow to sit somewhere warm for 10 minutes until it is bubbling and foamy.
- Add the yogurt, olive oil and salt and stir together.
- Add the flour and combine until the dough comes together.
- Turn onto a floured surface and knead until it is no longer sticky and springs back, this will take approximately 5 minutes.
- Divide into 10 equal pieces and set aside with a clean damp towel to rest for 15 minutes.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the pieces of dough into a circle and 1/8 inch thickness and pour a little olive oil into a frying pan, heating on medium.
- Lay the flatbread dough into the frying pan and cook for 2 minutes or until golden, flip and cook the opposite side until also golden.
- Remove and set aside on your serving plate.
- Continue with the remaining flatbread dough portions.
- Serve smeared with labneh or Greek yogurt mixed with some roasted garlic and scallions and a variety of toppings from minced beef, sliced tomato, cucumber and haloumi.
