3 cups of flour (we use 1/2 normal and 1/2 wholemeal)
1 1/2tsp dry yeast
1cup warm water
Ok put all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix. Slowly add oil and water and knead for about 10 min by hand or 5min in a mixer if you are lucky enough to have one. I do. Thanks Dad XOXOX
Slightly oil the bowl and dough, cover and leave to rise for 1hr.
After an hour take our the dough and knead slightly. Divide into 8 equally and roll each into a round flat. Make them thin but not too thin. They should be about 15-20cm round.
Set aside for about 30min to rise again. I roll them out on the table and just leave them there,
You can either cook them in the oven:preheat oven to 250C and lay 2 at a time on the wire racks and cook for 4-5min until puffy and slightly browned. If they get too brown they will be crunchy. Or you can cook them in the bbq if you have one with a hood. Preheat bbq with the hood down and proceed as for the oven except on the bbq they get delicious grill marks.
When cooked remove and cover with a tea towel.
