127

As summer has finally arrived and the BBQ has been out a few times, I wanted to make nice easy flatbread that would be great to eat with summer meals and BBQ’s. My inspiration for this bread came from a local takeaway, who’s Naan bread had a really lovely sweetness to it. The Naan was also really fluffy and had a good chewiness.

What is flatbread?

Flatbread is a type of bread that is made from dough that has been cooked on a hot surface such as an iron griddle, a frying pan, or a flat stone.

The first recorded evidence of flatbreads was found in ancient Egypt. Flatbreads were also used in ancient Greece and Rome. Flatbreads are still popular in many cultures today.
