Mint flat bread recipe

Try this  crunchy homemade flat bread and I promise you won't buy any from the shops again. This is a perfect accompaniment to the lamb kofta recipe. 

4 tablespoons of extra virgin oil
200g of strong flour or all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of dry yeast
1 teaspoon of caster sugar 
Half a teaspoon of salt
150g of chopped fresh mint
125ml of warm water 

In a cup, add the yeast, sugar,  salt  and warm water. 
Mix everything together till well combined and leave for about 10-15minutes or till a froth forms. 

Using a mixer
Add the flour, mint and olive oil 
Mix till you have a breadcrumb consistency. 
Add the frothy yeast mixture  and mix till you have an elastic dough. This should take about 7 minutes.

Using your hand
Wash your hands clean.
In a bowl sift the flour , add the olive oil and mint. 
Mix well till you have a breadcrumb consistency.
Add the frothy yeast mixture and mild into a ball. 
On a clean floured surface knead the bread mix for about 10-15 minutes or until you have an elastic texture. 

Place the bread in a bowl or leave it in the mixer bowl. Cover with a cling film and leave to rise for an hour and a half. Once the bread has doubled in size, knead it for 2 minutes and cut into 4 equal parts. 

On a floured surface roll your bread flat as shown below

Place a non stick frying pan on a high heat and add your flat bread. 

Cook for a minute and a half on each side 

Serve immediately with your favourite Burger or Kofta
