The pitta bread of Pakistan! This beautiful flat bread can be served with dips, or enjoyed with a curry instead of rice. The key to this recipe is rolling the flat breads as thinly as possible, otherwise they will end up looking like naan. Adding oil while rolling ensures easy rolling, without the dough shrinking.

Once you’ve cooked them, keep your flat breads in a bamboo basket or on a clean tea towel or wire rack, to avoid soggy bases.
