Maria Vannelli RD
1½ cups minus 1 tablespoon
⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons, room temperature
additional flour for dusting wooden board
In a small bowl, whisk the flour with ⅛ teaspoon of salt. Set aside.
In a larger mixing bowl, place 100 mL of room temperature water along with a couple of tablespoons of the dry ingredients.
Start whisking together with a fork.
Slowly incorporate a few more tablespoons of flour and keep whisking together.
When approximately half of the flour mixture is incorporated, add 1 tablespoon of oil.
Use your hands to knead in the rest of the flour, a few tablespoons at a time.
Once you have a ball of dough, knead for approximately 2-3 minutes.
Cover with plastic film and allow to rest for about 30 minutes at room temperature. It can also be refrigerated overnight.
Cover ball of dough with plastic film. Allow to rest for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
Divide the dough into 8 sections. Roll out each section in a ball.
Dust wooden board and rolling pin lightly with flour.
Roll out each ball of dough into a 6 inch round disc -about 1/8 inch thick.
Continue to roll out the other balls of dough (discs can be stacked, separated with a piece of parchment paper).
Heat a large grill pan, cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
Add the rolled out dough.
Cook until charring occurs, about 1- 2 minutes. Adjust heat accordingly.
Turn over and continue to cook for an additional 1 minute.
Transfer stovetop flatbread to a baking sheet. Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the dough.
Serve immediately (while still warm) with your favorite fillings.
The idle time of 30 minutes makes the dough easier to roll out.
By using a nonstick skillet, there is no need to use butter or oil.
Adjust heat to get a nicely charred bread.
Garnish with your favorite herbs and spices.
This flatbread is best the day you make it.
