INGREDIENTS

  • 10g instant yeast
  • 5ml sugar
  • 190ml warm water
  • 125ml warm milk
  • 15ml olive oil
  • 5ml salt
  • 420g (750ml) cake flour
  • Olive oil

METHOD

Use the dough hook of your electric mixer. Place the yeast, sugar, water, milk, olive oil and salt into the bowl of the mixer. Mix well for about 1 minute. Add the flour and mix again at low speed. Once a dough forms, knead the dough for 10 minutes in the mixer.

Brush the dough with a little olive oil and cover the bowl with cling wrap. Let the dough rise until double in size. Remove the dough and place onto a floured surface. After kneading the dough, divide it into 6 parts. Roll out each of these parts thinly into an oval shape.

Heat a Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick Ribbed Square Grill over a medium heat. Place one bread at a time in the pan. Grill for about 1 – 2 minutes on one side until bubbles appear on top of the bread, and golden char line marks are visible when turned over. Grill for another minute.

Place the bread on a clean kitchen towel and cover with another kitchen towel. This will keep the breads soft and warm. Repeat with the rest of the breads. Serve the breads with slow-roasted lamb, hummus, cucumber with yoghurt, and roasted vegetables.
