Coriander and Cumin Flat-breads

Makes 6

275g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

28g fresh coriander, finely chopped

3/4 tsp fine salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4/toasted cumin seeds

2 tbsp sunflower oil

Boil the kettle. Put all the ingredients apart from the oil into a mixing bowl and toss together. Add the oil then weigh out 150g just-boiled water and add it to the mixture. Bring everything together into a smooth dough and knead briefly. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside for 30 minutes.

Once rested divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Dust the work surface liberally with flour then roll out each portion into a thin disc, about 20cm in diameter. Set the flat-breads to one side but do not stack as they will stick together.

Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Once the pan is hot shake off the excess flour from a flat-bread and add to the pan. Dry fry for 40 secs or so per side until punctuated with dark specs. Repeat with remaining flat-breads. Stack the fried flat-breads between 2 plates in a tea towel to keep them soft. Serve warm
