Garlic Herb Flatbread
I can’t get enough of this Garlic Herb Flatbread recipe! Do I love it because it’s simple? Or because it’s done in one bowl without a mixer? Or because it’s perfect for soaking up and mopping up all that gorgeously rich curries and dips? All of the above! Warm, pillowy soft, garlic- and herb-infused, these flatbreads are mouthwateringly delicious. You’ll find it hard to stop at one.
Start by mixing your flour, yeast, garlic, herbs, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, then pour in the oil and about ½ a cup of warm water. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding another splash of water if the dough looks too dry. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. This will take about 2 minutes. Roll the dough into a ball and place it in an oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough sit until doubled in size. Divide the dough into 6 even pieces. Using a rolling pin, flatten each portion of dough into a disk. Cook the flatbreads, one at a time, in a hot cast iron skillet until bubbly and golden. Put a half dozen of these freshly baked flatbreads under a clean dish towel to keep them warm, and serve alongside your favorite Indian-inspired dishes, dips, and grilled meats.

Steps to make Garlic Herb Flatbread
Combine dry ingredients
Transfer to oiled bowl
Heat cast iron skillet
When the skillet is hot, add a piece of the rolled-out dough to the hot skillet and cook for 2 ½ minutes or until the top starts to bubble and the bottom turns lightly golden. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes on the other side. Remove from the skillet and wrap in a clean dish towel. Repeat, adding more oil to coat the surface, if needed.
