My secret to inventing new recipes – being lazy and not having certain food groups at home. I realize that for most people baking bread does not qualify as being lazy, but if you ask me, spending 20 minutes on bread baking requires less energy compared to running out to the store to get bread. So this recipe was invented on one of those Saturday mornings when I was all out of baked goods, was in the mood for bread, and simultaneously I needed to use up some coconut milk in my fridge.
The two main ingredients here are coconut milk and plain flour. The recipe is also extremely easy to remember because flour and coconut milk are required in equal amounts. Add in a dash of baking powder for extra fluff and some seasonings and you are almost done!
On this particular Saturday morning, the coconut flatbreads were a part of breakfast, but they are also awesome sides for curries, stews, soups – whatever you usually eat with a side of bread as they are really good for mopping up the sauce. And feel free to play around with the seasoning – my favorite combo for many dishes is green onion, coriander, and chili flakes and I use them here too, but feel free to go crazy and invent your own combinations – turmeric, lemongrass, caraway seeds…..options are endless!
Simple & Easy Coconut Flatbreads
Cooking time: 20 minutes
5 oz all-purpose flour
5 oz coconut milk
½ tsp baking powder
Salt to taste
Extras – chopped green onions, coriander, chili flakes
A tiny bit of oil
Chop the herbs you are using and mix all the ingredients to a rough dough. No need to knead the dough, only mix until it comes together.
Heat the pan to medium-high heat.
Divide the dough to 4, roll one piece at a time to a ball, and squeeze it flat with oily hands.
Bake for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Keep warm under a kitchen towel until you are ready to eat them.
