Our resident chef Joe has put together this recipe for wood fired flat breads that we know you’ll love! They’re super easy to make and the perfect accompaniment for any curry.
- 125ml water
- 200g plain flour, plus extra for rolling and cooking
- 1tbsp toasted cumin seeds
- 20g butter
Firstly, fire up your wood fired oven to it’s optimum temperature and maintain the temperature with a rolling flame at around 400°C.
Next, heat a high heat pan in your oven until very hot. Carefully, add your butter to the pan to create a ‘Beurre Noisette.’ You need to allow the butter to almost burn- it should go brown, bitty and smell slightly nutty. Set the pan aside.
Then, put your flour, water and cumin seeds in a bowl and mix together until a dough begins to form. Add your Beurre Noisette to the mix and work until you have a fairly dry dough. You can always add more flour to your mix if necessary.
Ball your dough and wrap tightly in cling film. Place your dough in your fridge to rest for at least an hour.
When you’re ready to cook, section your dough into golf sized balls and then roll out as thinly as possible- you can do this in a pasta machine if you have one!
Once rolled out, pat some flour onto both sides of your flat bread and cook in your wood fired oven for around 30-40 seconds. They should puff up like pillows and begin to colour when they’re ready.
Serve warm with a curry or simply with some spiced chutneys or a yoghurt dip.
