Flatbread Ingredients

  • Self-Rising Flour- Self-rising flour is a type of flour that has been premixed with a leavening agent and salt. If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own with the directions below.
  • Yogurt- I recommend using plain yogurt, although you can use Greek yogurt if you’d like to make this recipe with more protein. Be sure the yogurt is plain and not sweetened.
  • Olive oil- A little oil helps create a soft texture in the dough. I also used a little extra oil brushed on the bread for even more flavor. You can substitute it with avocado oil or any neutral oil.
  • Salt or seasonings- This is optional, but if you want to add salt or seasonings to the dough for more flavor, you can do that before baking.

What is Self Rising Flour?

Self-rising flour is a type of flour that has been premixed with a leavening agent and salt. It is typically made from a combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. The leavening agent in self-rising flour is usually baking powder, a mixture of baking soda, and a dry acid, such as cream of tartar. When self-rising flour is combined with liquid, the baking powder reacts with the acid and produces carbon dioxide gas, which helps to leaven the flatbread dough and give it a light and fluffy texture.

How to Make Self-Rising Flour

Self-rising flour is simple to make at home. The ratio is 1 cup of all-purpose flour mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. This makes slightly more than 1 cup of self-rising flour.

The Best Type of Air Fryer

I’ve had a few different air fryers, but my favorite is the Ninja Foodi Grill because it has a large basket and it can bake, air fryer, roast, and dehydrate. If you have limited counter or storage space, you may want to choose a smaller air fryer. But I recommend getting the largest one you can comfortably store if you plan to cook for a crowd or want to be able to cook larger items. You don’t want the food to be crowded in the basket, so the larger basket, the more food you can make.
