Recipe For Griddled Flatbreads

With the internet not playing friendly during my leave break nothing has gone to plan. I’ve been writing my blog drafts on my BlackBerry and hoping against hope to have enough access to the internet to post something. My blog has been so quiet that it has also had a vacation. Knowing I’m away for 10 days in January means that normal service will resume only in February. I wanted to get all my recipes onto ziplist (even though it has a gremlin) and I also updated the look of my blog. A few minor changes and I can say that I’m finally happy with it. I’ve taken off all my badges and certificates and as soon as I can I will add them into the actual post they relate to! In the meantime I’ve been cooking up a storm and my dishwasher has been working overtime. My first challenge completed for 2013 is for griddled flatbreads. These can be served straight off the grill or kept until cool. Dave and I had them for dinner with some chilli infused chicken livers.

did you take an internet break in December?

  2. Tandy, I love cumin. The smell always reminds me of a locker room at half time but the flavor is divine. These breads look wonderful. Susie

  21. Tandy, these look fabulous – I don’t have a bread machine but will definitely try these by hand. I have just printed your recipe.
    I am also slowly starting up again from today after taking some time off over the festive season.

  22. I’m a real fan of flatbreads. I cook the basic flatbread from the Moro Cookbook often. Not having a bread maker, I guess I’ll carry on making them by hand:)

  23. Gosh, writing blog drafts on your blackberry sounds a real pain :-/ These flatbreads look lovely. A perfect braai accompaniment. I love the sound of using cumin seeds. I usually use fennel seeds on mine.

    1. I think fennel seeds and celery seeds will be good – and I want to make them on the braai next time. It is quite challenging to write the posts on my cell phone, but I did not want to try and come back to work and type them all up then 🙂
