  • Homemade Flatbreads:

  • 300g plain flour, plus extra for rolling

  • Large pinch of sea salt

  • 50ml olive oil

  • 185ml milk

  • 3-4 tsp sunflower or rapeseed oil for cooking

Cooking Method

1. Mix all the flatbread ingredients (except the oil) to form a dough. You should be able to work it with your hands, if it is sticky add a little more flour. Knead briefly, wrap in cling film and rest it for 30 minutes at room temperature. The dough will keep in the fridge for a few days at this stage.
2. Cut the dough into 8 pieces and roll each into an oval shape.
3. In a heavy based frying pan, heat a teaspoon of oil and griddle the flatbreads until they’re golden, puffed and slightly charred each side. Do not crowd the pan, cook 1 – 2 at a time.
4. Set aside cooked flatbreads on a lightly moistened tea towel to keep them warm.
5. To serve dress the rocket with olive oil and lemon juice and season with a little sea salt – to your taste.
6. Assemble your flatbreads by adding the rocket, lamb, pomegranate seeds and salsa verde to the flatbread pocket and secure with a small skewer.
