In the Kitchen

"Made these to go with a curry last night. So easy! Very tasty with the butter smeared over once cooked and a nice cheap thing to whip up to add to your meals." - Ali Leonard.


  • 2 1/2 cups of self raising flour ( plain flour and 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder)
  • 3/4 cups of any sort of milk or a plain yogurt or even just water 
  • Olive oil (or any oil you have) 
  • 1/4 tsp of salt

    For the butter:
  • 2 Tbsp of softened butter
  • Tsp of crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp finely chopped parsley


  1. Mix flour, milk (or other options) and salt to combine
  2. Knead on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes (very therapeutic) until it is nice and smooth . Divide into 4,6 or 8 portions and leave them to rest for about 15-30 mins
  3. Mix the butter, garlic and parsley.
  4. Heat large pan. Roll the pieces of dough reasonably thin. Lightly brush with oil and place in the hot pan. Cook about 2 mins each side until puffed and golden. Spread with some of the butter mix while still hot. Repeat until all cooked .
  5. Serve hot. So tasty!
