Flat breads or wraps are very simple and easy to make. I always use this simple recipe to make wraps with whole meal flour. If you use wholemeal flour only thing is you will need extra water for kneading.

Try adding different ingredients to the dough to make it healthy as possible. I use the kibble mix or even soy and linseed, sesame, wheat germ or flax meal. While you are enjoying a healthy wrap gets lots of fibre and nutritions too.

Leaving the dough to rest helps to make nice and even wraps. Rolling becomes much easier too. You can add any oil to your choice. i like using coconut and olive oil always to get the benefits.

My mum used to add some green leaves to it to make the flat breads more healthy.  Filling can be done according to your personal choice. If you like meal  or fish can add them while vegetarians can have options like tofu or pickled vegetables with the fresh veggies. Even this bread can be used with dips or curried to dunk in.

You need to be near the solve all the time. I have a friend who uses her sandwich press to make square or rectangular roti  as she is so lazy to stand near the stove. 😀  Isn’t that a clever idea. 😀

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
