Leeks Pancake

Leeks pancakes are so simple and easy to make. You can always make them with spring onions too. These are a crunchy pancake that you can make as a larger batch and freeze to take out when ever you want.

Cut the pancakes in to triangles and serve as a side or as a snack.

Wash and cut the leeks as fine as you can. ( Don’t process or chop in a machine) Add enough salt and pepper and also a table spoon full olive oil or butter in to it.

Take a cup of flour with enough salt and warm water. The water temperature should be about 60-70c.  Add the warm water bit by bit and knead the dough until smooth.

Take the dough out and cut the the dough to equal parts. Make balls and cover it with a clean tea towel and leave 1/2 ah hour on the bench to rest.

Take one ball out and roll it to a circular shape. Butter or oil the surface of the circle.

Put the prepared leek mix in the middle and roll it and make a coil.

Press down the prepared coil and roll using a rolling pin.

Cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve hot with a curry , chutney, yogurt or a dip.

Mashed Potato & Spinach Stuffed Flat Bread

 

Flat Breads are so easy to make. Takes only few minutes. If you can mash the potatoes and make the filling when you are free , this is so simple to make on a busy week day. Just add the filling and making it flat only. As they are yeast free it comes nice and crusty.

You can add different flours and make it really healthy too. I added spelt whole meal flour and plain flour. You can use few spoons full of other flours to make it more healthy. Fillings can be done in your way with what ever in your fridge.

This will be good to keep a day or too in fridge to take to work or use it again. Will not be good in freezing.

Home made wraps from scratch

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. 😀
