Cucumber Tomato Chickpeas Flat Leaf Parsley Salad & Flatbread

Turkish Salad

I cleary got all inspired by the bread in Turkey and though I have baked loaves and pizza bases before , I have never got around to making a flat bread so thought I would have a go and broke out the Casa Moro cookbook. I tweaked it a bit making 4 breads of 25cm in diameter

Pile of Bread

Flatbread Recipe

110ml of warm water
130g strong white flour( extra for dusting)
1 tablespoon of black sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Dissolve the salt in the water , gradually add into the flour .Finally add in the olive oil
Roll the dough into a sausage and cut into four
Heat a pan to a medium to high heat
Roll into a disk on a floured surface
Place the disk into the pan once bubbles appear
Turn the disk and cook the other side til it have brown spots
Do the same with the other pieces of dough

Bread in the Pan
I wanted to have something tasty and there are still some in season tomatoes around so I made a Turkish inspired salad
