Simple flatbread made without yeast.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, or more as needed
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided


Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cumin seeds, and sugar together in a large bowl.

Combine milk and 1 tablespoon oil in a small saucepan; heat over medium heat until warm, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir into flour mixture until small clumps form. Knead dough, adding more flour by the tablespoon if needed, until it is soft and smooth. Let dough rest, about 3 minutes.

Brush a large skillet with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; heat over medium-high heat. Cook circles of dough one at a time until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
