Sweet potato flatbread

Breads & Quick Breads

These flatbreads are flexible and robust enough to wrap around generous fillings, even after being frozen and reheated.
Thanks to Rachel for this recipe.

These are excellent and similar to indian chappatis. I added chilli powder and chopped green fenugreek (which you can buy ready washed chopped and frozen from South Asian stores) to mine ?
