These tasty flatbreads are quick and easy and make an excellent side for curries and any meal that needs a “pusher.” They’re great with dips or folded and filled with sandwich fixin’s. They are relatively flat, but allowed to rise (chametz again). A more authentic addition to a Passover meal would be store-bought or homemade matzo bread (more like crackers).
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Rest Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 scant tsp Baking Powder about ⅔ teaspoon, I use 2 tsp for a triple recipe
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Oil olive or vegetable
  • 1/3 cup Ice Water
  • 1-3 tbsp Vegetable Oil for frying


  • Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the oil and ice water, and mix to make a soft, cohesive dough. (Add garlic or herbs to the dough if desired.) The dough should be moist but not sticky. Add water or flour by the teaspoonful if needed. Cover with plastic wrap, and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat a heavy-bottomed skillet on the stovetop. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat until the oil starts to shimmer in the pan.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. Each piece should be about the size of a large egg. Dredge each piece in flour, and roll or hand-flatten to a rough circle or oval, about 1/4″ thick.
  • Fry a flatbread in the hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and fry on the second side for another 2 minutes. Transfer from the pan to a cooling rack, then to a tea-towel-lined basket for serving. Add more oil as needed for frying successive breads.


Optional additions: ½ teaspoon garlic and/or 1 teaspoon dried herbs or 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh herbs

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
