Home-made Indian Flat Bread

Once you have tried Home-made Indian Flat Bread, I can tell you from experience, you’ll never go back to the pre-packaged highly processed stuff they sell you in the supermarkets. Home-made Indian Flat Bread are super easy to make and so delicious! The bread is soft and pliable but with a lovely crispy edge. The dough can be made and rolled into balls, then stored in glad wrap and cooked as required. A recipe well worth trying! I used my Tefal Cuisine Companion to knead the dough but if you don’t have a thermo appliance or food processor you can also knead the dough manually.


Indian Flat Bread_cuisine companion


  • 500 g flour (I used half plain flour, half self-raising flour)
  • 200 ml water
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Place all the ingredients into your Tefal Cuisine Companion mixing bowl fitted with the kneading/crushing blade (or knead the dough manually in a bowl or on a clean bench top).
  2. Launch the P1 pastry program (or manually knead the dough for about 3 minutes or until the right consistency is achieved).
  3. Form the dough into a ball, place into a bowl, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into same-sized balls.
  5. On a non-stick lightly floured surface, using a rolling-pin, roll each ball into a thin round shape about 15cm in diameter.
  6. Fry in a non-stick frying pan without any oil.
  7. Flip the bread over and ensure both sides are evenly cooked.

Baking Class in Sydney

As far as I can remember I’ve always loved baking. I’d say it’s probably because I love eating cakes! Growing-up, in France, Maman would rarely bake at home. She always worked full-time and cooking is not something she particularly enjoys. Needless to say she was also always on a diet too – ah French women!…

Tips for Growing Lavender Indoors

This summer my window sill garden is flourishing. I planted lavender seeds in early December (I’m growing lavender indoors) and my little lavender plants are making me quite proud. Lavender is a French symbol, it evokes the South of France. The smell of lavender reminds me very much of my childhood in Malves en Minervois. Every…

A Clean Home

I travel internationally a few times a year. As much as I love travelling, after a holiday, getting back into the routine can be difficult, especially for people who suffer from jet-lag as bad as I do. Over the years something I  learnt is that thoroughly cleaning your home before you head off makes the return to reality a little easier. Returning…

The Tall Lemongrass, Sydney

Upon landing in Australia back in 2009, I instantly noticed Thai cuisine is very popular here in Sydney. In France I’ve never had Thai food. My first Thai experience was in London (December 2016 to be exact). Since then, I travelled to Thailand (December 2008), and ate my way through all type of delicious Thai dishes, including…
