Ingredients

For the flatbreads

  • 175 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 175 g natural yoghurt

For the toppings

  • 2 lamb leg steaks (approx 180g each)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.5 lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 large tomato sliced
  • 2 handfuls mixed spinach salad
  • 75 g feta crumbled
  • chill sauce (optional)

Instructions

For the flatbreads

  • Add all the flatbread ingredients into a mixing bowl and bring together, either with a dough hook on a mixer or with a spoon. 
  • Knead the dough together with your hands, but not as long as you would for bread - it just needs to come together. It's a pretty sticky mixture!
  • Leave to rest for half an hour or so if you have time, or use immediately.
  • When you're ready to cook your flatbreads, split the mixture into 3 or 4 pieces, depending on how large you want them to be. Roll the dough out until it's around 2-3mm thick.
  • Place into a hot grill pan, and cook for around 1-2 minutes on each side until slightly charred and puffed out.

For the toppings

  • Preheat a large grill/griddle pan on a high heat for 5 minutes.
  • Grind the coriander and cumin seeds in a pestle and mortar, then mix with the olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Rub this mixture onto the lamb leg steaks.
  • Place the lamb leg steaks onto one end of the large griddle pan and the sliced onions on the other. Cook the lamb for around 4 minutes on each side for meat that's just blushing in the middle. Make sure to move the onion slices around too.
  • Remove the steaks and cut into slices.
  • Top the flatbreads with the sliced tomatoes, onions, mixed spinach salad leaves, lamb and feta, then splash with chilli sauce if you like. Serve immediately rolled like a wrap.
