Not bad at all for a first attempt. I was dreading it thinking it would be hard and crunchy but actually turned out pretty good. Smearing butter on it and wrapping in foil keeps it soft.

Made these flatbreads for the first time to take to the Indian restaurant that evening. Made four as they were so fragile to handle, they looked like the photo the taste was far nicer than the bought wraps..froze ok but to reheat they were not as pliable, I will make them again .
