How to make flatbreads for curry
These coconut milk flatbreads are so easy to make. Add the flour to your bowl with a pinch of salt. Add the coconut milk and mix until it forms a soft dough. Transfer to a floured surface and divide into eight pieces. Roll each piece into a ball then flatten with your hand, and press with your fingertips for a rippled effect.
Add the oil and butter to the frying pan on medium heat and add the flatbreads one batch at a time. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

What goes with coconut flatbreads?
These flatbreads go great with any type of curries, such as Easy And Super Tasty Vegetarian Rogan Josh Curry, but you can also have them with soups.
