Flatbread used to be one of my favorite breakfast back home in China. I do not know how it is made, and I believe its recipe is way more complicated than mine.
My flatbread recipe is a much simplified version. I made it up based on my memory of the taste, and it is indeed easy, and tastes good.
5.Wheat or white flour
Mix all the dry ingredients together, including:
1. Flour (2 cups)
2. Salt (1&1/2 tbsp)
3. Baking soda (1/2 tbsp)
4. Garlic powder
5. Curry powder
6. Black pepper
7. Cumin seeds
8. Sesame seeds
Mix one egg with honey, oil (2 tbsp), and green onions. (Green onions could be added either in the first or the second step.)
Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. Stir with a spoon.
Pour milk into the mixture. (A little at a time.)
Add some more milk, and stir again.
...Until the mixture is able to form a dough, which is not too sticky.
Knead the dough until smooth. Roll it into a sausage shape. (It is easier to roll if you divide the dough in half.)
Cut the dough into several equal pieces.
Sprinkle some flour on the chopping broad.
Take one piece, and flatten it into a rectangle shape. (A rolling pin is not necessary. I did it with my hands.)
Flatten the rest the same way.
Put the pan over medium heat until it turns very hot. (Usually costs 2 to 3 minutes.)
Place two pieces at a time in the dry pan.
When the bottom turns brown, flip them over. Cook until the bread rises a bit, and both sides get brown and crispy.
Usually, it takes 2 to 3 minutes to fully cook them. After the first two, repeat the same procedure for the rest ones.
While cooking, the pan is gradually getting hotter, and thus the bread would get cooked much more quickly by the end.
Therefore for the rest half, you may consider cooking over low or medium-low heat.
Eating those flatbread only may taste dry, so why not try with some cold milk. The two complement each other well and taste rather perfect.
