Servings 6


  • 200 g sweet potato purée
  • 200 g plain flour plus extra for rolling
  • Pinch salt optional
  • 1-2 tbsp water add slowly if needed


To make the purée

  • If you haven’t made your purée yet you will need to peel and chop your sweet potato into chunks.
  • Boil or steam for 10-12 minutes until soft.
  • Drain and allow to cool.
  • Purée with a blender or food processor until smooth.

To make the flatbreads

  • Place 200g plain flour in a large mixing bowl.
  • Use your fingertips to rub 200g cold sweet potato purée into flour until you have the consistency of breadcrumbs. Add a pinch of salt if desired.
  • Use your hands to form into a dough and if needed add a little water gradually until you have a smooth dough. Only add a little water at a time or your dough may end up sticky.
  • Roll into six small balls.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and roll out into flatbreads with a rolling pin. Dust a little flour onto your rolling pin if your dough is sticky.
  • Heat your pan over a medium heat and fry for 2 minutes on each side, turning with a spatula.
  • Serve immediately or wrap up in a clean tea towel or foil to keep soft while you cook the rest.
