Here’s his recipe:
Navajo Flatbread: Makes 6
2 cups flour
1 – 1 1/4 cup of lukewarm water
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon oil/butter/shortening
“Mix dry ingredients together and add most water, mix and add water until it has the consistency of tacky pizza dough,” James explained.
“Knead for a few minutes. Let rest in a greased bowl for 30- 60 minutes.”
“Divide into 6 pieces and roll out on floured surface thin. (Tortilla thickness) Heat griddle to 350F.”
“Cook until golden brown spots and flip, cooking until done. They can be made ahead and kept under a floured towel or frozen for later use. Hope this helps.”
People commented on his post with some other ideas for how to make the bread. One woman said, “It’s ‘Indian chapati‘ cooked fresh in India everyday usually with each meal in all the homes. Wheat flour is used and we stuff veggie and spices inside to make it more nutritious and tasty.”
Another person added that they will be, “adding onion powder & minced dried onions…plus 1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash.”
Someone else added, “I’ve always made these but fried in more oil so they’re really soft and golden brown. They’re delicious, especially with taco seasoned ground beef/toppings.”
In the event you don’t have any flour, you might be able to make some of your own at home, too.
If you can get your hands on some wheat berries (to make wheat flour) or rye berries (to make rye flour) you can grind them down in a coffee grinder or a blender.
Alternatively, you can use oatmeal to make oat flour.
