    tiriola's Note:

    I got the basic recipe for this from La Dolce Vegan, but found it to be quite flavourless. I played around with some spices and got this recipe, which my whole family loves. Hope you like it too! This recipe can be easily doubled, tripled, ect. Do not change the resting time.

    • 1/2 teaspoon salt

      This was very easy, and tasted great. I used it to scoop up butter chicken. YUM!

      I was making Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken (Crock-Pot Chicken With Black Beans & Cream Cheese) and wanted something like a tortilla for a side/vessel for the chicken. I found a tortilla recipe, but this is even better because it's so flavorful! I may never buy store-bought tortilla/flat breads ever again! Thanks so much for sharing!
