"I found this recipe in a Food Network magazine. Very easy to make and it is a great side to Oriental dishes or use as a sandwich wrap as recommended in magazine. I like using it to soak up the juices in a stir fry or the sauce in Chicken Teriyaki."

Everyone has been adjusting water in this recipe and I am no exception. I added half a cup. But all recipes and conditions as well as the flour used will vary a little bit. I did find these difficult to roll, and opted instead to pat them in my hands, slap them on the griddle and flatten with a large floured spatula. When they were done I rubbed a little extra sesame oil on for extra flavor. Delish!

Really enjoyed the flavour of the green onions in this flatbread! They are fast and easy to put together. I too had to add about another 1/4 cup water to bring the dough together. Next time I am going to use a dry pan for cooking them, like I do with the Indian roti. I served them with a steaming bowl of soup for our dinner. Another wonderful recipe Bea!

I loved these. I am rating them on the flavour only since I used the bread machine to make the dough. I did have to increase the water quite a bit to just over three quarters of a cup. They tasted great and were easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe.
