  • A pinch of salt (optional)

Tip the chickpeas and water into a blender and whizz until smooth. Pour the mixture into a large bowl (add salt now). Slowly add the flour, stirring the mixture using a wooden spoon. As a dough begins to form use your hands to bring the mixture together. Begin kneading the dough dusting with extra flour to prevent sticking. When the dough becomes elastic from kneading place to one side in a bowl for 10 mins.

Divide the dough into roughly 8 – 10 portions. Take each portion and roll into a ball and then roll flat with a rolling pin.

Heat a non-stick frying pan to hot. Place a wrap in the pan and cook both sides flipping when the sides become browned.

Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.
