Corn & Fenugreek Flatbread


Corn & Fenugreek Flatbread

I just love the nutty and subtle sweet flavor of corn flour. This flatbread recipe is filling and satisfying, yet light on your stomach, and it goes perfectly with my Mustard Greens Saag and my Mashed Roasted Eggplant Dip. It also freezes very well, so I often make a big batch and save some for later!
