Traditional Somali flatbread – soft inside and crispy outside – and great for sopping up sauces!


  • 1 cup Liberation Farms Cornmeal

  • 1 cup Maine Grains Organic Sifted All-Purpose Flour

  • 2 1⁄4 cups warm water, less or more as desired

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp oil – with more for cooking


  • In a mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients.
  • Add the oil and just enough of the warm water to form a dough.
  • Add more cornmeal and flour if too sticky, or more water if too dry.
  • Use dough immediately or let rest for up to one day before use (keep in bowl covered and kept in fridge).
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal parts, flatten with you hands to a, roughly, 4″ circle.
  • In a skillet, or on a griddle, set to medium heat fry each flatbread in oil till golden on both sides – about 4-5 minutes.
