Sweet Potato Flatbread / Roti – the oldest and easiest bread to make; vegan, fat-free, full of fibers.
I couldn’t wait to try it out. I boiled my sweet potatoes in water. It is better to boil or steam them, as baked sweet potatoes may be a little too dry. Peel the potatoes and mash them. They should still be quite warm because it makes flatbread softer. If you have already cooked sweet potatoes which are cold, you can reheat them prior to making this recipe.
It is so simple and easy to make the flatbread, probably the oldest type of bread in the world. You combine equal parts of mashed sweet potatoes and all-purpose flour. Knead until you get soft dough. Divide the dough into 6 parts. Roll each part into a round shape.
Keep your cooked flatbread in a kitchen napkin for it to stay soft.
This type of flatbread is very mild tasting. If you like, you can add various spices to the mixture.
