Eventually he saw some foodpics… A friend of ours had shared some exotic breakfast which included Egg Tortillas and Poha…He went through her post and asked me to look at the same.. He was drooling over it and then put his demand forward – I want to have some exotic breakfast tomorrow which should look good as well as taste good…I was like – Okay but atleast lemme know what you want to have? He as usual replied — I don’ttttttttttttttt knowwwwwwwwwww but I want something delicious… And I was left with all open universe with no clue .. 😀 So basically Abhishek, my husband, has very different choices…Sometimes he would be settled down with a plate of simple bread-butter and sometimes even if we all put the most exotic dishes, he might not be settled. Such a person he is… 😦 Hamesha hi watt lagi rehti meri!!! 😀

I was thinking and thinking and then I thought why not prepare some exotic flatbreads along with no-oil potato wedges and fruit parfrait? I was little apprehensive but was still sure that he will love it as there will be no oil, subtle flavors and of course beautiful dishes. And here I go! 🙂

Flatbreads – A beautiful soft bread topped with your favorite toppings. Yes for me… Flatbreads are one of the most enchanting baked stuff. The way I prepare it, there is a very fine line difference between Flatbreads and Pizzas however they do taste completely different. Difference lies in the base, sauce as well as toppings. Originally,  flatbread is a bread made with flour, water and salt, and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened—made without yeast—although some are slightly leavened, such as pita bread. Some e.gs are: Naan, Parantha, Foccacia, Sheermal etc.
