How to make Moroccan flatbread with spices
Make this flatbread with your kitchen machine as this is the easiest way to get a consistent dough.
Put the flour in the kitchen machine. Add the cumin, cilantro, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk the flour a couple of times to make sure all the spices are evenly combined with the flour.
Now add the water slowly to the flour until it forms a ball. Take the dough ball out of your kitchen machine and put it on a dusted wooden board.
Knead the dough about half a minute by hand and wrap it in cling foil. Set aside for at least 30 minutes so the dough can rest.
Then take the dough out of the foil and cut into 6 if you want large flatbreads or 8 if you want small flatbread tortillas.
Roll the dough balls into a tortilla shape and heat a skillet until hot. You do not need any oil for this recipe just put the tortilla in the skillet and let it bake for about a minute.
The flatbread will puff up which is normal. Turn and let the other side bake for about a minute as well.
Keep warm on a plate covered by a kitchen towel. Serve immediately.

- Store in a ziplock bag on your counter for a day or two.

- My preferred way of storing flatbread is to put it in the freezer in a ziplock bag. Thaw when you want to use it.
You can heat the flatbread in a skillet for half a minute per side or warm in the oven wrapped in aluminum foil.
Heat them in a preheated oven at 400℉ for about 5-7 minutes. Wrap them in aluminum foil to prevent the flatbreads from drying out in the oven.
