    Let me just say… if you are lucky enough to be able to find any flour during this crazy time we are living in (covid 2020) good on you! Crack on and make this delicious recipe! For those of you who literally cannot find a bag of flour anywhere you may need to wait a little longer before you can sample.

      I have made these twice now, they are lovely, done the usual garlic and coriander, and frozen some and used them, they’re great, I forgot to eat them with my curry one evening, so I used them with soup for my lunch the next day, a good alternative to bread or not having anything. 🙂

    15. Jenny says:

      I know those comments were from ages ago but I actually tried these with fat free fromage frais tonight, they were soooo good. I think I actually preferred then to when I used yogurt.

      Hopefully this helps anyone wondering the same thing in the future ?
