Sweet Potato Stuffed Flatbread

Yields: 4 flatbreads

Time: 30 minutes prep, 10 minutes cooking, 40 minutes total



For the dough

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Brightland ALIVE Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water


For the filling

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato (about 3 potatoes)
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Brightland ALIVE Olive Oil, for frying
  • Chutney or plain yogurt, for dipping



  1. Make the dough—In a medium bowl, mix together flour and salt. Add oil and water and stir with a fork until water is absorbed. Mix with hands until dough begins to form, adding water a tablespoon at a time if mixture seems too dry. Turn dough out onto a work surface and knead until smooth and elastic—about 3 to 5 minutes. Form dough into a ball, cover, and rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°F.


  1. Make the filling—Place all filling ingredients in a medium bowl and mix to combine evenly.


  1. Stuff the flatbreads—Divide dough into 4 equal pieces, working with one at a time and keeping the rest covered. Shape dough into ball and roll out on a lightly floured surface into an 8-inch circle. Spread 1/4 of the filling over half of the circle, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Brush the unfilled border with a little water and fold the other half of dough over filling. Press firmly around the edges to ensure a tight seal. Continue stuffing the rest of the flatbreads.


  1. Fry the flatbreads—Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 stuffed flatbreads and fry, pressing down gently on edges to ensure even browning. When underside is golden brown—about 2 minutes—flip and cook the other side for a minute or two, until golden and crispy. Transfer to a cooling rack over a sheet pan and place in warm oven while you cook the second batch. Serve hot with a side of yogurt or chutney for dipping.



Can’t find garam masala? Swap in curry powder or try adding 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin and 1/4 teaspoon allspice.

Mix it Up! Our versatile flatbreads work great with a variety of mashed veggies. Yukon Golds to pumpkin, cauliflower to broccoli—it’s all good!
