  • ¼ cup chopped green coriander (cilantro)
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Mix all the ingredients together and knead to make a medium-soft dough. Cover dough with a wet cloth and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Divide the dough into 17 equal balls and flatten each ball into a 6-inch disk.

Place each disk on a griddle heated to medium heat for one minute, and flip over to cook on the other side for another minute. Keep flipping until brown spots appear on bread.
