Herbed Whole Wheat Piadinas & Sandwiches#SundayFunday

Piadina or Piada is a thin Italian flatbread. When we visited Italy, we enjoyed having these sandwiches. This was on my to do list, for a long time. Thanks to our Sunday Funday event wherein each Sunday a theme is chosen, we prepare dishes what our family loves. Today our host for Sunday Funday is Sue of Palatable Pastime and the theme is Roman or Italian Recipes.

Makes 9 - 10 Flatbreads - depending on the size

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1⁄4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Mixed Italian Herbs
½ Teaspoon Dried Basil
1⁄4 Teaspoon Dried Thyme
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1½ Cold Water
For the Sandwiches
Butter as required 
Lettuce Leaves
Tomato Slices - deseeded
Broccoli Tater Tots
Cheese Slices
Non Vegetarian
Thousand Island
Lettuce Leaves
Tomato Slices - deseeded
Ham Slices
Cheese Slices

Mix all the dry ingredients well. Now add the oil and again mix till the olive oil is well incorporated. Add water a little at a time and knead into a soft dough. Keep the dough aside covered for at least 15 minutes to rest.
After 15 minutes divide the dough into 9 - 10 equal balls.
Take one ball of dough and on a well dusted work surface roll it into a thin circle approximately 8 -9" round. Like wise roll all and keep aside.
Bake the bread on a medium hot skillet till golden spot appear on both side on medium low flame. 
Wrap them in a cloth and store them in a container. You can also use olive oil for frying.  These are really soft to enjoy!! 
Serve with any dish. I love them with soups or make sandwiches or enjoy them with grilled veggies.

Made sandwiches and enjoyed them for dinner. For my hubby veg, with broccoli tater tots and cheese for me with ham and cheese. 
For the Veg Sandwich 
Apply mayonnaise on the piadina, then lettuce leaves, sliced and de seed tomato , broccoli tater tots
Top it up with cheese, fold it
Grilled them in the sandwich toaster with butter.
For the Non Veg
Applied mayo, then thousand island , lettuce leaves, tomato slices, ham slices and top it with cheese then grilled them in sandwich toaster with butter.
These are yum.. yum !!

  4. What a wonderful recipe Sneha, almost looks like Indian flatbread except for the herbs in it. A sandwich you're tempting me to try out.
