There are 10 things you can do with flour: It’s not just baking!

1. Dumpling skins

It is easy to prepare, and kids love it. The filling can be made from whatever you like. I have used whatever I had and called it quits in the past.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt

  • Combine to make a smooth dough. Allow the gluten to rest for approximately 15 minutes. Take small pieces at a stretch and roll them into a thin sheet. To cut the wrappers, use something round.
  • Wrappers can be filled with meat and vegetables. Close the edges. You can cook the vegetables in either a steamer, a boiling pot, or a pan with some oil and water. If you have soy sauce, serve with it.

2. Flatbread

Do you not have yeast? Are you out of baking powder and baking soda? Don’t worry, and you can make anything with flour and water. If you have salt, add some.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt

  • Mix. Let rest for about 10-15 minutes. Make a smaller ball of the dough. As thin as you can. Place your rolled dough in a pan. Cook both sides.
  • Optional — You can add garlic, yogurt or milk (replace the water proportionately) and spices to your original ball. This will give bread its flavour and dimension.

3. Tortillas

Similar to the flatbread but without the additions. It can be used as a wrap for other foods or eaten. They can be made into tortilla chips if you cook them on low heat for a longer time.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt

  • Mix. Let rest for about 10-15 minutes. As thin as you can. Place your rolled dough in a pan. Cook both sides.

4. Paratha

It is a flaky flatbread. Paratha is an Indian version, but there are other versions. It is flour mixed with salt and rolled into a long, flat strip. Then it is squished to make a disc.

How to make:

2 parts flour + 12 cup water + pinch salt + pinch sugar

(I hope you see a trend with the base recipe for many of my flour-related cooking …)

  • Mix. Leave to rest for about 10-15 minutes. Make a long snake shape. It should be curled. Flatten it. Place in a skillet. Cook both sides. Add herbs such as chives to the Asian version and fry in oil.

5. Naan

Here’s a recipe you can make with yeast if you don’t have bread-making equipment. Don’t worry too much about this. This is usually a good thing.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt + pinch of yeast

  • Mix the yeast with a little water. Add some flour, and let it sit for 10 minutes. If the yeast bubbles, it is working. It doesn’t matter if it bubbles; make the rest of your recipe without yeast. To make the naan softer, you can substitute water for milk or yogurt. In a skillet, cook the dough.

6. Frybread

The naan recipe is the same, except it doesn’t contain milk or yogurt. Make your ball by adding any herbs or spices. You can substitute yeast with banking powder.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt + pinch sugar + pinch of yeast/or bread powder + any spices or herbs

  • Combine everything and make a ball. Make a long snake from the mixture. Then roll the snake into a long, flat disc. Add oil to a pan. Cook the disc until it turns golden brown.

7. Crepes

This is a good option if you don’t want to use too many flours.

How to make:

1 part flour + 2 portions water or milk + pinch salt and sugar

  • Mix everything. The mixture should be very runny. Heat it and coat it with butter or oil to make your pan nonstick. Put some in the pan. Turn the pan upside down and swirl it around until it is evenly distributed across the surface. Serve.

8. Noodles

Noodles are one of the best things you can do with flour. This recipe has been used in many meals, including a full meal for my mother-in-law. It’s easy. I promise.

How to make:

1 part flour + 1/4 part water + pinch salt

  • Mix all ingredients and let it rest for 15 minutes. It is best to leave it for as long as possible (overnight would be a good choice). This makes the noodles elastic. Roll the dough out as thinly as possible to prevent the dough from sticking to your surface. Slice the noodles into strips and place them in a saucepan of boiling water. Cook for 5-10 minutes. Once the noodles are cooked, they will double in thickness.

9. Pasta

You’re either going to love it or not. This is the same principle as making noodles, except you don’t need to leave it too long. Once you have the base sheet, it’s possible to make ravioli or tortellini. This is an Italian version of dumplings.

How to make:

1 egg + 1 Cup flour (yes, the recipe has measurements) + 1/8th of a cup of water

  • Mix everything and form a ball. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes. You can roll it into a sheet or use it as a base for ravioli or tortellini. In this case, you will need fillings. You can also cut it into strips to make fettuccini or lasagna strips. The base is the same, but the shape is slightly different. Boil the pasta in hot water. You can also cook it in boiling water.

10. Steamed buns

It is also known as Bao Buns in Chinese. It can be served plain, or you can fill it up with anything. I don’t care too much about the taste of food. The filling is usually a mixture of ground meat and vegetables with a little soy sauce.

How to make:

1 tbsp dried yeast + 1 cup flour + 1/4 cup baking powder + pinch salt + five pinches sugar + 1/6 cups water + 1/6 cup milk

  • Start your yeast. Combine everything. Combine everything and form a ball. Allow it to double in size. Divide into smaller balls. You can add fillings to each ball by making a disc. Allow it to double again. It should be cooked for about 15 to 20 min.
