Gachamiga (a type of flat bread)

Put the frying pan on the heat and add the extra virgin olive oil and heat. Once the oil is hot, add the peeled garlic and fry. Once golden, remove from the pan and put to one side.

Add the salt and the white flour to the pan until it starts to cook in the oil. Once the oil and flour are combined, add the water and stir well to get rid of any lumps. This may take some time so patience is of the essence! The water will evaporate and the dough will become firmer and more consistent.

Next, add the garlic and work the mixture with a spatula or fish slice, pressing it down and, every now and again flipping it over. If it starts to stick, add a little more oil and carry on forming the dough. Repeat this process until both sides are golden brown.
