Method

 

Sift the flour, bicarb and salt into a bowl, then stir in the buttermilk, warm water and olive oil. Mix well to combine.

Divide dough into 6 small balls; roll out each ball into a thin oval shape.

Heat a pan, brush bread with oil, and cook for 1–1½ minutes on each side in the pan. Remove and sprinkle with rock salt.

For the ostrich, place the mince and spices into a bowl, season well and stir to combine. Roll the mince into 24 small balls.

Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add the meatballs and cook until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.

For the peppers:

Drizzle with olive oil and red wine vinegar; season well.

To assemble:

Place a flatbread on a plate, top with peppers, meatballs, red onions, yoghurt and rocket.
