Egg & mango chutney flatbreads

Forgive me if I’m boring you, but I am a massive fan of Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients cookbook. And I’m not the only one apparently as it was the one of 2017’s best selling cookbooks. Anyhow, I think this is one of the most fun recipes to make. Fun, because you make the flatbreads – which are the perfect base for the deep orange, slightly runny eggs and lashings of mouth popping red chilli. I could barely believe it only had five ingredients!

Egg & mango chutney flatbreads

Egg & mango chutney flatbreads Jamie Oliver CountryWives annabelandgraceIngredients serves 2
4 large free-range eggs
100 g self-raising flour , plus extra for dusting
6 tablespoons natural yoghurt
2 tablespoons mango chutney
1 fresh red chilli

Lower the eggs into a pan of vigorously simmering water and boil for 5½ minutes exactly, then refresh under cold water until cool enough to handle, and peel. Meanwhile, put a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. In a bowl, mix the flour with a little pinch of sea salt, 4 tablespoons of yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until you have a dough. Halve, then roll out each piece on a flour-dusted surface until just under ½cm thick. Cook for 3 minutes, or until golden, turning halfway.

Dot the mango chutney and remaining yoghurt over the breads. Halve the soft- boiled eggs and arrange on top, smashing them in with a fork, if you like. Finely slice the chilli and scatter over (as much as you dare!), drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and black pepper from a height.
