Beautiful looking flatbread, nice instructional photos as well. One question please: I have an electric glass-top range, do you have to puff them up? If so, should I put them on the stove over the element?
Thank You.

I guess you may want to add a twitter icon to your website. I just marked down the blog, although I had to complete this by hand. Simply my suggestion.
