Instructions for making yeast-free tortillas

Recently, I practically do not buy bread, instead I bake crispy silk bread. He shared with me the recipe for these mouth-watering and crispy tortillas by the father-in-law. He once served in Karaganda, where he learned about them.

Shelpek flatbreads are a traditional Kazakh dish that has several varieties. Usually they make 7 silkies, sometimes 9. These cakes are prepared from only three ingredients, and you don’t need to put yeast into the dough.

Silks are fried in a pan in a few seconds, inside they are not greasy, since the dough does not absorb oil.

Today we’ll show you how to make yeast-free quick tortillas. Fry in 12 seconds!


  • 500 g flour
  • 200-220 ml. water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • vegetable oil for frying


Combine warm water with salt in a convenient container, stir. Sift the flour into a bowl and then pour the salt water into it.

Knead the dough, cover it with a towel and put it in a warm place for half an hour.

Pummel the dough, divide into 7 or 9 parts, roll a ball from each part, cover with cling film and leave for another 20 minutes.

Roll each part into a thin cake, about 3 millimeters thick.

Fry each flat cake in highly heated oil for about 5-6 seconds on each side. When frying, it is important to rotate the silk in a circle with a fork. This makes the tortillas fried better.

Transfer the scones to a paper towel to remove the grease.

That’s all, Kazakh cakes without yeast are ready. Bon Appetit!
