  3. Mix heavily until a wet dough is achieved.
  4. Knead for 2mins by hand.
  5. Put the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place for 1 hour to double in size.
  6. To make the hummus, add the chickpeas, lemon, grated garlic clove, cumin, coriander and salt to a blender.
  7. As it is blending to a paste, slowly add the sesame oil until a smooth puree consistency is achieved
  8. To make the yoghurt, place the yoghurt in a j-cloth or clean towel, rest in a sieve over a bowl, and leave in the fridge for 2 hours for the excess water content to drip into the bowl.
  9. Mix the thickened yoghurt with the harissa paste, season with salt and lime. 
  10. Tip the dough onto a floured bench and knock it back . Cut the dough into 6.
  11. Use hands to flatten it out shapes about 1 cm thick.
