Soft unleavened flat bread recipe. A simple 4 ingredient bread recipe with a step by step guide.
An easy to follow recipe to a tasty delicious bread. This is a Yemeni flat bread recipe that I've used in making this delicious savory bread pudding
Unleavened flat bread, started out as an experiment- with no hope of success- turned out a lovely and delicious bread recipe. This flat bread is so easy to make, smells and tastes super delicious.
I have a to do list that is longer than Rapunzel's hair. Some days I wake up so overwhelmed from what I should do and so frustrated from what I did not accomplish the day before. When frustration hits here is what I usually do:
1- Sit on the couch with a cup of tea or coffee, watching TV or reading a magazine- not helpful at all.
2- Do something that is not on my to do list - or at least not my urgent to do list- not the best choice either.
So this time I've decided to go for the second option and bake some bread. I was thinking of baking some fancy bread rolls, when I remembered a reader's request long time ago.
Somebody was asking me if it was possible to make flat bread without yeast !!!. Honestly I did not know why would want to make an unleavened bread. My only thought was allergies perhaps.. but now I know better.
For those who observe Passover, they celebrate with this kind of bread. This is one of my most enjoyed aspects in being a food blogger, I always discover something new and interesting.
As most of you know last year was hard for me, so the request was forgotten unintentionally and I am really so sorry to the reader who requested this recipe. The worst part is I also cannot find the email :(. Yes, I am that disorganized, I used to be organized but somehow I lost my way this past year.
Anyways, better late than never, I've experimented with some ingredients and this recipe tastes the best and smells so amazingly delicious. Worth mentioning though that this recipe has no milk or eggs, so simple to make and with very few ingredients so let's see.
Unleavened bread recipe:
- Dry Ingredients
In the bowl of your mixer, mix all the dry ingredients well.
Add oil and mix then gradually add water until a firm consistent dough is formed. Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Cut and rest
Cut the dough into 4 equal parts, cover and let it rest again for 30 minutes.
- Shape and bake
Preheat oven to the max, putting a pizza stone or an inverted baking sheet in there to heat up as well. Roll your dough stretching it on every direction to form a 12 inch disc. Take the baking sheet out, sprinkle with some corn meal then put the dough on it. Bake for 4 minutes poking any holes that will rise.
And that's it. Enjoy it with as you would normally do with any flat bread. It smells so good and will make your kitchen smell fantastic!
