This Syrian bread is almost similar to pita bread, the only difference is that this is without pocket. Practically the preparation is the same as other yeast bread.
The dough is so easy to work with and these turned out amazingly fluffy and very tasty. In fact, I have pan fried half of the dough and it has puffed up beautifully but have been eaten before the photo shoot. They gone in no time !
Servings : 8
3 C all purpose flour
1 and 1/8 C warm water
2 TB vegetable oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast
Place flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl. Stir with wooden spoon.
Add in oil and gradually add the water until it forms into a dough.
Knead dough by hand for 10 minutes and transfer onto greased and covered bowl. Let sit for 1 hour.
Pinch dough down, divide into 8 balls. Roll out each ball into circle about 6 in diameter. Preheat oven @ 200 C.
