Taftan Bread Recipe @

Taftan or taftoon  is a  leavened bread  hailed from Persia,  baked in a clay oven.

I  discover this flatbread while watching a cookery show on television,   I  did some research. found out that it  could be made without yeast with just water. milk or yogurt salt and whole wheat flour.   My Taftan Bread  recipe adapted  from various sources use yeast, milk and oil.

The dough was really sticky and hard to shape.  You can add some flour by a tablespoon but not too much otherwise it turns really hard.

On a floured board, roll out each ball into a circle.  thin it out  so the edges are thicker. Prick the dough  with fork leaving the sides.

I can't believe how much better this  Taftan Bread  tastes than takeaway flatbread, even my hubby wanted more!.
