BATBOUT/MEKHEMAR – MOROCCAN PITA BREAD (SOUR AND SWEET VERSION) ;)

May 10, 2019

Today I will share with you recipe from my husban’s family on cool, simple and fast moroccan pita bread. I know two versions. One is sweet and other is sour. This delicious bread can be formed as small or big pita bread, that depends on you πŸ˜‰ You can find both in Morocco;) The best is that the recipe on cake is this same, just the difference is in frying. Let’s get this party started πŸ˜‰

How much time does it take?
Preparation – 25 minutes.
Frying – 15 minutes.

Ingredients:

  1. Flour – 2 cups;

  2. Semolina (kaszka manna) – 1 cup;

  3. Salt – just a little bit;

  4. Sugar – 2 small spoons (I am not using teaspoon or tablespoon just to make it more clear hehe);

  5. Oil – 2 big spoons;

  6. Yeast – 1 spoon of dry ones or 1/3 package of fresh ones ( 35 g);

  7. Remember to add warm water (3/4 cup) to yeast πŸ˜‰

Put flour, semolina, salt, sugar and oil in the bowl. Prepare yeast. Take a cup with warm water (not hot, around 40 degrees C) and put yeast, mix, cover and let it rest for a while.
When yeast are ready, put them in the bowl with rest our ingredients and mix everything using hand. When cake is ready and don’t stick to the hand, form a ball, cover it with cloth and leave for 10 minutes.
Spread cake on small, flat balls (or bigger one like on picture; all pictures in metaslider below text) and let it rest for another 10 minutes.
Ok, now you are ready to do the final step. If you want pita bread which you will stuff with for ex. meat, cheese, tomatoes etc., take a good, non sticky pan and reheat it without any oil or other fats. Fry on small fire until it’s brown from both sides. Sour version is made without fats.
If you fancy something sweet, reheat your non sticky pan with few spoons of oil and fry bread on small fire until it’s brown from both sides. Now spread with powder sugar, chocolate or honey. It tastes similar to doughnats.

It is super delicious, believe me πŸ˜‰
Heaven in the mouth hehehe
