Not only is this beauty stunning to look at. l really think it is easy to make at home and it’s sooooo Delish! I wanted to create a bread that people would actually make at home. I know we are reluctant when it comes to making bread. It’s time consuming and it’s not always the easiest! Well I have the answer: a crispy, crumbly Turkish inspired delight!
2 cups cake flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2tsp cumin powder
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup water
1 tsp of sugar
-Mix all the dry ingredients together in a fairly large bowl. You want to be able to get your hands in there.
-Then in a separate jug or bowl mix the water and milk.
-Create a little well in your flour and pour half your liquid in. Using your hands start combining it all. Add the rest of your liquid as you need to! It mustn’t be too dry or too wet…it must be a dough that’s easy to work with. Give it a good knead….there is no particular way! Just get stuck in!
– Roll out your dough into a flat bread. About 1cm thick, it can be any shape you like. I love doing an oval vibe, just keep it rustic it adds to its beauty! Brush with coconut oil and sprinkle with cumin seeds.
-Bake in the oven @180 for roughly 25mins.
-Grilled Aubergine/eggplant slices (you need about 10)
-Red pepper hummus (shop bought or homemade
-A handful of roasted Cashew nuts
-A handful of pomegranates
-A couple tablespoon greek yogi
-With the topping you want to make it as colorful and Turkish looking as you can. So go wild!
-Smear the hummus on first, lay your grilled aubs down next then the rest is just a matter of sprinkling.
-Try drop those cashews in between any open spaces, they add a great crunch.
-Finish it with dollops of yogurt and fresh herbs.
This really is a yummy Turkish munch! I hope you try it!
P.S. This easy peasy bread is best eaten freshly baked the same day!
