There is a recipe for the Egyptian traditonal bread: the Baladi. It used as a pocket bread for various types of sandwiches, kebabs, etc.

Recipe for 6 to 8 baladis:
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 7 oz. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt.
  • 1/4 oz. Dry Yeast.

Put flour and salt in an over sized bowl. Mix the dry yeast with the water. Slowly add water in the flour-salt mix and work this mix until you get a dough. Then, knead the dough for 20 minutes.

Spread some flour on a clean, flat surface. Divide the dough into small balls. Form balls into flat round shapes or triangles. Cover with a cloth and proof for one to two hours.
Bake the bread on a greaseproof paper for 30 minutes at 350 Degrees Centigrade.
