Introduction: Unleavened Bread
When you mention bread - it is Germany.There are different types of bread available here..Some times it is very difficult to decide as what bread to buy.Very few people make bread at home because variety of bread is available in the market.And it is quite cheap too.
Here I am showing the famous turkish bread called- unleavened bread.In german it is called Fladenbrot.And this is not Ciabetta.
This bread is not baked in a loaf.It is always baked in an oval shape on a flat tray.It is easy to make and taste very good too.
Step 1: Ingridents
For the yeast dough
125 gr Yogurt
100 ml milk
225 gr Plain flour
150gr Wholemael flour
1 1/2 Level tea sp baking powder
1/2 Level tea sp salt
1/2 Level tea sp sugar
1/2 Pkt dried yeast
25 gr soft butter
For Coating and topping
1-2 Tble sp butter
Poppy seeds (not available)
For the dough warm the milk with yogurt.Stir well for the jogurt to dissolve.
Put both kinds of flour in a mixing bowl with the baking powder,yeast,salt,and sugar and stir carefully.Add the other ingredients to the dough and the warm milk-yogurt mixture.
Stir with a hand mixer kneading hook.First briefly on the lowest setting,then on the highest setting for about 5-7 minutes to form a smooth dough.Roll it in to a ball,cover the dough with a soft wet cloth and put in a warm place to rise until it has visibly increased in volume.I left it near the heater for an hour.
When it is visibly increased in volume, knead the dough again briefly on a slightly floured work surface.Roll out the dough in to a flat oval shapes.3/4 inches in thickness.Now place the dough in a prepared baking tray and prick several times with the fork.Melt the butter and brush the dough with it.Immediately sprinkle sesame,coriander, and cumin seeds over it.(I have not sprinkled poppy seed)
Again cover the dough with cling film and leave it in a warm place until it has visibly increased in size.I left it for an hour.
Refer picture 4 (before) and picture 5.(after an hour it has increased in volume)
Bake in a pre heated oven ( 220°C/ 425°F) for about 13-15 minutes.
Leave the golden brown baked bread to cool on a wire rack.
TIP: You can also freeze unleavened bread.In this case crisp up the defrosted bread for 10 minutes in the pre heated oven.
