Pitta Bread



I like Falafel Sandwich a lot. However, getting pitta bread in pune is next to impossible. Only one place called Dorabjee keeps them. Still, getting fresh ones is again a challenge..Since, its far far away from my home, its not always possible..I used to stuff them in noormal roti/paratha. However, they dont work out as roti breaks apart very easily. I tried making them at home..We were not dissapointed at all.

Ingredients you will require to make about 7 pitta bread are :

1 cup of plain flour
1 and 1/2 cup of wheat flour
2 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

Method to prepare them :

Dissolve yeast in 1/4th cup of luke warm water and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Mix rest of the ingredients together.
Make a hole in center and pour the yeast into yeast.
Knead into a soft dough by adding water little by little.
Grease a vessel. Put the dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 2 hours.
It will increase in volume.
Divide into equal portions.
Roll out into 1/2 cm thick base.
Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree centigrade for 5 minutes on each side.
After the bread cools down, take a sharp knife and cut out from center . It will come out as pocket.
