Pita Bread

www.xawaash.com

There is something magical about baking pita bread at home. We do not do it because of the cost, even though homemade pita is cheaper than the store-bought variety. We like watching pitas puff up in the oven and we like letting the steam out of them and dipping them right away in homemade ful mudammas, hummus, or baba ghanoush. We also love having fresh pita with grilled meats: kebabs, kofta, or shish tawouk. Whenever we go to a Middle Eastern restaurant that has freshly baked pitas, we look forward to the pitas just as much as the grilled offerings.

Pitas are extremely easy to make and they have very few ingredients. You do not need a mixer or any other fancy kitchen gadget. You can make whole wheat pita, white pita, or a combination. You can also add grains, omit the salt, replace the sugar with honey, and you will always end up with delicious, piping hot pitas.

The pockets in the pita make them an ideal bread for sandwiches. Falafel sandwiches just are not the same with any other type of bread. A favourite of ours is fresh pita with clotted cream and honey. Then there is the “tahini halva pita sandwich” and the “sweetened condensed milk pita sandwich.” Both may seem silly, but are delicious with a cup of tea with milk. The extra sweetness is balanced by a side of olives and cheese. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Pain Pita

www.xawaash.com

Il se passe quelque chose de magique quand on fait du pain pita à la maison. Nous ne le faisons pas uniquement à cause de son coût avantageux, même si une pita faite maison coûte moins cher que celle achetée au supermarché. Nous aimons regarder les pitas gonfler dans le four et nous aimons les presser pour faire sortir la vapeur et les tremper aussitôt dans du ful mudammas fait maison, de l’houmous, ou du baba ghanoush. Nous aimons aussi manger de la pita fraîche avec de la viande grillée: kebabs, kofta, ou shish tawouk. Quand nous allons dans un restaurant oriental qui sert des pitas fraîchement cuites, ellles nous mettent l’eau à la bouche autant que les plats de grillades.

Les pitas sont extrêmement faciles à faire et contiennent très peu d’ingrédients. Pas besoin de mixer ou de gadget de cuisine. Vous pouvez faire des pitas à la farine complète, des pitas à la farine blanche, ou un mélange des deux. Vous pouvez aussi ajouter des graines, enlever le sel, remplacer le sucre par du miel, et vous obtiendrez quand même des délicieuses pitas toutes chaudes.

Les bulles dans la pita en fait un pain à sandwich idéal. Les sandwiches au falafel ne sont pas les mêmes avec un autre type de pain. Notre préférée est la pita à la crème fraîche et au miel. Il y a aussi le “sandwich pita au halva tahini” et le “sandwich pita au lait condensé sucré”. Ces deux sandwichs semblent bizarres mais ils sont délicieux avec une tasse de thé au lait. Le sucre est contrebalancé avec quelques olives et du fromage. Satisfaction garantie.

    I can’t get good pita bread where I live and love it so want to learn to make it. I can’t get instant yeast I have dried active yeast which i have to reactive before use. Do you have suggestion how I use this yeast. It says 650g flour usually requires 15g yeast (dissolve in 150 water).

    • A&L
      October 19, 2013 | 8:41 pm

      You will need 2 1/2 Teaspoons dried active yeast. Activate the yeast for 10 minutes in half a cup of lukewarm water with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Remember to use half a cup less water when mixing.

    Hi

    Tried making wholewheat pita today. I was all excited as the dough rose (I had to leave it for 2 hrs as I was going out). The six balls rose as well after half hour. I rolled them rested them for 10 min put them in the oven but they did not puff up. I used a baking tray. Not sure what went wrong. They taste nice enough, will be ok to use with dips.
