How to make pita bread quickly and simply at home. There are recipes on the site, but I didn't find my own. Try it, it may come in handy. Spodvigla me today on pita bread buying a new pancake pan D-30 cm and I remembered it.
We will need a deep dish where we will knead the dough. Sift the flour, add salt, and mix. Pour the oil into the recess in the flour and constantly stirring with a spoon pour boiling water. First, knead the dough with a spoon or spatula, then start working with your hands. The dough is excellent, it does not stick to your hands. Roll it into a ball and put it in a bag. Leave on the table for about 30 minutes.
On the work surface, spread the dough out of the package and press it well. Roll "in sausage" and cut into identical pieces. I have a frying pan D-30 cm and I need to make very thin tortillas of about the same diameter, so from this amount of dough I will get 4 pieces (checked!). Roll each piece into a ball, and then roll each one out very thinly with a rolling pin. There is no need to dust the surface with flour. The dough is simply excellent neither to the hands nor to the work surface does not stick.
Heat the pan and spread the tortilla on it. As soon as the bubbles appear (see the photo), turn and fry on the other side, it seems to me even less than a minute. Pita bread does not need to be dried. The dough is very thin. Remove from the pan to a plate and brush each tortilla with water on both sides. Stored in a package. I put a plate of pita bread in a bag.
We eat instead of bread or make some snacks. Here is a pita bread, very well torn and does not crumble!
