Turkish Bread Delight

Further to my previous post on Hummus Bi Tahini, this was the Turkish bread that I made to accompany it. I used the recipe from Glutten Cat, who generously had translated it into English. This bread not only looks fabulous, but tastes wonderful. It is the perfect scoop for hummus or any meal that has a sauce or gravy, or just eat it as is. I was a bit heavy handed with the nigella seeds, which I used in preference to caraway seeds. Next time I'll combine both.

The finished product and (below) the proved dough, ready to be put in the oven.

This recipe makes a lot of dough, so depending upon the size of the bread you require, halve or even quarter it, which is what I'll be doing next time.

I really loved the effect of spreading yoghurt over the top, which not only held the seeds in place, but gave it a beautiful shine, texture and flavour, once out of the oven.

Pam, you have some delicious food on your blog! This turkish bread and the hummus below look so delicious. I could live on hummus! I'll have to add this bread to my survival list :)

Thank you Lael. It's delicious and even better, easy to make. It's one of my "keepers" as well. Hope you enjoy it.

Dear Pam,

You have delicious recipes and I reached to your page while looking for apple recipes. This Turkish bread we call it "pide" here in Turkey and yours appears very delicious.

Hi Betul, Thanks for visiting my blog, and leaving such a nice comment. This bread is one of my favourites, both to prepare and eat.
