Desayuno Turco

Turkish Breakfast

In our house we have always liked Turkish, Arabic or Syrian-Lebanese cuisine (Ottoman Empire haha), kibbeh, hummus, tabbouleh, baklavas, malfuf (vine leaves), kebbabs...... everything. A cuisine full of spices, flavors and spiciness, which is based on sharing with family and friends.

It occurred to us during Easter to make a Brunch inspired by this context and we decided to make this recipe that does not have a particular name but has a Turkish soul, where Arabic bread is used as a base to accompany many preparations.

Arabic bread with fried egg on a base of hummus, yogurt sauce, eggplant, roasted garlic and onions and naga jolokia .

It is kneaded for 10 to 15 minutes to develop the gluten (it can be in a mixer with a hook), it is divided into 60g balls, molded into a ball, and allowed to rest or rise for 15 minutes.

Take each portion, knead it with a rolling pin like making pizza and place it in a very hot frying pan without oil. You can also bake them at 240C for 4 minutes.

Our tip is to turn a Wok on the stove, let it get very hot and put each tortilla on the base of the wok, when bubbles form it is time to change sides.
