BRAN PITA BREAD

Flat-breads are such a wonderful food: great pockets of dough that are so very versatile you can enjoy them with almost any fillings. In Trinidad and Tobago we have several types flat-breads that we enjoy on a regular basis such as Sada Roti, Dhalpurhie, Dhosti Roti etc. Pita is one of least used flat-breads locally, but that is mainly due to its Middle Eastern origins. I decided to try my hand at making these and I was not disappointed at all....Here's my recipe...enjoy. INGREDIENTS 2 cups All Purpose Flour 1/2 Bran 3 tbsp Instant Yeast 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil 1 tsp Salt 1 1/2 cup lukewarm Water 1 tbsp Vege or Olive Oil for forming dough Flour for dusting METHOD ●In a large mixing bowl add flour, bran, yeast and salt and mix with hands or spoon until incorporated well. ●Add oil to lukewarm water and stir(ensure water isn't too hot it needs to be lukewarm.) Gradually add water to flour bringing flour together the texture should be soft but not overly sticky. Using hands knead dough for approximately 5 mins. ●Oil dough as well as hands with tbsp of oil and form a ball. Dust base of mixing bowl with flour and place dough in cover with a towel and set aside for approximately 45 mins until dough has doubled in size. ●Place tawah or wide skillet on medium heat and preheat. Punch down dough and remove from bowl cut into 6 pieces and roll into balls and cover for 5 mins. Using rolling pin roll into circles of approximately 3mm thick and place on tawah/skillet. ●Bubbles will begin to rise on dough flip when spots on the base of the bread becomes golden and cook the other side the same. ●Place cooked flat-bread in towel and cover, repeat with other balls of dough. When finished serve immediately with desired fillings and enjoy.
