Bazlama is a Turkish flatbread similar to its Indian counterpart, naan bread. It is pillowy soft and delicious made with only a handful of simple ingredients that are guaranteed to be found in your pantry. A fluffy and easy pita recipe that can be cooked in minutes.
One of the easiest bread recipes out there! This flatbread recipe is sure to impress all your family and friends. Spread some butter or oil on this homemade pita bread and dip it in hummus for the perfect snack.
I absolutely love Turkish food and this Turkish recipe is no different. Out of all the different cuisines in the world, Turkish food is one that I love to explore the most. Its light use of spices yet powerful flavours makes Turkish food rival to all cuisines.
The best thing about this recipe is that it comes together very easily. You don’t need to knead it for long. The longest time is the time it takes to rise, but you can do whatever you want during that time.
Flatbread isn’t just a Turkish thing though. It’s been around for centuries in many different cultures. Who knows who actually came up with the first flatbread recipe? Nevertheless, each culture has its own version of flatbread. Each has its own slightly different characteristics, for example, my naan bread recipe!
The best thing about this recipe is that it goes with so many things. Usually, you would serve it with hummus. Personally, I love having it with curries. I know that’s less than the traditional way of eating it, but it just pairs so well! You could even use it as a base for pizza. There are endless ways of using this recipe.
