Homemade Pita Bread

I’ve been often asked how to make Pita Bread at home, but due to its free availability here in NY…I dragged my feet about making it at home! However inspired by my friend Farrukh, I finally decided to give them a try! They were super easy to make & tasted so much better than the ready store bought…totally worth the effort of making them at home!

Below you see Grilled Pita Bread with a delicious & healthy Spinach Hummus!

You can also fill the Pita pockets with falafel/kababs along with a drizzle of yoghurt tahini sauce!

2 cups flour
1 cup atta
2 tbsp semolina
2 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Knead together with warm water to make a smooth dough! Pat with about 2 tbsp oil and keep covered in a warm place till doubles, about 1 hour.

Now preheat oven to 475 degree. Roll out small balls of dough thinly. Place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 4 minutes, flip and then 3 minutes on the other side.
