Fresh from the Oven – Pide
This month’s Fresh from the Oven challenge was hosted by Pei Lin and she chose the challenge to be Pide. Pide is not a bread I had heard of before but like always was keen to give it a go. It originates from Turkey and is used to break the fast after Ramadan.
I don’t know if it the heat we’re having at the moment here or the fact I never have much luck with recipes written in cups but I found the dough really hard to work with and I ended up adding quite a significant amount of flour to the dough to get it to be workable which in turn dried the dough out too much. Hubs said he like it and has been using it for sandwiches so it can’t be that bad!
I won’t give you the recipe I converted to as I don’t believe it is the best, but here is Pei Lin’s original recipe which seems to be far more successful than my conversion attempt. Apart from me mucking up the conversion the only alteration I made to the recipe was to top it with fennel seeds & nigella seeds instead of sesame seeds.
