How To Make Dürüm

Dürüm is a type of flatbread that originated in Turkey. It is a wrap made from thin flatbread, which is typically filled with doner kebab and vegetables. The flatbread used for Dürüm is soft and pliable, making it easy to roll and hold the filling inside. The doner kebab, a popular Turkish dish made from seasoned meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, is the main ingredient in this delicious wrap. The meat is thinly sliced and placed on the flatbread, along with fresh vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. The wrap is then rolled tightly, creating a compact and flavorful meal that can be enjoyed on the go.

The history of Dürüm dates back to ancient times in Turkey. It is believed to have originated in the southeastern region of the country, where the doner kebab was first created. Over the years, Dürüm has gained popularity not only in Turkey but also in many other countries around the world.
The estimated cost to make this recipe for flatbread is around $10. This includes the ingredients needed to make the flatbread, such as flour, water, salt, and oil, as well as the filling ingredients like doner kebab and vegetables. However, the cost may vary depending on the prices of the ingredients in your area.

In terms of time, it will take approximately 1 hour to make this flatbread recipe. This includes the time needed to prepare the dough, let it rest, and then roll it out into thin flatbreads. Additionally, you will need to cook the flatbreads on a hot griddle or skillet until they are lightly browned and cooked through. The time may vary depending on your cooking skills and the number of flatbreads you are making.

Dürüm Ingredients

The main ingredients used in making Dürüm flatbread are flour, water, salt, and yeast. Flour is the main ingredient and is used to make the dough. Water is added to the flour to make the dough moist and easy to knead. Salt is added to enhance the flavor of the flatbread, while yeast is used to make the dough rise and become fluffy.

The tools used in making Dürüm flatbread are a mixing bowl, a rolling pin, and a griddle or a frying pan. The mixing bowl is used to mix the flour, water, salt, and yeast to make the dough. The rolling pin is used to flatten the dough into thin flatbread. The griddle or frying pan is used to cook the flatbread until it is golden brown. Once the flatbread is cooked, it is typically filled with doner kebab and vegetables to make a delicious wrap.

Dürüm Recipe

To prepare the flatbread, start by gathering all the necessary ingredients: flour, water, salt, and yeast. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes frothy. Gradually pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for about an hour or until it doubles in size.

Once the dough has risen, divide it into small portions and roll each portion into a thin, round shape. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat and cook each flatbread for a few minutes on each side until it puffs up and develops golden brown spots. Remove the flatbread from the pan and let it cool slightly before filling it with doner kebab and vegetables of your choice. Roll it up tightly and enjoy your…(full recipe on the way)

To cook flatbread, start by preheating a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Place the flatbread on the pan and cook it for about 1-2 minutes on each side until it becomes slightly golden and puffy. Flip it carefully using a spatula to avoid tearing. Once both sides are cooked, remove the flatbread from the pan and set it aside.

Next, prepare the filling by slicing the doner kebab and chopping the vegetables of your choice, such as lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Lay the flatbread flat on a clean surface and place the doner kebab slices and vegetables in the center. Fold the sides of the flatbread over the filling, then roll it tightly from one end to the other, creating a wrap. Cut the wrap in half if desired, and it is now ready to be enjoyed as a delicious and satisfying meal…(full recipe on the way)
