Khubz Ingredients

The main ingredients for making this flatbread are flour, water, yeast, salt, and sometimes olive oil. Flour is the base ingredient and provides the structure for the bread. Water is added to hydrate the dough and activate the yeast. Yeast is used to make the bread rise and give it a light and fluffy texture. Salt is added for flavor, and olive oil can be used to enhance the taste and add moisture to the bread.

The tools needed for making this flatbread include a mixing bowl, a measuring cup, a spoon or whisk for mixing the ingredients, a clean surface for kneading the dough, and a rolling pin to flatten the dough into thin rounds. A tandoor, which is a traditional clay oven, is often used to bake the flatbread, but if you don’t have one, a regular oven or stovetop can be used as well. Additionally, a baking sheet or a hot griddle can be used to cook the flatbread.

Khubz Recipe

To prepare Khubz, you will need to gather the following ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast, 1 cup of warm water, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Begin by mixing the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Then, add the warm water and olive oil to the mixture and stir until a dough forms. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Next, cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for about an hour in a warm place until it doubles in size. After the dough has risen, divide it into 8 equal parts and roll each part into a thin circle. Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat and cook each flatbread for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it becomes golden brown. Serve the Khubz warm and…(full recipe on the way)

To cook Khubz, start by preheating the oven to 500°F (260°C). Place the dough on a floured surface and divide it into small balls. Roll out each ball into a thin circle using a rolling pin. Next, transfer the rolled dough onto a baking sheet and prick it with a fork to prevent air bubbles. Bake the flatbread in the preheated oven for about 5-7 minutes or until it puffs up and turns golden brown. Once cooked, remove the flatbread from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Khubz is now ready to be used as a delicious edible utensil for dips and dishes.

Note: If you don’t have an oven, you can also cook Khubz on a stovetop. Simply heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and cook each rolled dough for about 1-2 minutes on each side until it puffs up and gets golden brown spots…(full recipe on the way)
