  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 x 10 g sachet dry yeast
  • 1 t sugar
  • 2 t salt
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 560 g flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 T sumac
  • 200 g butter, melted

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar and salt using a wooden spoon, adding a little olive oil to create an elastic dough.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until soft. Place in a bowl and cover. Leave to rise for at least an hour. Separate the dough into balls and roll each out thinly on a lightly-floured surface.

Mix the sumac into the melted butter and brush over the breads. Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes, or until cooked through and crisp.
Cook’s note: Sumac is a lemon-flavoured spice available at most spice shops and delis.
