Khubz ad Dar

I made some Algerian bread , my version of this very famous khubz eaten throughout Algeria./ /here it is uncooked rising in the tray Photobucket and here we are finished and ready to consume Photobucket

ok so the recipe is

half bag of plain white flour
1 cup of fine semolina
1 egg
2 table spoons of sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup of milk
Warm water to form dough

mix above well to form dough, leave to rise, oil a tray knock back dough and kneed till elasticy, shape into tray by flatting it with your hand. Score the top in a dimond shape with a knife , brush egg yellow on it , sprinkle with seseme seeeds,ansied seeds and black seeds. Bake on gas mark 5 for 20mins. Remove from tray and leave to cool before cutting.

Mine is a sweet bread as we have it for tea time so i add sugar but i also add grated lemmon rind and more semolina, so it dominates the bread so half a bag of semolina and 1 cup of flour. You can shape it round , i sometimes do 4 small round loaves ,one each for each member of the family, but remember to make it flat, as it rises well and if to high wont cook well inside. Can be kept in air tight container for upto 2-3 days just reaheat it in the oven or micro wave. Enjoy sisters i am glad tyou like it!!

Assalaamu Alaykum,

Ma sha Allah you HAVE been busy! That Khubz ad Daar looks yum. Is it a different recipe? What's your version. I really like baking bread. I've done this bread a few times but I would like to try out Matlou'. Do you know how to make that?

I think that crafting bug is contagious! But it's a good thing ma sha Allah.

Aslamu alakum sisters i have posted the recipe on the blog please do come to tell me how it came out, i was not very happy with the texure of mine , felt it could have been more fluffy, perhaps kneeded it more, less yeast maybe, thing is i don't enjoy my own cooking so i am harsh to my own food :(
