Khubz (BREAD)

I wanted to make khubz tagine but my tagine has been spoiling my cooker so i am not using it anymore on the hob.
I mixed 2 cups of fine semolina
2 cups of plain flour
some grated lemmon rind and some salt
Yeast to rise and water to mix

Shaped them out into rounds and sprinkled the trays with a little semolina , pierced with a fork and baked at gas mark 6 for around 20-30mins.

Assalaamu alaikm,

Looks good sis masha'Allah. Can you give more instructions... I assume you knead the dough? How long for etc.? I need step by step instructs! I'd love to try this and surprise hubby during Ramadan. :) Is the lemon rind optional?

yes habibati you kneed the dough and leave it to rise but don't expect to much to rise in volume as the semolina will weigh it down, don't put lemmon rind, put black seeds insead or anissed. Once rolled out leave to rise again on trays before baking and i used a rolling pin to roll it out tidying edges by hand.Have a detailed lok here i now you are on that forum no? http://muslimahs4algeria.niceboard.com/khobz-bread-f71/i-need-help-with-matlou-please-t5378.htm

Thanks sis. :)

Will check it out insha'Allah coz I am a bit unsure about a couple of things... like no sugar at all??

How long do you need to knead it for? Sorry there wasn't enough info on the link for a no brainer like me! LOL

YUM! Ma sha Allah look great. I'm going to try it with lemon. Never done that and I just love that lemony fragrance! Bought loads of lemons for Ramadan too!

I didn't kneed it much do it for as long as you feel your getting the texture inshaallah.

Umm Hibbat welcome back habibati miss you comments on my blog, i decided to make frsh bread for ramandan and if you make extra it freezes wel and i cut it up in to 1/4 and pop it in the toaster to re-heat nxt day, inshaallah you ladies have sucess.
