A popular bread from Mediterranean cuisine, Pita Bread can be had as it is with Hummus or used to make tasty dishes like Falafel .


Take care to dissolve the yeast well in warm water, because it will not get activated if you use cold or hot water. At the right temperature, yeast will get activated and you will see tiny bubbles on top of the water after you let it rest for a few minutes.


Likewise, it is also important to use olive oil to make Pita Bread, as it gives a mild but characteristic aroma to the bread.

  3. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove for 30 minutes or till the dough doubles in volume.
  4. Knead the dough to remove the excess air.

  6. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the pita bread on a medium flame for 1 minute on both the sides or till small blisters are seen.
  7. Then, cook it on an open flame till it puffs up and brown spots appear on both the sides.
