“After trying & studying several recipes for Egyptian breads I developed this version which is a combination of a few key elements of all the recipes, plus my spin as well. We thought these breads were a little dense for our taste so I don't think I'm done tweaking it quite yet. If you try it and have any suggestions please feel free to note them in your review. :)”
