Kubus or Pita bread

When I made kubus for first time I was so happy to see the result.But the first one didn’t puffed up fully so I became little depressed but the rest came out very well.My hubby too loved this fresh homemade kubus.




















Ingredients:

2c All purpose flour
1and ½ tsp dry instant yeast
2tsp sugar
1tsp salt
1tbsp Olive oil
Warm water



Method:

1.Sprinkle yeast on warm water with sugar.Keep this aside for 5 mins.
2.In a bowl take the flour a nd salt now start adding the yeast mixture slowly and knead it to a dough add olive oil in between and knead well till the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
3.Keep this in a greased bowl for 1 to 2 hours.
4.After 2 hours punch out the air and knead once again.
5.Now make big lemon sized balls from this dough and keep aside for 10 mins covered with wet cloth to avoid drying.



















6.Now on the grill part of the oven and preheat the oven in high flame.
7.Roll out the balls into medium sized discs.
8.Keep one pizza stone or any pan in the middle rack of the oven.
9.Now place each disc on this pan and bake for 3 mins till it puffs up fully and brown spots appears on the top.
10 Now this can be served with hammus and grilled chicken or any curries.

yummm... when I was growing up, kubus was my favourite kind of bread. Now I'm no longer in the Gulf. Sadly, we don't good kubus here. Im planning to try this out tonight.

Hi

Interesting recipe, would love to try it out. I just wanted to point out a tiny error in the title, it isn't called Kubbus, it's pronounced Khobz (3 letter Arabic word, there is no vowel after the second letter, it's a stop) and it isn't hammus either it's pronounced Hommos or Hommus (the vowel in the second syllable is a short vowel and is not to be elongated). I've only noticed Keralites referring to the Lebanese bread as Kubboos :)
