In our quest to conquer the world, one bread at a time, we found a recipe for a flatbread called Aish Baladi, which at first look seemed like a cousin of Kenya’s Chapati, just baked instead of pan fried. And didn’t we say after the Chapati that we would want to try it baked instead? Hah, instant winner!
Next up we kneaded it and added more flour until it was not sticky anymore (which was quite a bit and Nico was not a big fan of having his hands all lumped up with sticking dough). We rolled it all out, cut off pieces and rolled them into balls, which we placed on a cookie sheet.
Now it was time to take the dough balls and flatten some of them and left some as balls to see how they would turn out, before pouring some cinnamon over half of them for our second version. In the end the ones we left as balls turned out way better, because they were fluffier and lighter and also less chewy.
