Turkish bread is a delightful and simple bread that you can easily make at home. And the best part is, you don’t even have to knead it! The recipe is so straightforward that you’ll be enjoying warm, fluffy Turkish bread in no time. So let’s dive into the easy steps of making this delicious bread.

You’ll Need the Following Ingredients:

  • 500 g (1 pound) flour

  • 150 ml (5 fl. oz) warm milk

  • 150 ml (5 fl. oz) warm water

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp dry yeast

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • Chopped parsley

  • Chili flakes

How to Make Turkish Bread

  1. Start by mixing the yeast and salt into the flour using a whisk. This will ensure that all the dry ingredients are well combined.

  2. Add the warm milk and water to the flour mixture. Mix everything together until the liquids are absorbed by the flour. You don’t need to knead the dough, just make sure everything is well mixed.

  3. Pour in the olive oil and continue kneading the dough until it becomes smooth. This may take around 10 minutes, but trust me, it’s worth it!

  4. Once the dough is smooth, shape it into a ball and cover it with vegetable oil. Set it aside in a warm place for about an hour or until it doubles in size. This is when the magic happens, and the dough becomes light and airy.

  5. After the dough has risen, divide it into six equal pieces. Take each piece and roll it into a ball. This will give you perfectly shaped Turkish bread.

  6. Now it’s time to cook the bread. Heat a pan on medium-high heat and carefully place each flatbread on the pan. Cook each side for about 2.5-3 minutes, or until it turns golden brown. You’ll notice that the bread puffs up and forms a pocket in the middle when you flip it over. That’s exactly what we’re looking for!

  7. Once all the bread is cooked, spread a little oil over each piece while it’s still hot. Then sprinkle chopped parsley and chili flakes on top for an extra burst of flavor.
