Khobz' Arabi /Khubus - Arabic Flat Bread

Khubz, Khoubz or Khobz is an Arabic word for bread which refer to a flatbread that forms the staple food of many countries like Arabian Peninsula, Lebanon, Syria etc..In Arabic Peninsula, the most common type of bread is mostly a large type of flat bread and its traditionally baked in special oven, the dough is rolled out like pizza dough and it baked in oven..The Arabian style khobz are also called as Khuboos or khubus, its looks similar liks pita bread or either like our Indian roti 'Naan'..Usually this bread is prepared with all purpose flour but i prepared this bread by combining both all purpose flour and whole wheat flour, i got this recipe from Faji's Hot Pot which i bookmarked few days back..Thanks to Faji, i enjoyed making this bread and we loved it with hummus and salad.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Middle Eastern guest hosted by Asiya Akka, event by Julie..

1cup All purpose flour
1cup Whole wheat flour

  40. I may be halfway pastry-challenged, but when i add the yeast mixture to the flour it does not seem wet enough and about a quarter fo the flour does not get mixed in and just flakes up.....what could be the problem?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Adam, add some water to turn as a soft dough, u need to add water,thats the problem,hope this helps..

  42. I tried making Khubz sometime ago, what a disaster. The recipe made a HUGE batch making it very difficult to work with im my small kitchen. This portion is more managable and is kneading and rising in my bread maker. Anxious to see how it bakes on my baking stone.
