While i was doing September Mega marathon with International flatbreads as theme, i was totally surprised to see numerous varieties of flatbreads do exists in many cuisines. Obviously my fellow bloggers shared so many tremendous flatbreads and my bookmarking list was overflowing. Hence i couldnt stop myself to dish one among those bookmarked recipes. Here comes the Zanzibar sesame bread which is bookmarked immediately at Gayathri's Space, the simplicity of this bread pulled me to put them in bookmarked recipes. However i love the aroma of roasted sesame seeds in my breads, obviously i immediately want to try this bread. This bread is a fabulous one as coconut milk is used for kneading this bread dough. This bread is definitely a must try and i enjoyed making them. I have to say a big thanks to Gayathri for posting this ultimate bread as everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly.

Mkate Wa Ufuta,Zanzibar Coconut & Sesame Bread

Mkate Wa Ufuta is a Zanzibar flatbread which ressembles quite like our Indian naan, and this bread calls for easy dough preparation, and the dough contains yeast in it. Softy bread with delicious spongy texture along with wonderful flavours trust me this bread is definitely a must try. Serve this bread with some gourmet gravies, you can enjoy your meal without any fuss. If rolled slightly thin, you can also make some delectable wraps with this bread, however we enjoyed having with both honey and nutella. Mkate Wa Ufuta is very much known in Eastern part of Africa and this bread is also known as Ajam Naan or Mkate wa Ajam, and these breads can be freezed very well too. Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Global Cuisine'. Obviously this Zanzibar sesame bread are going for this week's theme.

Do you ever watch Migrationology with Mark Wiens - He is a You Tube guy who travels EVERYWHERE and shows you food from around the world - I have recently been watching his videos in Africa especially Tanzania Zanzibar Ethiopia and Kenya. It is so interesting to see how many foods they have which are so similar to Indian food - They all have a version of samosa! I think you would find it interesting also!
