Saj bread (Arabic: خبز الصاج) is a thin, unleavened flatbread baked on a griddle known as a saj.

Recipe IEdit

IngredientsEdit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Mix flour and water, adding water gradually, until left with a workable dough. Knead thoroughly.
  2. Cover the dough and let rest for about 5 minutes. Add salt.
  3. Separate from dough smaller portions and make into balls. Using a flat surface lined with flour, begin to roll-out each ball into a flat piece of dough.
  4. Place flattened dough on griddle and bake until tender. On a heated griddle, baking only takes a few seconds. Flip-over and bake the other side for only a few seconds.
  5. Remove from griddle and allow to cool. Fold and store.

Recipe IIEdit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Mix ingredients and knead thoroughly.
  2. Cover the dough and let rest for about 30 minutes.
  3. Once again knead the dough, and divide into smaller portions. Roll out each portion over a flat surface with a rolling pin. Surface should be sprinkled with flour to prevent sticking.
  4. Take up rolled-out dough with a wooden rod and apply it to heated griddle. Turn over and bake on reverse side.
  5. Remove and let cool. Fold and store.

NOTE: In some places, milk is added to flour instead of water.
