Posted for ZWT6 North Africa/Middle East leg of tour. The ingredients are certainly familiar, but it's all in the cooking! The prep and cooking times do not reflect the overnight wait time!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
  2. Place flour in large mixing bowl. Add yeast and mix well.
  3. Cover the mixture with a clean kitchen towel and let it sit at room temperature overnight.
  4. The next morning, stir in the baking powder and let stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Heat about 1/2 teaspoon of the oil in a large skillet, fitted with a cover. Add about 1/2 cup of the batter and fry over low to medium heat for 1-2 minutes. When bubbles appear, cover the skillet for 15 seconds.
  6. Turn out the pancake onto a plate, without flipping it over. Prepare remaining batter this way.
