I am home alone, so I made up half this recipe, and ate the lot :) I used self raisng flour, and ended up with light savoury piklets, that I ate with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. very easy recipe, had no trouble with it, thanks Connie. Made for Aussie swap, june2010
I enjoy making fry breads, or flatbreads, as well as pancakes, so this recipe appeals to me too. I wasn't sure how much oil to use and so I was generous with it. I read the other two reviews and mine also came out kind of heavy, but I know some other recipes that are without leavening too and they are a bit heavier. It helps there to have the heat hot enough to cook them through before they absorb too much oil. I think next time I will also add a bit of baking powder to the mix, and probably not put as much liquid in the mixture, or oil in the pan. I like it enough to try it again. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us! [editted to add] I did make this again, with a few changes. I added 2 tsp of baking powder to the dry ingredients; I added the diced tomato before the water, so the liquid from the tomato would go in first and then I could adjust the water so the mixture would be a stiff batter instead of a creamy one. It came out great! I've added it to my fry bread repertoire and will be making it again and again. - I just made it again,, using a bit of rosemary, sage, tomato, egg,, green onion.. yumm. It is a flexible recipe. I could go on and on, but I'll stop now. hehehe
I've never been to Greece and have never heard of this bread, but it looked interesting. Overall our family liked it. My son said it tasted kind of like mild pizza. Since he loves pizza, that's a compliment. I did a test one and it seemed flatter than I expected (like a pancake) so I and added some baking powder and baking soda to get it to puff up a little more. I think next time I make it (and I will) I will use sundried tomato as well just to give it a little more flavor. I liked that Chef1MOM stated that you could play around with the spices and herbs you add to it. I added italian herbs to mine. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
This was an interesting bread. I'd never tried anything quite like this before. I used fresh tomatoes and lots of green onion. I added chopped garlic and Italian Herbs. Made exactly as directed. It has a lovely flavor but the texture takes a little getting use too. I found the bread to be a little greasy, so I drained them on paper towel and sprinkled my coarse greek salt over it. Tasted wonderful, thanks for sharing....:)
