Nigella-seed Flatbreads

Yield Makes 20 flatbreads
Nigella seeds are available at international markets or zamourispices.com. This recipe is equally delicious with cumin seeds.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (105° to 110°)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons nigella seeds

How to Make It

  1. Combine yeast, water, and oil in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl, and make a well in center of mixture. Stir in yeast mixture and nigella seeds.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead dough until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour.

  4. Divide dough into 20 equal pieces, and shape into very thin rounds. Let dough rest 10 minutes.

  5. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add flatbreads, one at a time; cook until blistered and puffed. Turn flatbreads over; cook 1 more minute. Remove and cover to keep warm and pliable. Serve immediately.
