1 tablespoon of honey
1 sachet of dried yeast
half a mug of warm water
470 grammes of flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of coriander powder
1 mug of warm water


1.  Put the half mug of water, honey and yeast in a large glass (or similar).  Mix and put in a warm place for about 10 minutes until it froths.  A warm place could be the oven on about 25 degrees or in a warm room.

2.  At the same time mix the flour, salt and coriander powder in a non-metalic bowl.  Slowly add the frothy yeast mixture and the warm water.  Knead the mixture until the dough leaves the side of the bowl.  Add more flour if it is too wet.

3.  Knead the mixure on a floured surface until it becomes elastic.

4.  Put in a lightly-oiled bowl and then cover with a clean cloth.  Leave in a warm place to rise until it is twice the size.  This may take 1-2 hours.  In this time you can learn some English on our website 🙂

5.  Heat the oven to 230 degrees.

6.  Lightly knead the mixture again and then form it into the shape you would like.  Make some cuts in the top of the dough.  Cover and leave in a warm place again for 30 minutes.

7.  Put in the over for 18 minutes.

8.  Remove from the oven and put on a metal grid to cool down.  Do not put it directly on a flat surface because it will get wet underneath when cooling.  You need air to circulate.

9. Eat and enjoy!
