Beautiful Semonlina Bread

4 cups of fine semolina
2 1/2 - 3/4 cups warm water
1 tbs yeast
4 tbs olive oil
2 tbs salt or to taste
seeds to your liking

Dissolve the yeast in the water.
Whisk together semolina and salt then add the olive oil.
Add the water to the semolina and knead until soft and satiny.
Set aside covered until doubled.
Gently press into disks, how many depends on your taste for thickness. I like thin sometimes, so I cooked four disks.
Let double again.
Brush with an egg and sprinkle with seeds.
Bake in a 400 degree oven until golden brown and hard when tapped.



  1. Jamila can you give some methods to some of the breads you have posted like this one , do i bake it?

  2. Assalam Alaikum sister,

    Yes, could you please let us know if this bread is baked in the oven or cooked in a frying pan and at what temperature for how long?

    Shukran, Maria
