The bread:

Bread is one of the staple foods found in most tables in the world, due to its high nutritional value, and it is remarkable that it has many ways to prepare it varies according to different civilizations. One of the famous types of bread in our Arab world is Moroccan bread, or what is called in Morocco with batspot, as there is hardly a house in Morocco without this delicious bread, so we will look at how to prepare it.

Moroccan bread:

  The ingredients:

  1.  A cup of brown wheat flour.
  2.  A cup of white wheat flour.
  3. Three quarters of a cup of warm water.
  4. Tablespoon of instant yeast.
  5. Hlf a tablespoon of sugar.
  6. Half a teaspoon of salt.
  7. Half a teaspoon of anise.
  8. 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds or black seed (optional).

How to prepare:

  • We put all the dry ingredients in a deep bowl, and toss them a little together until they mix well.
  • Add the yeast and mix well, then start adding warm water gradually until we get a soft dough.
  • We put the dough in a deep bowl, then cover it, and leave it in a warm place for an hour until it relaxes, ferments and doubles in size.
  • Cut the dough into somewhat large balls, but they should all be equal in size.
  • Spread the dough balls until they become circular in shape, then cover them and leave them until they rest, and the fermentation process returns for about half an hour or according to room temperature.
  • We make some holes on the surface of the dough with a fork so that they do not swell a lot during the baking process, then we put them in the oven at a temperature of two hundred, and we leave them until they are tender and roast from the top and the bottom.
  • Moroccan bread can be stuffed with many fillings, such as cooked minced meat, cooked chicken breasts, or types of cheese, as desired.
