Arabic Variations on Bread
Pursuing my interest in learning Arabic, I have been watching lessons on Youtube, posted by a very nice couple named Maha and Luca. Maha is the teacher who speaks Arabic and Hebrew as her maternal languages and has learned several others. Luca is her husband and has been playing the role of student. Recently they did two videos on making Arabic bread which inspired me to imitate it with my own dough. It turned out good!
I don’t have the nifty oven they show so I had to improvise and my first idea didn’t get off the ground so I further improvised, but the proof is that they were all eaten in short time. I wanted to use the bottom heat (that worked) and then the top heat with the grill function of the oven, but it wouldn’t light, so I just finished them in the regular oven. This called “mannaquiche”; that is my own phonetic spelling.
Here are links to the videos which inspired this experiment:
