Pita de casa cu marar/Homemade pita flat bread

english translation here

O alta reteta din categoria paine. Pur si simplu ador produsele de panificatie, iar aceasta reteta de pita este foarte gustoasa atat calda, cat si rece. Se pastreaza bine pana la 3 zile si poate fi consumata ca atare, sau ca o tortilla, umpluta cu branza si rosii, de exemplu. Eu nu sunt o prea mare fana a patrunjelului, in schimb ador mararul, motiv pentru care l-am folosit la aceste pite. Voi, insa, puteti inlocui fara probleqme mararul cu patrunjel.

Ingrediente (10 pite):

  • 1 kg faina 000
  • 570 ml apa calduta
  • 70 ml ulei
  • 10 g drojdie uscata/30 g dr.proaspata
  • 3 lingurite zahar
  • 2 lingurite sare
  • marar
  • ulei pentru prajit

Se amesteca drojdia uscata cu zaharul si apa calduta. Daca se foloseste drojdie proaspata, se lasa 10 minute deoparte.

Se pun uleiul si jumatate din faina cernuta. Se amesteca bine, apoi se adauga sarea. Se pune si restul de faina si mararul tocat si se omogenizeaza. Se muta pe blatul infarinat si se framanta pana cand nu se mai lipeste de maini. Mutati aluatul in bolul uns cu ulei, acoperiti si lasati 1 ora la crescut, la o temperatura calduta.

Se face rulou si se imparte in 10 bucati egale, care se modeleaza in bile. Se acopera si se lasa 30 de minute. Se turtesc si se intind in forma de lipie, cu mana, apoi se prajesc in ulei incins, cate 2-3 minute pe fiecare parte. Se scot pe hartie absorbanta.

Homemade pita flat bread

Another recipe from the “bread” category. I absolutely love bakery products and this pita recipe is really great both warm and cold. They stay fresh for up to 3 days. You can it them as they are, as a snack or bread substitute; or like a tortilla, filled with tomatoes, cheese or whatever else you like.

I am not a very big fan of parsley, but I love dill and so I used it for these pitas. But you can use whatever culinary herb you prefer.

Ingredients (10 pcs):

  • 8 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • chopped dill/parsley
  • oil for frying


Combine yeast with sugar and warm water. If using fresh yeast, set the mixture aside for 10 mins.

Add in the oil and half the sifted flour. Combine then add the salt. Add the rest of the flour and chopped dill and mix everything together. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead until it doesn’t stick to your hands anymore (about 2-3 min).

Place it on the greased bowl, cover and rise 1 hour, at a warm temperature. Divide into 10 equal pieces and shape into balls. Cover and leave rise for another 30 min. Press down with your hands to give tortilla shape and fry for 2-3 min. on each side.
