how to make Homemade Iranian Barbari Flat Bread



Heghineh Cooking Show – Homemade Iranian Barbari – Flat Bread Recipe

Another great tasting flat bread recipe. This time from Iranian traditional bread: Barbari, one of my favorites, I’d say most Armenian bakeries bake Barbari and it’s so delicious that I decided to give it a try and make the homemade version.Barbari has a slight resemblance with Armenian Matnakash ,but it’s so much simpler in making and tastes quite different due to the fact that it’s got sesame seeds which gives the bread a specific taste and look. Recipe is pretty basic and there’s no way to fail it:)

Happy baking!


For the bread dough

3 cups of all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups of warm water

1 tsp instant dry yeast

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp sugar

Semolina or cornstarch for dusting the work surface
