  • 390 g Flour 3 cups (loosely packed)
  • 312 ml Lukewarm Water 1 and 1/4 cup+1 tbsp
  • 1 tsp Salt or 6 g
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp Yeast or 4.5 g(If using Active Dry yeast use 2 tsp)
  • 1 tbsp Sugar or 12.5 g


1.Prepare the dough

  • In this No Knead Bread Recipe we are making the bread dough in a very simple and easy method.
    Pour in the lukewarm water in to a bowl.
    Then add the sugar,salt and yeast.
    Stir and Mix until the ingredients dissolve.
    Add the flour and combine them all together to form a shaggy mass of dough.
    Make sure there are no dry patches left behind.

2.Proof the dough

  • Now cover the dough and let it rise for 30 minutes.

3.Divide and shape the dough

  • After 30 minutes, pull and stretch the dough from all four sides.
    As the dough is very sticky to handle ,Dip your hands in water to prevent any chance of dough sticking to your hands.
    Divide the dough into four equal halves.
    Shape each of them into round balls.
    As the dough is very sticky dust it with enough flour so that we can work smoothly.
    Work less with this sticky dough while shaping it into ball so that we can handle it well. 
    Take the first one that we shaped into ball and cover the rest.
    Flatten the dough ball to form a flat round disc of approximately 16-17 cm in diameter and 1 and 1/2 cm in thickness.
    Take it onto the preheated stove top.

4.Bake the Turkish bread, Bazlama on stove top.

  • Heat a heavy bottomed cast iron pan over medium high heat and place the flattened dough on it. 
    Turn it over after around 1 minute when the top start to puff up and cook the other side.
    Turn it again (after 1 and half-2 minutes)and repeat this for a few times. It will be done in approximately 6-7 minutes. 
    Transfer it on a tea towel and cover with another tea towel. Repeat for the remaining flattened dough circles. 



As this Turkish Flat Bread ,Bazlama is a very thick flatbread, we need the inside of bread to be well cooked.So We need to Cook it over low to medium heat.
