As with everything you make, these are lovely. I like the idea of using bran to roll the dough.

seeing this bread reminds me of the many times I've been in Egypt and seeing men, boys, etc either walking or riding a bike with these huge racks of bread on them to sell. We would buy tons of it!!!!. It's so good and healthy because of the whole wheat. Now, I can have a little bit of Egypt here. Thanks so much ladies!!!!!

salams sister's...

I love your breads mashAllah. I like to make breads as well and mine are never thin enough no matter how much I roll. Yours always seems so perfect do you use the pasta machine to roll the dough out or do you do everything by hand?

Also, I usually use my bread machine to mix my dough and let it rise in there do you think thats ok or should I do it all by hand? My bread just never turns out right bc its always to puffy and thick in the end no matter how much I press with the rolling pin :(

Ahlan noor,
Thank you for the comment,It's ok to use bread machine to mix your dough or do it by hand(it's up to you).
To roll the dough I always use the rolling pin.(try to roll evenly & preheat the oven)I'm sure your flat bread will turns out right this time.

Good luck :)
