Barbari bread is a Persian delight often accompanied by a good strong feta cheese. It is served at breakfast, yet makes an ample mainstay when making sandwiches. It is easy to make, and a video is included so that you can easily ascertain how the bread should look before you pop it in the oven.
1 packet of yeast
2 cups of water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 cups of flour (preferably bread flour) - May want to use a little less depending on your bread machine
1 tab. oil or 3 tab. butter
Additional oil to brush the loaves
Sesame seeds to top loaves if desired
Into a bread machine add all ingredients. Process mixture on "dough" setting to allow ample kneading and rising. When bread is completed, knead slightly on board. Begin shaping loaves as directed below. Brush loaves with oil and top with sesame seeds if desired. Bake on 375 until golden brown.
