نان پیتای یونانی

نان یکی از اجزای مهم در رژیم غذایی کشورهای خاورمیانه و مدیترانه ای هست. من در چند پست قبلی‌ام طرز تهیه ی نان بربری – تافتون و سنگک رو به اشتراک گذاشتم . دیروز این نان‌های پیتا رو درست کردم که خیلی شبیه به نان تافتون خودمون هست فقط با این فرق که برای پخت این نان از شیر هم استفاده میشه.

نان پیتا یک نوع نان مسطح و گردی هست که در یونانلبنانو کشورهای عربی پخت میشه.

اگر دوست دارید مزه ی نان پیتای واقعی رو بدونید این دستور ساده و سریع را امتحان کنید. این نونهای پیتا خیلی نرم و لطیف هستن. خیلی آسون تهیه میشه و اینقدر خوشمزه هستن که فوری هم خورده میشن. ولی اگر اضافه اومد میتونید فریز کنید و هر وقت خواستید فوری در فر گرمش کنید و هنوز هم مثل نون تازه عِطر و طعمش باقی میمونه. از نان پیتا میشه با کبابمرغفلافلکشک بادمجان یا انواع ساندویچ استفاده کرد.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
