Spicy Lentil Flatbread

This flat lentil bread recipe is sooooo good and delicious. There are different kinds of lentils: red or orange, brown, green, yellow. I made my lentil bread with red ones. You can find all of them in your local super markets and Middle East grocery stores.

There are used different names in different languages for lentils, for example in Persian and Arabic it’s called ‘ Adas’, in English ‘ Lentil’ , in Azerbaijani ‘ Marje’.Maybe some of you do not know what red lentils are. I have attached a photo of this kind of lentil.

You can make lentil bread with all of those lentils. This bread is very light, low in carb but high in fibre and good source of protein.

I frequently make this bread, because we enjoy it a lot. Recipe for this bread is flexible. I mean you have loads and loads of possibilities to change the flavour and create a new flavour and taste.

It’s super easy recipe to follow plus you can prepare the batter, pour it in a jar and keep it fresh in the fridge for next few days. Just bring the batter out of the fridge before cooking and bring the batter to room temperature.

This bread might be severed warm or cold and goes well with all kinds of soup, and you can top it with your favourite toppings. Good point of this bread is not only you can cook it in a pan but also you can cook it in the oven : 190C for 20-25 minutes.

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.
