Flatbread recipe from the Andalusian, with our worked out version:
Recipe for Folded Bread from Ifriqiyya
Andalusian p. A-59
Take coarsely ground good semolina and divide it
into three parts. Leave one third aside and knead
the other two well and it is made from it. Roll
out thin bread and grease it. Sprinkle some of
the remaining semolina on top and fold over it
and roll it up. Then roll it out a second time
and grease it, sprinkle some semolina on top and
fold it over like muwarraqa (puff pastry). Do
this several times until you use up the remaining
third of the semolina. Then put it in the oven
and leave it until it sets. Remove it when tender
but not excessively so. If you want, cook the
flatbreads at home in the tajine. Then crumble it
and with the crumbs make a tharid like fatir,
either with milk like tharid laban, which is
eaten with butter and sugar, or with chicken or
other meat broth, upon which you put fried meat
and a lot of fat. Dust it with cinnamon and serve
3 c semolina ~ 1/4 c olive oil 2/3 c water
Knead 2 c of semolina with the water for about 10
minutes, until smooth. Roll out to about 12"x12".
Spread with about 2 t oil, sprinkle on 2-3 T
semolina. Fold in half, roll up, mash together.
Repeat about five more times, until all the last
cup of semolina is used up.
Roll out to about 12"x10". Bake in 300° oven for
about 50 minutes, until baked but not crisp
(except thin parts).
