Barbari bread also called Iranian bread or nan-e-barbari (نان بربری) is a traditional flatbread of Persian cuisine that is very popular in Iran. It is one of the many varieties of Iranian breads like Lavash bread. Barbari bread is also very popular in the United States and Canada where it is known as “flatbread”.

Steps

1
Done

Preparation of Barbari bread dough

Dissolve the baker's yeast and a teaspoon of sugar in 100 ml of lukewarm water (about 38 degrees) and let stand for about 3 minutes.

2
Done

In a large bowl or in your stand mixer, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

3
Done

Make a small hole in your mixture and pour in the baker's yeast dissolved in water. Then gradually add the 700ml of water.

4
Done

Knead your dough for a good 15 minutes, until you obtain a nice ball of homogeneous dough that is quite sticky and elastic.

5
Done

Divide your barbari bread dough ball into 4 small pieces. Place them on a well floured baking sheet, cover with a clean cloth and let the dough pieces rise for about 1h30. Your Iranian bread dough should roughly double in size!

6
Done

Preparation of Romal for a golden brown barbari bread

While the dough is rising, bring the 200ml of water to a boil in a saucepan, adding the Romal ingredients: flour and baking soda. Once the Romal is brought to a boil, turn off the heat and let cool.

7
Done

Once your dough pieces have risen well, dip your hands in the Romal so that the dough does not stick when you handle it. Flatten your dough pieces on a well-floured work surface, giving them an oval shape. They should be 1-2cm thick.

8
Done

With a knife (or the tip of your fingers), make scratches on the surface of the barbari breads.
Brush them generously with Romal then sprinkle them with your black or white sesame seeds or a mixture of both!

9
Done

Once your dough pieces are well modeled and brushed with Romal and sesame, let rise again for 45 minutes.

10
Done

Baking Barbari Bread

Preheat your oven for 15 minutes at 180˚C. You can brush them again with Romal for a more golden bread. Bake your Iranian breads for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Your homemade barbari breads are ready!
