Hello Dear Friends,
We had a wonderful trip to Cyprus at the beginning of summer. I personally prepared the Bitta bread on this trip and was amazed by its taste :) Bitta – Bidda A type of Cypriot bread. If you look at the content, it is completely shaped according to your taste. You can easily add onions, walnuts, halloumi cheese, green olives.

Even if you say you don't want to leaven bread dough, you can even use ready-made bread dough. In other words, it is possible to create a different flavor with 1-2 bread dough you take from the oven on Sunday morning.

The most important trick while preparing this bread is to knead the bread with olive oil after kneading it. Then you can knead it by adding the spices you want to add, such as mint, thyme and red pepper. Its taste is between bread and bun and I definitely recommend you to try it.

The amount of water may vary depending on the type of flour, as I mentioned in the recipe, add it in a controlled manner.

    I'm tired of the products I spend, It's so tasteless without salt, it's like I'm just eating dough, tasteless.
    The flour added while making the water sample and the water added later did not turn the dough into earlobes. It happened when the oil was added.
    It is full in softness, but the taste is zero.
