Markouk Bread


Village Style Markouk Bread (Baroody)

Markouk saj bread is a traditional Middle Eastern bread, which is cooked on a kind of convex metal griddle called a ‘saj’. It is also commonly called just markouk or markook. Markouk is similar to pita bread, which is another very popular type of Arabic bread. It is thin, almost translucent and usually quite large, with a diameter of about 2 feet. It can be eaten alone or used as a wrap for meats, cooked or raw vegetables. Dry yeast is the rising agent that is used when making this bread. Warm water is used to activate the yeast and the rising process is given a little boost with olive oil, which also gives it a distinctive flavor.
