Faluche Du Nord ( French Flat Bread )


Faluche Du Nord is a French flat bread usually eaten at breakfasts or used to make sandwiches. The bread has a white crust ( though mine doesn't have as I have used wheat flour instead of maida ).

 I have no idea whether this bread is made with wheat or no but as I have decided to reduce my maida intake , I nowadays replace it with wheat flour wherever possible. The result was good and the bread was soft though it may not have puffed up as much as it should .

This popular bread was our this month's  home-bakers-challenge  an event started by priya suresh   Thanks Priya for introducing us to this lovely bread.





Ingredients :

2 cups ............................wheat flour
1/2 cup...........................maida ( ALF )
1 n 1/2 tsp ......................active dry yeast
1/2 tsp ..........................salt
2 tbsp + 1 tsp.................groundnut oil







Method :

In a bowl mix yeast , salt and 1/4 cup warm water.

Keep it aside for 10 minutes or till it turns frothy.

Now take wheat flour , maida, 2 tbsp oil and add this yeast mixture to it.

Knead the dough very well for 8 to 10 minutes to soft elastic consistency.

Keep it in a greased bowl and rest it for 1 n 1/2 hour.

Remove the dough and roll it in a 1/4 inch thick disc.

Cut in round shapes with a round cutter.

Place the rounds on a greased baking tray and again keep to rise for 1 hour.

Brush the top of the dough with 1 tsp oil and sprinkle some wheat flour on it.

Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes .
