• 500 grams strong white flour
  • 350 ml water
  • 1 1/2 tsp fast action dried yeast
  • 9 grams salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Tiger Paste

  • 60 grams rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 65 ml water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil


Mix together the ingredients for the tiger paste, cover and set aside. This will keep in the fridge for a few days and is enough for 2 loaves at least

Mix together the dough ingredients, keeping the salt and yeast separate until the water is added.

Bring together into a dough and knead well on a lightly oiled surface until smooth and elastic

Leave to prove, in an oiled bowl until doubled in size, cover with a clean towel.

Knock the dough back, shape into the desired shape and place on a floured baking tray (or pizza tray)

Heat the Oven to 220C

Brush the tiger paste over the dough in a thick, smooth layer

Cover the dough and leave to double in size again. 30-60 mins depending on room temperature

Bake for 10 mins at 220 then turn down to 200 and bake for a further 10-20. It should be cooked after 10 so after that it is a matter of colouring. After about 15 mins it should be golden

Remove from oven, place on a rack to cool for at least 30 mins before cutting.

If you take a look at my other recipes your could also easily make some homemade Best butter and paneer cheese and enjoy them all together ❤️

Published by Wife of a Turkish Life

Just a normal lass living in a beautiful city in the uk and soon to move over to Turkey. I have 3 beautiful children and a lovely Kurdish hubby from turkey. We currently live apart from our Turkish family in turkey and live in the Uk and soon to move back over to turkey for good. I love everything about my life! I absolutely adore cooking and baking, I cook a beautiful meal and dessert every night and light lunch during the day if we are hungry. I bake a lot too hence why I’m growing to the size of an elephant and find it hard to shed the lbs (ooops) I also love, shopping, socialising, date night together with the hubby when he’s home, I love make up and being and hairdresser and beautiful among others things I love everything about self presentation. At the moment I am a fully mummy to two little beauties and I love it. Please feel free to follow my blog and have a little onsite into our life. I’m just starting out so there’s much more to be added each day. Please be kind and if You don’t like my life then don’t feel the need to stick around and tell me in a nasty comment 😝.
