for a moment I though that I make a mistake when I join this forum, because I never ever make a Loaf like what you do , I`m an experience with the flat (Iraqi) loaf, that usually using it her in Palestine especially for Shawarma sandwich,BUT, though that it will be nice to share my experience with other a round a world.

wish the best for all.

Greetings Neighbor,

Welcome to the site. Shawerma is a standard street food around here in Cairo and its something I've grown up with. The typical flatbread required for shawerma is an interesting bread mutation because it needs to be very strechy and elastic but not puffy. I'd love to see a detailed recipe from an experienced baker such as yourself.

Ahlan Aly,

nice to meet some one here so close to my location, and yes you are right about the flat bread describe , almost %90 of the experience in this bread to prevent it from rending when you cycle the sandwich.

a question please , does the bakeries in Egypt make it very salty like we do here in Gaza?
