Pita bread, also known as Aish Baladi, is an Egyptian flatbread made with whole wheat flour that is usually baked in scorching-hot furnaces in Cairo's busy markets. With a baking stone and a high-temperature oven, home cooks may accomplish similar results. Bread was created in ancient Egypt from a type of ancient wheat known as "Emmer." Wheat and barley were the two types of grains that ancient Egyptians planted at the time. Wheat was a valuable commodity in Ancient Egypt's economy. It was not only used to make bread, but also as a means of payment.Emmer's high fibre content, low gluten level, and organic quality have gained it a place in the market. It was a sacred plant to ancient Egyptian Gods, particularly Osiris, and it was food for both the rich and the poor.
