Flax seeds breads - kifla

For some reason I always want to have some sort of homemade bread rolls. These are so nutritious, easy to make and very tasty. I love to make a double batch so I can freeze some as well ....


20g flax seeds
300 ml water
300g white flour
200g whole wheat flour
1 pack of quick action yeast or 7g
100 ml milk or water
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil

Place the seeds and the water into a small cooking pan, bring it to a boil and cook it for 5 min.
Cool the emulsion right down and add it to the flour and the rest of the ingredients.
Form a dough.
Knead the dough for 5 - 10 minutes.
Place the dough into a glass or plastic bowl, cover with clean tea towel and leave it to rest for 1 1/2 hour.
Punch down the dough and divide into 12.
Roll each portion using a rolling pin to get a flat bread.
Roll it in one direction and cut the edges using a knife.
Now you can decide whether you want them straight or curved or both :) like mine.
Arrange the breads on a baking tray, brush them with water and immediately sprinkle some seeds of your choice. I used caraway as well as freshly ground maldon salt.
Cover with the tea towel again and leave to prove in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200 C .
Bake the breads for 15 - 20 minutes.
