3 different Style Middle Eastern Breads

By this time you all may know how much I love baking and making bread! Freshly baked bread ah! there is something in it that gives me pure satisfaction and happiness! The aroma, that perfectly baked bread gives us is pure bliss, isn’t it?

I have many bread recipes on the blog whether it is sweet or savory! I thoroughly enjoyed making these cute little buns, i tried making that soft spongy bread that we get here from the bakery! We all love it to the chore, the softness, and the light warm bread is too good!

I’m so happy that I got that perfect pillowy soft bread! Here I stuffed one with a potato and chicken filling which was enjoyed by all! The other one was zaatar and labneh stuffed buns! I’m not a big fan of zaatar but hubby does! The last one is our fav Labneh and honey!

Youtube video uploading is very slow, so I’m sharing the blog post, in case if someone wants to try it out! This is the last post of this Ramadan series! Seriously this Ramadan comes to an end in a blink, with heavyheartedly bidding adieu to this Holy month! May Allah accept all our good deeds and let’s all pray together for a healthy better tomorrow!

I Will be sharing Eid Dessert recipes from tomorrow onwards!
