Yemenite Recipe

Yemenite is one of the delicious treats we used to have when we were kids. I remember mom making them; she’d let us help ourselves to another serving which would highlight our mornings. Today, we make them for mom to show her how much we appreciate her efforts! Shall we get started?

What you’ll need:

1/4 lb margarine
1 tsp salt
1 cup water
2 1/4 cups flour


In a food processor add salt, pepper, and water.

Process the mixture until it’s created a ball.

Add more water or flour if necessary. You don’t want the dough to be sticky, but you do want it to be soft.

Take the dough to another bowl and let this stand for about one hour.

Divide them into two parts.

Roll one part of it and add margarine.

Fold into thirds and fold it into thirds once again. Repeat.

With a dampened towel, let this stand for about one hour.

Repeat with the other dough.

Separate into thirds.

Roll out think pieces.

Heat your skillet and add 1 teaspoon of margarine. Fry pancake and flip until both sides are golden brown.

Add to a warm plate and make the rest of the dough.

Serve with tomato sauce and hummus.

Have you ever tried making this before? If so, how did they turn out? We thought it was a bit challenging to make at first especially with the folding part, but this was years ago when we were barely starting out. Of course, with practice, you’ll get the hang out it.
