Flat Onion Breads
What You Need:
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • cups finely chopped onions
  • ¾ cup lukewarm water (110°F to 115°F)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2½ to 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • How To Cook:
    1. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a heavy 10- to 12-inch skillet set over high heat. Add the onions, reduce the heat to low and, stirring occasionally, cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft but not brown. Transfer them to a bowl and cool to room temperature.

    2. Melt the remaining butter in the skillet and pour it into a large mixing bowl. Add the lukewarm water and, with a large spoon, stir in the chopped onions, salt and 2½ cups of the flour, ½ cup at a time. If necessary, beat in as much of the remaining ½ cup of flour as you need to make a dough that does not stick to your fingers.

    3. Gather the dough into a large, compact ball and divide it into 16 pieces. With the palms of your hands, shape each piece of dough into a 1½ - to 2-inch ball. Then, with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out the balls one at a time into circles that are about 8 inches in diameter. Set the rounds of dough aside.

    4. Set a heavy 10- to 12-inch ungreased pan over high heat. When it is hot enough for a drop of water flicked across its surface to instantly evaporate, place 1 round of dough in the center. Brown for 3 or 4 minutes on each side, turning it over with your fingers or a wide spatula; do not be concerned if the bread does not brown evenly:

    5. Transfer the bread to a rack to dry and proceed to fry and dry the remaining dough similarly. Serve the bread in a basket or other porous container. If for any reason the bread becomes limp after a day or so, place the rounds in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake them for 5 to 10 minutes in a preheated 250 oven until they freshen.

    To Make: 16 breads
