Durum wheat sandwiches


I have always preferred the durum wheat instead of white flour, with durum wheat the bread came out more flavoured and … i don’t know but differet is sure.

 A gift bag that my mum  had sent me is finally arrived on friday and she sent me 5 kg of durum wheat just mill, so yesterday evening i prepared baked falafel,fresh homemade tzatziki and this sandwiches.

1° step prepare the dough: mix together 225 gr of lukewarm water,10 gr of brewer yeast and 1 teaspoon malt and set aside for 5 minute. in a medium bowl pour 300 gr of durum wheat flour and add a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of olive oil stir very well. Now add the water and knead for 10 minute if you are lucky and you have a mixer, and 20 minute by hand, manipulated the dough vigorously. set aside to raise for 3 hours.

2° step folding the dough : with the aim to incorporate more air in the dough you have to fold it , i prepared this picture below to expain better the procedure. when you have done with the fourth bending set again to raise with the bending side down for 2 hours.




3° step shape the sandwiches as desidered and let raise again for 1 hour, in the meantime preheat the oven at 180°C, bake until golden

NOTE:  the next time i think i will brush the surface wiht egg white and sesame for extra flavour


they came out with a crunchy crust and soft inside ;P and the baked falafel are delicious, i didnt write the recipe because is too simple. bon appetit
