Recipe Notes

Conventional Cooking Method

How To Make Authentic Turkish Pide Bread

  1. Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt then add the oil and warm water.
  2. Use your hands to combine the dough and knead the mixture for 5 minutes. (Doing this activates the gluten.)
  3. When you have a soft shiny dough place the dough in a bowl and cover with a tea towel.
  4. Place the bowl in a warm spot to rise.
  5. After an hour the dough should have doubled in size. If so it's ready for use.
  6. If the dough has not doubled in size, place it in a warmer environment and leave it a little longer.

How To Pide Filling

  1. Add the minced meat, onion chilli and garlic to a frying pan, I don't use oil because I find there is enough moisture in the meat.
  2. Fry off these ingredients. The mixture will look quite wet for a while but as you continue to fry the liquid will eventually be cooked off.
  3. When the moisture starts to reduce add the diced capsicum and spices.
  4. Continue to cook the beef filling for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. When there is very little moisture left remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.
  6. Add half of the chopped parsley to the mince.
