No knead Ramazan Pidesi / Turkish Pide bread (flat bread) with step by step pictures

Selam everybody...........Merhaba from Türkiye

Bread or ekmek we call in Turkish language, is staple of all food in Türkey as well very much important in Turkish culture.  Not just bread, we treat our food with respect. Wasting foods (bread) is disrespect and günah or sin.

Eat and finish what you take.

Bread is always on our dinner table. Serve morning to evening. Dip in a hot creamy soup, eaten with turkish köfte (meatball) in between or any meal. Or just simply spread with salça (homemade tomato paste) for hurry brunch.

You can find dozen type of ekmek/ bread in market or local fırın (bakery) which always serve fresh and hot bread from traditional big stone oven. And there is one bread that special baked at special occasion, Ramadhan or Ramazanİt's Ramazan pidesi.

There are many classic dishes that are associated with Ramazan in Turkey. But no other item signifies the breaking of the fast better than a loaf of pide (read; pee-deh).
Ramazan pidesi, it's round and rather flat in form, and having a weave-like patterned crust shape by fingers.
Ramazan pidesi is made of wheat flour with yeast, rub with egg wash and topped with sesame and black sesame seed.

It is traditionally served for the iftar and sahur meals during the holy month of Ramadan
is highlight bread in turkey during Ramadhan month.

Bakeries all over Turkey provide this Ramazan pidesi hot and fresh about an hour or two before iftar time. So you will see a long queue in front of fırın/ bakery before iftar time to get this delicious pide hot from oven during the month of Ramadhan.

The long and time consuming queuing sometimes frustrating me cause İ should prepare meal before iftar. And my husband... he is not very much patient all the time, especially when he is in hungry and tired after work 😊.

So bake it at home is my best solution to get this ramadhan staple serve at our home. And sometime even not in Ramadhan month İ make this delicious soft slightly chewy pide bread cause İ love it! 😋

You should try this yummy bread... İ am sure you gonna love it as well.

Previously İ already posted my ramazan pidesi, you can check my previous recipe here.
But today İ will share no knead version of my ramazan pidesi. Both recipes work just great for me. But if İ am not in hurry İ would love making this no knead version, usually at late night after sahur time, keep the batter at refrigerator for slow process and bake at afternoon or near iftar time.

So here is my traditional ramazan pidesi, no knead version.

Make 2 medium loaf
  • 4 cups (500 g) whole wheat flour 
  • 1  ½  cup (375 g)  water
  • 1 tbsp (10 g) instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) oil
  • 2 tsp sugar 
  • 2 tsp salt
for glaze:
  • 2 egg yolks 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • black and white sesame seed

How to make:

1) İn a big bowl, put all dry ingredients and mix it to combine. Make a well at the center and add in wet ingredients (oil and water).

2) Using wooden spoon or spatula slowly mix from the center out until all dry ingredients wet. Do not over mix, you may have some lump from flour, it's okay (see picture #3). Cover with plastic wrap and leave it at room temperature for 60 to 70 minutes until it rise(see illustration #4).
Note: sometimes İ make the batter at night and keep in refrigerator to bake at the following day.

3) Prepare and line wide baking tray with parchment paper.
Generously flour your working table and pour the batter on to it. Gently knead by taking the sides to center for few times until it slightly cover by flour and shape-able. Divide batter into two equal part. 

4) Take one part and put on to prepared baking tray, use your palm to flatten the dough. Keep doing until it gets wide with 1-2 cm thickness. Do the same to other part. Loosely cover both flatten dough with kitchen towel and let it rest about 30 minutes or until it rise.

5) Mean while make the glaze by mixing the yolks with olive oil. Pre heat oven at 200°C.
Spread half of glaze to bread surface evenly then using your fingers tips start to push the bread,leaving the finger mark around (about 2 cm from the edge).
Then push middle part of that circle make a cross wave-like pattern with your fingers tips (see illustration above).

6) Sprinkle with white and black sesame seeds. Bake at pre heated oven about 15-20 minute or until it golden brown at the surface. Once the bread out from oven, wrap them with kitchen towel then keep inside plastic bag to make them moist.

Better to serve warm.

Afiyet Olsun. Happy baking 👱
