Pure Egyptian flat bread 100% wild yeast !!

Hello everybody and missing you all !
Phyl Divine named me on his group on Facebook "artisan bread bakers".He named me "Pharaoh of flat Bread ".
I really was very happy but wondering all the time , why ?? May be phyl knows that Egyptians can not eat without the presence of the flat bread on their meals tables .
So I decided to present something about our daily bread in Egypt , may be to try to prove to myself that I really deserve this great title !!!!
O.k I bought this pan shown in the picture, it is better than my oven cause flat breads really need a very high temp. and it is usually baked in special ovens " with three flames".
The pictures will show you this incredible invention for flat breads , let's go ....
First the bread before being baked,,,ah forgot to tell you that I used 100% wild yeast.
Also about the dough , i made two doughs one contained 50% bread flour +50% whole wheat flour, and that is the traditional ingredients for our egyptian bread.
The other dough "which i invented" contained bread flour +whole wheat flour+grounded oats"i grinded it at home"+barley flour and of course wild yeast and tepid water .
let's go ....

"as seen on T.V" HAHAHAHA!

The harvest !! sandwiches for me and my husband, i filled it with pastrami and romi cheese. I wish i had at this time some of our wonderfull home made falafel or foul"beans".

Falafel , I am missing it!!
And here I am....Do I really deserve to be the "pharoah of flat bread"?????
