Olive & Sumak Manakeesh
|1.||Active Dry Yeast||40 gms|
|2.||All Purpose Flour||400 gms|
|3.||Warm Water||100 ml|
|6||Dried Thyme||40 gms|
|8||Sesame Seeds||1 tbsp|
|9||Olive Oil||3 tbsp|

• To develop the yeast, mix it with a bit of warm water.
• In a bowl, take the flour and add the yeast along with a bit of water. Mix the dough. The dough needs to be soft. Add some salt. Add olive oil and knead the dough well. Rest the dough for around 30 minutes.
• For the stuffing, use the strained curd; add olives, parsley, toasted sesame seeds, salt, black pepper, thyme and sumac powder. Add some shredded cheese to the mix as well. Mix well.
• When the dough has fully risen, place it onto a floured surface, and press down to form into a disk shape. Spread with the stuffing mixture and brush with olive oil. Cook in a 200 degree oven for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the dough is crispy and brown. Serve warm.
