This was my first time making and eating an arab bread recipe and I have to say that it was a very satisfying recipe. Not only was it easy to make and did not require a ton of ingredients; it was delicious to eat and had the perfect texture to it. I could see myself making this recipe again and would gladly give it 4 stars.
