Whole meal Pitta Bread

If you have never tried fresh home baked naan or pita breads,you are missing out something  in your life. There is nothing else to beat the taste of  fresh and  straight from the oven bread.
Recipe adated from the book Bread by Christine Ingram.
Sorry guys in my earlier post ,the measurement for water was wrong,i'm extremely sorry about that.Now i have corrected it so you can follow this recipe.
Makes 6 to 10 pittas
Wholemeal flour-100g
White Bread flour-250g
Dried yeast-1 tsp
Olive oil-1 tbsp
Warm water-210 ml
Honey-2 tsp
Salt-1 tsp
Combine flour,salt and yeast together. Make a well in the center add oil,honey and water, knead it together to make a smooth dough. Transfer to the work surface,knead it again for 5 minutes. Place the dough in a oiled bowl. Cover it with a cling film,leave it in a warm place and allow it to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
Take the dough,punch the air back,divide the dough into 6 to 10 balls,shape it into smooth balls, cover and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 230 degree celsius. Take the dough,roll each ball into oval shape.Cover it and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.Place the pittas in the hot baking sheet 2 or 3 at a time,cook for 2 minutes or until puffed,it doesn't have to look brown on top. Repeat with the remaining dough. Serve the bread warm with curries and salad.
If the pitta's doesn't puff up,don't worry ,take it out after 2 minutes. It will be still soft and nice to eat.

Wow, I too made Pita yesterday, but with plain flour. Then I added Zatar spice mix on top and served along with Paneer Malai Kofta. It was heavenly.
I will try ur version of mixing the two flours next time. Looks so soooo soft dear and it has come out very well.
