If you use dry yeast is added to the flour, mix well and then add the other ingredients. Sift the flour three times (the last time together with the salt). In the middle are doing well, which poured sugar and lightly beaten egg whites, the oil and yeast leavening. Gradually pour of slightly warmed milk. Knead into a soft, elastic dough. Place in a floured container, cover and leave in a warm place to rise to double its volume. The finished dough is transferred to a lightly floured surface. Divide into 6 equal parts. Each part is formed into a roll with a length of about 40 cm (2 spans). rolls C is first formed a grid, and then twisted. Three rolls are placed side by side, about 1 finger distance from each other. With the other three rolls is formed grid Across the first three reels in the middle, placed fourth roll as it passes over the first roll, threaded under the average roll and passes over the third roll. Subsequently, on one and the other side creep remaining two rolls / fifth and sixth / - creep under the first roll, roll and above average in the third roll. then formed 4 braids. Subsequently, the free ends of the rolls, twisted four braids. Each braid hem down / to the counter / and tucked into the lattice of the pita. So shaped pita place in an oiled baking dish with a diameter of 24 cm / or on baking paper / cover with a cloth and leave for about 30 minutes in a warm place to rise. rise the pita is coated with beaten with milk and the oil yolk. After several minutes, the staining was repeated (for greater gloss after baking). Heat the oven to 180C. After the first 10-15 minutes is reduced to 160C. Bake until golden brown.

Ina, its super! Thanks for the recipes and ideas! Be alive and well, let's always in the mood and do everything with inspiration! :)

Bobby, thank you for your kind words!

I tried, but nothing happened, so did other stitch

Petya and your stitch is interesting, even if I think it is harder / slower /. What happened, and did not get? :)

I did knitting in the middle, made the top edge and then nothing can make and there BEH ruined ruined and they cmon this knit as a network and that's it.

Having spun four corners of the shallow fold down to a counter, slightly raised grid part and underneath her. Then so do the next shallow, while sticking my four braids. And then away into the pan. Now pay attention that it says *made the top edge and then nothing can be done* - if you do only one shallow and you wanted to put your into the grid without being paid and the other, the harder it will get you! :)

is again will try to see what happens
